Bedbugs taking over NY Health Department! As in, the actual building(4 posts)
Another news piece, another batch of infuriating quotes and information from/about uninformed people shrugging away the issue.
"'People are really upset,' one worker said, adding that while it was never made public, a bedbug colony took up residence on the same site two years ago.
'They told us we were crazy,' the worker said, referring to higher-ups. 'I said, "I know what I saw. I'm not crazy."'"
[Emphasis mine... as my blood pressure rises...]
HAHA WAIT WAIT EVEN BETTER!: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/bugs_bite_at_health_offices_tMXbso88N9s00KqvCOoeMM
"'It's fairly common to have a couple of bedbugs brought in by an individual,' said department spokeswoman Jessica Scaperotti. 'It's not an infestation.'"
"Fairly common"? If she knew what she was talking about, she'd realize that saying it's "fairly common" for this to happen in the offices actually makes the problem sound even worse.
I know there is some serious irony in here somewhere...
Yes -- I "enjoyed" this one too. Blog post on it here.
