About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Damn those fitted sheets!

Oh. Please.

Nanny State Madness: California‘s Proposed ’Fitted Sheet’ Law

Look, I'm sorry that some folks will have to be hotel maids all their working lives. It's a damned lousy job and no mistake about it.

But every job has it's hazards and getting a kink in your back because of fitted sheets is pretty small potatoes. FWIW, one of the problems my wife had as a RN working a hospital MedSurg floor was moving morbidly obese patients around. THAT will put your back out in a second! I can't count the number of times she came home griping about various lardassed sickos as she went looking for the ibuprofen. Having a BS in Nursing didn't help her avoid the same problems of your average hotel maid, as a matter of fact I'd bet that maid will have far fewer back problems over the course of her professional career than any RN working in a hospital. Just my uneducated opinion on that one, but I've yet to see any mattress that topped 300 lbs.

It used to be that lousy working conditions served as an incentive to move on up in the work world. As I've already implied, some folks never will advance and that's too bad. But whoever promised any of us a rose garden?

To quote Lou Reed from his "New York" LP in 1989, "Life is always good but never fair".

I was a hotel maid in college. I could work from 8a - 1p and earn about $85 per day, plus tips, and this was nearly 20 years ago.
Its not a terrible job, just one that requires you to work hard, quickly and precisely.
Something liberals constantly tell the poor they cannot do.
Fitted sheets wouldnt make a bit of difference, its toilet scrubbers and short vacuums that cause back pain...
