I just came back from a 3 hour orientation for a temp job I'm going to start week after the next, from 4pm to 9pm 7 days a week.
The showers in the mens area of a homeless shelter downtown is going to be closed down for a couple months (at least) for renovation, because of mold in the walls.
They are setting up 6 portable shower stalls in the covered (but open) parking area of the garage. Instead of showering indoors (and it's required if they are going to spend the night), over 200 men are going to be required to take a shower and step out into the cold night air of Novemeber, December and January. Since it's outside, the men will be allowed to smoke.
I'm going to be the one handing out soap/shampoo/condition to the guys waiting (sorry, no towels, use your own, or a t-shirt) and keep the line moving so 200 guys can shower in 5 hours. Out in the open air parking garage, but with the smoke.
Hey, I agreed to the assignment, no worries about me. I need the cash.
Somehow, the wasted space etc. issues at A2k don't seem much compared to having to shower basically outside during this winter, in order to qualify for a bunk bed, or mat on the floor.
