So, when we got to work Monday, there was a "wet paint" sign on the stairs and the stairs were covered in sand. We could not understand what the sand was for.
Today, one of my co-workers, Dona, had a "light bulb moment". She said "OMG. When I talked to the building owner, he told me he hired a crew to come sand and repaint the stairs. I came up the office Saturday and I tried to speak to them but they spoke no english."
These guys literally went and bought a bag of sand and threw it all over our stairs!!!!!!!!!!! Apparently, that's what they got from "sand the stairs".
I laughed for a good 5 minutes.
