Maybe it's just me but when I do a job I want the quality of my work to say that I cared about what I was doing. It doesn't matter how important or menial the task is. I see everything I do as a reflection on me and the kind of person I am. I don't want my work to say I'm lazy or sloppy. I think that concept is lost on a lot of people these days.
In the deli/bakery area that I work in, I'm the first one in every morning. I walk in to a pig sty on a regular basis. It drives me crazy. One of the first things I'm hit with every morning is how filthy the floor is even though someone claimed to have mopped it. When I have the time I'll occasionally mop my half of the floor.
The other day I had the time so that's what I did. Then because I was so happy to see a clean floor I took a picture.
Believe it or not, the dirty half is how dirty it actually was when I first walked in in the morning. I would be totally embarrassed to say I did that.
