Small Tip from My Experience

Hi Folks!!!

This is a small tip I wanted to publish, bcoz this often happens for many of us.

Problem: What if u bite ur tongue while u eat something or, what if ur fud stuff injures ur tongue n it bleeds badly?

Solution: 1st of all, plz don't panic. this was the advice given to me the other day while the same happened to me. Its common thing tht most of us do such while we eat, but it appears to b a problem when it bleeds for long time. I read tht tongue's most sensitive muscles get injured very easily but at the same time heal very quick. So, though it bleeds for several minutes, its not necessary u run n c a doctor. But do some first aid to stop the bleeding., like eat some sugar, or eat an icecream if available which clots the blood. Or else use a clean cloth 2 press over n hold tight for few mins. Also, try pressing a moistened tea bag over the cut. Well, if there r any bleeding disorders, it takes much longer time.
And finally if it takes very long tym, plz do consult ur physician, but i guess this rarely happens.
As I read tht tongue's extensive blood vessel system helps it form new cells very quickly.
Anyways, try this out when u hav such problem.

Hope u never come across!!!

Second n Final Episode

So, i guess my readers r eagerly waiting for my next episode of tht incident.

Well, Thanks for waiting..

Here goes the continuation........

As we both were seriously working .., I successfully completed jolting down list of chemicals in one rack, n i was jus wondering, 4m which row shld i bgin, for the next rack..n so, after a glance, i decide to start 4m the top row, so pulled a stool 2 stand high, not tht i'm short, but the racks r so tall...,hehe. So it went on for the next few mins.., untill I unknowingly stepped onto the rack 4m the stool, believe me, i hav never been 2 any gymnastic classes, neither gemini circus was my was my seriousness in the work tht made me do so...,(hehe) so wht if i step there..???

Now, on step was fine, n the following gaint leap made tht day 2 b noted in the calendar. My next step went on the sliding rack.., n u can guess by now, wht wld hav happnd.., A big "Yes" 2 most of ur guesses. hmm.., now my step on the sliding rack, made it tilt very slightly, n all the chemical bottles made their way down . When my childhood cartoon heros like Spiderman, Batman, Iceman, etc; din turn up on tht moment, I magically managed 2 put them back...infact holding the slightest slided rack...n pushing it back. I guess thts the quickest action I ever took, which really stopped the bottles 4m falling n saved us. So u might b thinking, so this is all the next episode..nope..not all........, while I tried my best to escape 4m the beast's(Manager) clutching fists....meanwhile another big gaint bottle of 20lbs made a narrow escape 4m my clutching fists.

This escape made a loud noise, n white colored fumes blew us away, frightening for tht fraction of moment, my heart said me 'I am sorry', ..I din know I am gonna liv neither did my frn. slowly when the fumes vanished, v cld c eachother alive n fine. Jus dramatically, v felt like hugging each other, n say u r fine right?

But, wht abt the 10lbs chemical....?? tht spilled on the ground, wht if it was a concentrated acid?, wht if its most hazardous fuming chemical.? Thank God, it was none of them....bcoz v r fine. the question was, which was tht chemical tht gav a lifeline, though its home was completely broken? Do u think these were all our thoughts then at tht moment. No way....v moved out the area but v were standing still for the next 10mins. While v then recognised v r completely okay, n wanted 2 b for the future, b4 the monster steps in,.....v went there n tuk a luk. Tht was a disaster. Believe me folks, the grey colored floor turned into black.... Wht 2 do???

Thereafter the action part started...v knew while our chances of working @ the campus were least, say 2%, v don wanna giv up. V jus tuk another resolution for tht day, watever it might b lets bring the original color. My 1st step in the action part was 2 know wht was tht stupid chemical which din like its designated area n slipped out. B4 recognising tht, v came up wid something else. Thts the kind of drowsyness v were by then experiencing.
V went to the spilled spot n tried luking the name of the chemical. Found it was "CHCl3" , its because of tht v were feeling drowsy in tht closed stock room. Chemistry ppl hav got me by now..right,well for othrs, lemme tell u the name,it was "Chloroform". It din matter 4 us even when v saw thts chloroform, wht only was imp then..."watever, lets keep up our jobs" So v made sure no one's on their way 2 tht room., n also the spilled chemical wldnt harm us. Then rolling up our sleeves, wearing gloves, disposing the waste stuff over there, were the next few mins work.
But v then din know, the spilled chemical shld go in the hazardous waste bottles, wat all v did was dump tht in the sink. When, powder kind spillage was removed, the liquid kind was left. Paper napkins, made our work easy...n 4m 1 end myself n 4m the other my frn,...rolled on the floor cleaning untill it tuk its original form. The breaks in between were 2 run out n make sure tht beast doesnt make his way there, anyways v cannot stop him 2 enter, neither cant stop him 2 smell, but its jus a satisfaction. n also 2 make sure his surviellance camera doesn't broadcast our panicing moments, which he wld njoy watching 4 his lifetime. finally it tuk 2 hrs 2 make tht luk grey, but there were black stains very clearly visible. There was nothing else v cld do more than tht. When tht was almost done, the monster entered, v were numb, blank, n pale...i cld say anything 2 describe our situ.., he made his way walking 2wards the deadspot..while v were counting on our fate, surprisingly, he came bak cool n said "gr8 work". Wht???? din he notice tht..or is it bcoz v wiped it so clean tht he said so??? how cld say tht??? it is not even insight of the did he know., if even the odors shut their duty 2 diffuse around. wht shld b our answer? wht hppnd 2 all discussed answers tht jus faded away 4m memory 4 tht second.??Numerous questions came up....
actually he was not interested wid the work but more interested in pattng us for doing gud job, which doesnt exactly mean tht but seems as if it was so.It was again 2 try n try his stupid flirtricks.........., Again we moved away 4m his so called patting n left the place.
Tht was the most memorable n hardest work I ever did. n also the " Accidentally happened Incident"

Accidental Incident

Hii all,

I am back again wid a new one.., its all abt my experience when i started working at the univeristy campus. Actually, I donno wat word shld I use to exactly describe the whole thing that happened. Wld like 2 throw a quiz to the literature specialists to swing into action, n leave an exact description of this in jus 1 word if they think my title is not apt.

Well, to begin with, Me n my frnd got our 1st campus job after 3 months search, one of our frns referred us there. V were very happy that we got 1 after many dayz. And ask me wht work we did..its student assistantship at the Chemistry Lab in the Chemistry Dept of our skool. We had to work under the Lab Manager. The lab manager is a hefty blackman. Heard he is well known to fire students who do not know to answer his junk questions, n Quite fond of gals, so we got the job said our other frns. The day we started, our frn was wid us, helping us learn the new stuff. but 2 days after tht she flew out of the country. It was december 12th 2006, Morning 8:45 am.,stone cold, even in texas. With the job excitement me n my frn ran 2 work(na........!!! the reason was its hard walking in tht cold winter morning breeze, so we ran 2 keep ourselves warm). Soon after walking into the dept, we came 2 know there were very very few ppl working on tht day, n then Mr.Manager was ready n gav us the work for tht day. And the work he gav was not at all a hard nut to crack; hmm...1 cannot even dream such work 4m him. He was always known for his foolishness, which in his literature is termed as intelligence. We were asked to do the inventory of the chemicals available at Solutions room. 'okay lets kick start the work, n get gud appreciations by the end of the day'... This was tht day's initial resolution. so u might b wondering whether there's something more abt this day...u r on the right track. Yes!! there came a lifeline for us tht day.
Now, our work place was very Gud, n it definetly deserves an introduction of 1 line " The room was in the 1st floor of the building, it had a surviellance camera too".Thts Mr.Manager's way of keeping an eye on his crew. So, we stepped in , he showed us the work, n said " I will be out n u gals carry on wid this stuff, not sure when I vl b bak". n the monster left..oops thts the manager. excuse me, thts my inner voice, which forgot 2 shut its mouth. Now did he leave? no frns,he vl not. Until he comes near n tries his gr8, in my words stupid flirt tricks. Well, while he successfully failed using his tricks, he left.
We were relieved. 'uffffff'...tht was a sigh 4m both of us. Okay now it was not as hogwarts skool of witchcraft n wizard arts to welcome us wid a magic wand, but its Lamar skool of Chemistry wid all the Chemical Solutions in the room which invited us with those pungent smells n precipitating gases saying 'welcome young gals on board'. "Ok thanks" was said by us, n tuk some papers, pen went thru the room, n decided then n there tht the seven$ pay was not worth of our abt to begin work. Coz its hard jolting down so many diff odors.., i mean the chemical odors. wht if an odor of them escapes, n if that hound(guess whos tht?) smells tht? we went imagining the phrase" i am pleased 2 inform u, ur services r no more reqd by this dept, thanks"....A big No. V don wanna hear tht in reality. "So b careful gals", said those still standing bottles filled wid odors.
Anyways, we din wanna take a chance, neither giv the monster...i'm sorry the manager a chance. So we clipped our mouths, pulled up our sleeves,except for few questionaire in b/w, gav a jump start 2 our work. btw we din hav hand gloves; thank god the safety dept lady wasnt there then, else the start wld b the end too. While working, I remember even now, tht we then din remember then,to see the clock. Not tht the work is so interesting, but its requiring attention. Finally the tym has come, which made us luk at the clock again n again n panicfor the next few hrs, not becoz we weren't meeting the deadline. But...........................................

Wanna know y???, then wait for the next 1 to come up !!! be continued
