Help please. What is the proper protocol upon discovering filthy conditions in a children’s play area?
Last week, I was disappointed to be notified by my dashboard that my back, right blinker lamp was out.
Oh no! But I’m a good driver! And good drivers use their blinkers!
Given the festivities that were upon us, it wasn’t until Monday evening that I was able to get to the dealership for a quick fix. Seeing Bennett on my hip, after informing me that I’d have about a 45 minute wait, my friendly service advisor, Erin, made sure to inform me of the children’s play area that was available to us.
Now, I’m not one to lysol everything before Bennett touches it. Trying to bolster his immune system, I’m quite comfortable having him come into contact with the world’s everyday germs.
But this was exceptional.
Everything looked to be coated in old grime. I wiped the two teeny, yellow & green blocks onto which Bennett latched and one – ONE! – little red chair. And look! Look at how the baby wipe turned grey!
This doesn’t necessarily strike fear or panic into me. But all the same, it’s pretty disgusting and we’ll likely be frequenting that dealership in the future.
Would you be inclined to notify someone? Is that a pointless endeavor? Would you let it go? I certainly have no intentions of being nasty or outraged. It’s likely that the slow accumulation of filth happened so gradually that nobody even noticed the vibrant toys losing their color under the grime.
