Ugh...I work in a jail, and the only place for me to pump is the ERT (emergency response team) closet...One of my co-workers cleaned it up really nice for me and put a chair for me to sit in...well when I am working, I leave my pump sitting in the chair...someone went into the closet to get something out, and threw my pump in the floor, on top of a nasty broom so they could use the chair to sit something on...my 300 dollar pump...thrown in the floor...not to mention all the nasty germs that it picked up lying on that broom...our floors are filthy. I just had a guy pee in the floor earlier...I am livid. Vent over.

You might even note there's a video camera taping them and violaters will be thrown in the cell with the smelliest toilet. **grin**

Omg I'd be livid!! Someone threw my oump on the floor at my work too!! I made sure to let everyone know that think was $400 (had to buy from medical supply store so it was more $) and if it broke I'd be unable to work... we're short staffed though and people hate being called in or asked to stay longer.

Definitely put a sign on it... nobody touches mine anymore!!

I'm sorry that happened. :(

At the same time I think it's funny you said "paws" because I say that too. My 4 year old thinks his 3 year old sibling actually has paws!

happy

I would be ticked I would request a more appropriate place to pump if possible, just because of people being rude and not respecting others property. again if possible ask for a better place ! I think its wierd how so many places dont take this into consideration

WOW!!! Ya--I'd be ticked off too!!! When I worked as a Cashier, I had to pump in the BATHROOM!!! ICK!! It was either there or the break room!!!!!!  :  0 I left that company, as they were VERY un-bf'ing friendly--plus they did NOT CARE about their Employees AT ALL!!!!

I would keep it in a safer place, warning people about it will only go so far. Do you keep it in a bag?  If not you should get one to put it in, that would help it to not get all dirty if someone does move it. Also you could put a hook or nail in the wall to hang it up out of the way.

It's already in a bag.  I sprayed the bag down with a disinfectant.
