No matter how smelly my shoes are, they won't ever get as bad as this kid...
Even the panel of “odor specialists” resisted the urge to cover their noses as pungent smells emanated from the smelliest sneakers in this year’s Annual National Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest. Seven kids, ages 7 to 16, from across the country arrived in Montpelier, Vermont, yesterday wearing stinky shoes that won them regional recognition. In its 37th year, the Odor-Eaters Rotten Sneaker Contest is the ultimate test of just how dirty and stinky sneakers can get when they’re part of an active kid’s life. Sneakers are judged on the conditions of the sole, tongue, heel, toe, laces or Velcro, eyelets/grommets, overall condition and most important ODOR. Mason Bennett, 16, from Eagle River, Alaska, took home the golden sneaker trophy along with $25,000, an all expense paid trip to New York City, and a year’s supply of odor-eaters products. Mason’s sneakers will also be enshrined in the Odor-Eaters “Hall of Fumes” in Montpelier.
Someone posted this in our office. It's a "Free Compliments" poster. and I have to admit it totally made my day! Here's the link to the website where I found this. You can download one for your office and give people a little Thursday smile!
Ipsos/Reuter's did a poll about worker satisfaction. They did the poll all over the globe and found that 3 in 10 workers say their workplace is not good for their mental health. An extensive new
survey finds that whether it is due to stress, interpersonal conflict, lack of feedback or promotion, 27 percent of workers in 24 countries report being unhappy with the psychological aspects of their work environment. Uh oh. Read more about it here.
