Pointless

In the pool where I’m swimming there’s an old chap working in the locker rooms. His job is to mop up water. See, he’s got this squeegee mop, but randomly he also uses a broom and dustpan to scoop up bigger, more evil puddles of water!

Before you swim you have a shower, right, and drop water on his floors, then you return from the pool, dripping again, then have another shower, drip-drip, go sit in the steam room, shower, more dripping, and then finally you leave… The whole time he keeps shooting angry glances at you and follows you around with his mop/dustpan.

I think he really hates me, and all the other people who daily come and drip water on his floors. Or maybe he’s just a modern-day Sisyphus
