Community Cups

(PICTURE: Water cooler and cups at school)

I had a post a few weeks ago about the community combs in public bathrooms. Well, this one tops them all. I've been meaning to post about this forever because it's just unbelievable. At my school are a bunch of water coolers for the students. Next to each water cooler are four cups sitting upside down in a little basin. The basin has about a 1/4 of an inch of water in it. These cups are for the students -- for all the students.

That's right, these are community cups. All x-hundreds of students who come in and out of Language Link each day share these cups. They fill them up at the water cooler, take a sip, then put them back. The next kid picks up the cup, fills it up, takes a sip, and puts it back. I know kids get sick from each other at school but COME ON!!!!
