Every office has a Schlepper: the person nominated for every distasteful, uncomfortable,or heavy task that keeps the workplace running smoothly. Things like taking out thegarbage, or bringing in the new water bottle; and while that may feel like drawing theshort straw, your back feels it for what it is: 42lbs.
Think about it: that’s the equivalent weight of two car tires, or a toddler (or two). If your standard water cooler bottle was a turkey, it could feed 15 hungry peeps!
If you wouldn’t ask your receptionist to toss a couple tires over her shoulder, maybe it’stime to rethink your water system.
