Aaahh!!! Real Monsters

Back in the day (15 years ago) there was a show called Aaahh!!! Real Monsters. It ran on Nickelodeon and at this time I watched it. Or was at least more familiar with shows on Nick. I mean I was only 13ish.

In the show Aaahh!!! Real Monsters there existed monsters (duh). I recall that these monsters entered our world somehow through toilets and they had a thing for nail clippings. I wouldn't say I liked the show, but I did watch it from time to time.

I bring this show up because of the nail clippings. If you know me and my sisters, feet are kinda gross to us. Although saying "kinda" for my sisters is a huge understatement. So in the show, when there was a jar full of these clippings, it was gross. Nowadays, I am totally grosses out by the sound of nail clipping. I mean, I know it has to get done and I don't mind when I clip my own nails, but the sound of someone clipping their nails...that's bad. So bad, that when Shann clips his nails he does so in the bathroom with the doors closed and if he remembers, with the shower still running because he knows I can't take the noise.

About three years ago, I was sitting in an inservice for the school I taught at and one of the counsoulers took out a nailclipper and just started clipping. In the middle of inservice! That is just gross. Not only can I not avoid the sound, but where do you think those nail clippings ended up? The trash can? No, they were on the floor. He just clipped his nails onto the floor of the cafeteria and left them there.

Then a week ago, during our weekly company meeting a coworker whips out some nail clippers and goes to town. During the meeting! The only thing beteween me and that was Shannon. So not only was I in a mandatory meeting with nail clipping going on about 4 feet from me, but the nail clippings were left on the conference table! OMG! We eat on that thing (and they don't clean it off often)!

What kind of person carries nailclippers with them at all times anyway?
