Gum is meant to be chewed. Not swallowed, eaten, put under a table and especially not meant to be smeared on a seat.
Sunday, some cool kids decided it would be a good idea to take their freshly chewed gum and smear it on the top of one of the waiting seats at work. Nasty.
A co-worker noticed it festering on the cushion and grabbed my attention. We scrubbed and scrubbed at the gum trying to remove it and it wouldn’t come off. The sticky residue would only smear more when trying to get it off. Eventually, after forks, screw drivers and Brillo pads were used to remove it, it disappeared.
Now that’s what I call a sticky situation (haha)
