Would you quit? Would you leave, immediately? Or, would you just stick it out?
Kelly Anderson took a temporary position at the IRS office in Covington, Kentucky. The bed bugs were so bad, according to an article on WCPO.com, that workers covered their seats in plastic bags. After two days of working there, Anderson quit.
“People had warned them to put plastic garbage bags on their chairs so that you wouldn’t catch it,” Anderson said.
Bed bugs have been reported in a number of different work settings. Sometimes it’s because the workers go out and bring them in and at other times, it’s because the bed bugs are brought in with the people who come into the buildings.
The firefighters in the city of Bellefontaine brought bed bugs into their firehouse unknowingly when making a routine call. The bugs hopped a ride on one of the firemen and then bit one of the firemen in his bed, says abc6onyourside.com. Bed bugs are notorious for hitching rides on unsuspecting visitors.
Bed bugs seem to be reported on the rise in libraries, which is almost understandable as a large amount of people cycle through the average library. Even County and City offices across the nation are reporting incidents of bed bugs.
The problem is on the rise. It’s creepy that you can’t even go into work and not be bothered by the growing problem.
