The Cancer Factory strikes again. April 2, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — Annette @ 5:23 pm

Some of you may recall the strange affair of the Cancer Factory (aka – MAPEI Corp.).  This is a place where I worked for two summers in very menial, grunt-type jobs.  It was just a bad place all around.  Dirty Mexicans and sexual harrassment, plus working with carcinogenic dust all day (the place produces grouts, mortars, and other cement-based construction materials – that are all carcinogenic).  So generally, you just don’t want to be there.  Some of the managers would make fun of me if I tried to protect myself by wearing a mask, or if I tried to avoid breathing in the plumes of dust.  One manager who mocked my healthy fear of carcinogens, Byron, was a workaholic with a temper.  I heard recently that Byron died in the fall.  What’d he die of?  Throat cancer. 

Oh, the irony.
