I drove by Old Milwaukee Cafe & Dessert Company on Tacoma's Sixth Avenue on the way back from the bank today. Once again, the mop and bucket were in plain view. But today's view through the wrap-around fishbowl windows offered something new: a tub of cleaning supplies sitting on a table.
I know Old Milawaukee is a small place and storage is an issue; I've seen the mop and bucket on the sidewalk during business hours. I bet the person who mops the floors finishes the job and scoots out the front door at the end of the day, which is why the mop and bucket sit so visibly.
I commend Old Milwaukee for mopping the floor every day. But seeing the used mop and bucket through the window as I drive by is only slightly less appetizing than a sign that hung on Old Milwaukee's window about a year ago, apologizing to customers for being closed because "Pat has shingles."
As the kids say, too much information!
