Have you ever noticed the cleanliness of our cafeteria after the lunch bell? It’s near magic.  Our school staff uses two different mops: one to clean the floor and another to clean the tables. But with budget cutbacks, wouldn’t our school be better off if we use just one mop?

We live in an era of tightening the belt, so we must try our best to save as much money as possible. Using one mop to clean both the cafeteria tables and the floor would save the school the cost of a second mop.

“I think that our school should stop trying to earn money from donations and just save money by cutting out unimportant stuff, like having two separate mops. It’s such a waste of money,” said Terdi Taybulls.

Cleaning the tables and the floors with two mops is also a waste of time. Why resort to switching mops when using one mop would be twice as fast? All that is needed to be done is to lift the mop on the tables and then drop it back on the floor. Lift. Drop. Lift. Drop. See?  It’s that simple.

“The lunch times for each grade are very close together. If we were able to clean faster, then we wouldn’t have to worry about the students having to eat on dirty tables,” said Laisy Kleenir.

Not only will using one mop save money and time, it might also boost the business of local Urgent Cares. Of course, a couple of students may feel sick after eating on not perfectly sanitary tables, but medical facilities are experienced with the occasional incident of food poisoning. They will gain more patients and their business income will improve with each e coli outbreak.

“My mom works at an Urgent Care in Fontana and I think it would be wonderful if more people got sick and give my mom a raise in her salary,” said Pepto Cid.
It looks like the method of cleaning the tables and floors with one mop is a win for everyone.
