I was punched in the nose/eye once. Didn't break my nose, but my eye puffed up when I blew my nose. The nose wasn't aligned correctly (still isn't

One of my coworkers investigated a complaint last Monday. Someone said there was human poop on a pristine beach in a remote part of the island.

I wanted to show the monitoring section what turtle turds look like since they also get these complaints, but they were all squicked out. "Get that out of my cubby!" "Hey, I'm eating
