Not much of a rant, but…
Look. It’s hot. We’re on the verge of a power emergency. So will you please shut the doors?
My workplace has a problem with one of the air conditioners that makes the others work harder. Blowers are on full power. This causes an overpressure in the buildings. The doors, which are supposed to be locked for security, are not closing. I know that you’re busy or your mind is elsewhere, but does it really not occur to you to check to see that the door is closed? It only takes a couple of seconds.
And Mr./Ms. Security Guard. I know you’re supposed to keep an eye on the gate. But it has the same atmospheric pressure on both sides and is made of bars. It closes itself. Why not stand over by the two exit doors and close them for the the business people. Many of us apparently are not able to do it ourselves, and you still have line of sight and only a short distance to the gate.
And Facilities Manager: Maybe a little sign reminding people to ensure the doors are closed would be a nice thing?
We need to conserve power. Especially large corporations that use a lot of power. It’s for the good of everyone. And it will help EBIT. (I do want to have a bonus next year, and I’ll bet you do as well.)
