    I think there's details missing - it's important we all know how the chair was broken. Did someone lose it in a particularly vexing meeting and smash it on the table?

    I suspect that the recent popularity of "standing meetings" is to reduce the frequency of chairs being smashed.

    I prefer my communiqués to be more direct than a mere scolding email:

    I once worked in a library that had French windows leading out to the gardens, little pond and all that sort of thing, BUT in the event of a fire, I and anyone in the library apparently were supposed to go out of the door and go something like 200 metres along a corridor and exit by the "proper" door, probably as part of a crowd of people all trying to exit. The useful French windows about 6 metres from my desk were not an official exit, you see. :hmm: Sod that for a game of soldiers.

    I really detest the phrase "out of bounds". It always feels to me like a challenge that requires to be met :)

    you wouldn't want to meet this challenge. there are good practical and indeed olfactory reasons not to go near it until it's been cleaned up.

    Some fucker keeps leaving their used teabag in the kitchen sink. First up against the wall come the revolution.

    So-called exiters are so much worse than actual ones. Non-committal wankers.

    is this in any way related to the poor storage of potentially toxic chemicals in your earlier post?

    Hmmm, it may be a fire exit, but it would also need to be protected during fire drills etc.

    I was fire warden on the top occupied floor of an office block. Which meant I was almost always "last out" - during one fire drill, myself and two other fire wardens intercepted some local yokels taking advantage that these open doors were not supervised. We reclaimed several wallets, purses and handbags. The local coppers were "amused" to be handed the miscreants. What was worse was that missing items had happened previously during fire drills ...
    The local fire evacuation instructions and assembly points were suitably revised !

    Not a bad scam, that. I'm off to see what I can find out about fire drill schedules in nearby office blocks...
