    Default How stupid is this...

    We have recently had some sensors put in the toilets at work which turn the lights on when they sense movement.

    Excellent idea right? Means the lights are only on when someone is in the loo. Good idea, but installed by muppets!

    You see, when you got to the toilets you go through one door, then immediately through a second into the actual toilets.

    Now the sensor for the lights is inbetween these two doors.

    So you go into the loo, open the first door, sensor picks you up and turns the lights on, you go through the second door into the toilets to do your "business"

    Here's the stupid bit, when the second door closes behind you, the sensor can no longer see you. We've timed how long the lights stay on for and its 3 minutes. So if you go in for a "session" the lights turn off and because there are no windows in there, it goes pitch black, as in you can't see your hand in front of your face!

    So basically, you can go to the loo in the light as long as your quicker than 3 minutes!

    Oh dear, forward planning there by the installers! lol

    You'll have to wedge the second door open and keep waving at the sensor every three minutes from your throne!
