Don't even think about changing a light globe. In Central Park, it used to take several days to get a flickering light fixed.

Geez the guy has just been in to 'fix' the door and apparently the way to fix it is to stick the handle back on with masking tape. He didn't even wrap the tape around the door end so it'll probably come of again in a couple of days. Amazing what industries an arts degree will get you into these days.

Richard - only days? I pulled a flickering fluoro out myself, and reported it to the facilities managers, because the flicker was driving me nuts. 4 months later one of the contract sparkies wanders past and asks if I'd like a new one, because the old one's still sitting on my desk.

We sometimes went for months at Paladin without some working globes even though the light inspector (Bachelor of Light Inspecting?) did a wander around once a month.

Not sure how it works at your house but I can ignore a home job for quite some time, if Fizzyred lets me get away with it

So, 20 minutes at the most? :)

Actually it turns out our door hasn't been fixed. The girl who told me not to fix it was the one who put the tape over the handle.

You should add more tape to it, every hour until it is fixed.

We'd run out of tape and we lack the ability to raise funds to buy any more.

Have a petition in the building to raise funds for more tape.
