When I was in school, I worked summers at a government physics lab in Batavia, Illinois. The physicists there had a problem that they'd be close to solving the mysteries of the universe in a blackboard discussion, leave for the evening with a big "DO NOT ERASE" on the board, and come back in the morning to a sparkling clean blackboard.

They discovered that the solution was to write "NO TOCAR" instead of "DO NOT ERASE". [Linked Image]

Perhaps "No storage in this room" is not being understood by those responsible for finding a place to stash that stuff?

There are a few general observations about places like this one:

- Management obviously isn't doing its' job;

- Architects always neglect space for storage, support, and maintenance purposes; and,

- The most importatn "utility" is the trash colector!

It has nothing to do with the language being used. A "person of clout" with a [Linked Image] "Get this &%$ out of here" can get the point across regardless of any language barrier [Linked Image]

I don't think it has much to do with the architect's own ideas either

It's all about the attitudes of the owners and the management, and $$$

Why would a building owner want to build an area with storage space when it can fetch a much higher lease rate by simply throwing some carpet on the floor, data/comm and power, and calling it office space?

We had a rail-head/store magazine containing many tons of HE. The 3 guys in there improvised an illegal secret camouflaged greenhouse in the glazed clerestory roof. All that summer, wonderful free fresh salads descended to the canteen- I ate some regularly, unwittingly implicated in the plot- I was told the stuff was excess from someone's garden. They had a secret ladder and watered it all from the fire hydrant. Eventually, a Safety Dept. guy saw tomato plants in grow-bags out of the window of a outbound factory double-decker bus one evening and the game was up! I sentenced them to a severe reprimand, (inwardly trying desperately not to laugh), the lowest possible sanction, and got my reward - one of the guy's wives was our Cook, and I got 2 rounds of free toast at breakfast for the rest of my stint there.
Actually, it turned out to be the loaf-ends, which usually went in the trash, but the thought was there!

Around here a simple phone call to Fire Marshall would get that room clear quick.
