On flickering lights in the women's restroom

WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE LOSING YOUR MIND, YOU REALLY AREN'T.

There seem to be lots of issues with the bathrooms.


INFORMATIONAL UPDATE

(1 / 2)


	FOR THOSE OF YOU THAT USE THE WOMEN'S RESTROOM BY THE SHOWERS
AND HAVE EXPERIENCED THE THRILL OF THE DARKNESS AND/OR FLICKERING LIGHTS,
THERE IS NO NEED TO WORRY. DON, THE ELECTRICIAN, ASSURED ME THAT IT IS NOT
SUPPOSED TO DO THAT, AND THAT HE WOULD FIX IT.
	IN THE MEANTIME , THOUGH, I HAVE DISCOVERED A FEW HELPFUL HINTS
THAT WILL MAKE YOUR STAY MORE COMFORTABLE;
	1. WHEN YOU THINK YOU ARE LOSING YOUR MIND, YOU REALLY AREN'T.
	   THE LIGHTS REALLY ARE FLICKERING. JUST STAY CALM.
	2. WHEN THE LIGHTS GO OUT COMPLETELY, SMALL MOTIONS LIKE TRYING TO
	   BREATHE OR REACHING OUT NERVOUSLY DON'T ACTIVATE THE MOTION 
	   SENSOR. YOU NEED TO FLAIL YOUR ARMS ABOVE YOUR HEAD AS THOUGH 
	   YOU WERE DIRECTING A RUNAWAY PLANE. THEN THE LIGHTS USUALLY 
	   COME BACK ON. YOU CAN TEST THIS ANYTIME BY TRYING DIFFERENT
	   MOVEMENTS AND WATCHING THE RED LED MOTION INDICATOR ON THE
	   UNIT.
	WELL, I HOPE THIS HELPS. I CAN'T TALK LONG BECAUSE I AM VERY BUSY
TRYING TO GET THE CONTRACT TO SUPPLY STARTER/BALLASTS.

P.S. THIS IS THE MOST FUN WE'VE HAD ON JUNK MAIL IN A LONG TIME! THANKS!

NEVERMIND, IT APPEARS TO BE FIXED NOW
