This is an actual e-mail from the Corporate home office, with emphasis by me:
We are having problems with coffee machines not being turned off at the end of
the work day. This creates a potential fire hazard which would affect business operations. I have instructed the facilities team that when they do their daily 4:30 pm garbage pickup they are to shut off all coffee machines at that time. If, anyone decides to work pass the business hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and uses a coffee machine - that employee must ensure all coffee machines are turned off before exiting the facility.
Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.
The concern for the business operations is admirable (to hell with the health of anyone in a burning building).
