Caution: Watch For Falling Office Chairs

You know, there really aren’t that many work hazards in the officeplace.  I suppose you could lacerate your knee on an open desk drawer or maybe scald your tongue on some piping hot office coffee.  Perhaps you could slip on a freshly mopped bathroom floor or shut your fingers up in a copy machine.  Yeah, it’s not exactly the same danger level as say, for instance, a construction site.

But today, in my office, there was a real and present danger to each and every intrepid office worker who innocently ran errands through one particularly hazardous area.  Yes, the threat of being crushed to death under a falling office chair.  The worst imaginable nightmare for all who are cursed to work amongst the cubicles of doom.  Oh, the humanity!

    • It may in fact be a Guinness record for greatest number of office chairs stuffed into a 10×10 space.
