Frustrated Bureaucrat Turns to Graffiti
After laughing at this recent addition to the Out of Order sign, I realized I've walked past this machine every day for the past four months and thought the same thing as the graffiti writer each time -- yet had never taken action on it. I felt somewhat disappointed by my own inertia. Granted it's pretty far down the spectrum, but I don't think it's all that different in spirit from watching a man get hit by a car and doing nothing.
The main obstacle to getting things accomplished always seems to be accountability. There's no contact number to call on the vending machine itself and no one on-site that I know of to talk to about improvements. The best I could do was send an inquiry through the "Ask FSI" intranet page to point out the problem and find out who's in charge. Seeing as those Navajo Jewelry 2 cent "Make Up Stamps" were last printed in 2005, it seems about time.
