Couple of years ago, when my employer-at-the-time were building new
premises, I walked into the computer room-to-be just as the
electricians were finishing the installation of the Big Red Button.
In their wisdom they had placed it by the door, between the light
switch and the door lock switch.

Fortunately, I was authorized to issue Change Orders, so the
electricians' Orders were Changed *real* quick.
