IT urine bandit fired and charged
Did that IT guy just pee on my chair? Yes
An IT worker caught on camera urinating on the chairs of female colleagues has turned himself into local police and been charged with criminal offences.
Raymond Charles Foley, 59, was initially dismissed from his IT job at US company Farm Bureau Financial Services after being busted for urinating, in a strange cat like sexual marking technique, on the chairs of co-workers whom he deemed to be attractive.
The WestDesMoinesPatch reported that the suspect turned himself into police.
Farm Bureau Financial Services corporate VP Lauri Strottman, alerted authorities following the company's discovery of who the urine bandit was after an investigation was sparked by employees who had complained about stains on their chairs since October. Farm Bureau had surveillance cameras installed in February to solve the mystery.
The rogue employee was allegedly caught on tape as he urinated on several chairs, causing about US$4,500 in damages.
Strottman said the former employee who worked in the IT department had access to the employee database, which included photos of his coworkers. According to police reports , the suspect admitted to Strottman, "I was doing inappropriate things I shouldn't be doing." The company terminated the man's employment Monday, and he left the premises without incident. ®

Everyone needs a toilet break
But this is taking the piss.
Re: £700 for a decent chair
Not far off.
You can get 'an office chair' for £75. If you're under the age of 40 and/or intend to make other people sit on it then it might suffice. For six months to a year at least.
You can get 'an office chair' for £150. If you're under the age of 40 and/or intend to make other people sit on it then it might suffice. Could last a couple of years.
*But* if you're 40 or over and intend to sit in the seat yourself then anything less than £400 is a poor choice. £700 quid for a chair that someone of advancing age has to sit on for eight hours, five days a week is a worthwhile investment. In my opinion no-one over the age of 40 should be required to sit in a chair that can't be independently adjusted for height,pan depth/tilt,back tilt,lumbar and arm rests. You don't get chairs that offer all that without spending some serious money.
I would also suggest that anyone over the age of 40 should be offered a free ergonomic assessment every couple of years. A really far-seeing employer would do that at 30 and consider upgrading the seat if appropriate. Sitting is not 'restful'. It's surprisingly stressful on the human body and 'any old chair' is injurious to your health.
P.S.:I'm not an ergonomics expert nor office furniture salesman. I'm just a 45 year-old whose body won't tolerate sub-standard seating any longer without aching.
