That "Intelligent Buildings" may be environmentally friendly but they aren't employee-friendly :eek: Having to wear gloves to work because of the cold INSIDE the office was quite common back in draughty old UK police stations, but in BRISBANE? :scaredhair:

Do you not, like, work in a satellite on the moon or summink? :blink:

Feels like it sometimes, new building looks like something out of the space age. We're on a mission to see how quick we can trash it into something liveable! :D

Its certainly not a friendly place to work,the whole building has a strange feeling about it.
Talking to one of our security guys the other day and he says that back in the days of the last century when Brisbane was full of unsavoury characters (more so than now!) they just used to bump each other off and dump the bodies on the rubbish heaps on the edge of town. In those days Kedron WAS the edge of town, and the building has been constructed on the site of one of those rubbish dumps. Explains the ghosts I've felt in the old building since the construction work got under way, and could explain why the new one has such a bad feeling about it........I bet there's a few unsettled spirits out there :scaredhair:

The Premier is supposed to be officially opening it tomorrow - my day off (thank you God) and apparently people are booking sickies faster than they have ever been booked before :rofl:
