The Current Paying Gig's building management just sent out this little gem:
It is imperative that you do not dispose of cigarette butts within the pit that houses the GAS lines and meter that is located on the XXXXX/YYYYY Street corner of the building!! Use the ashtrays located at the ZZZZZZ Street Entrance. This is not a request-you are putting yourself and the lives of others at risk.
[Street names removed to protect the guilty. Coloring and underlines retained from the original e-mail.]

Just more evidence, I suppose, that nicotine addiction is correlated with lowered levels of cluefulness. (No, I'm not going to imply causation, there. But, seriously, chucking butts into the frigging gas meter?)
