How Many Princeton University Facilities Does It Take to Screw In A Lightbulb?

Today, I got a message in my inactive "" email account from Princeton University Facilities, giving me an update on a job order I had requested. Call me high-maintenance, but I am not 100% satisfied with the length of time it took them to change one lightbulb.


This email is to confirm that your ticket has been marked as complete. The details of the request were:

Reported Date: Sat Sep 27 14:50:51 EDT 2008

Location: Patton Hall
Description: Light bulb out on 4th floor laundry room, entryway 4/5.

If this request has not been completed to your satisfaction, please reply to this message (leaving the subject line intact) or call the Facilities Service Center at 609-258-8000.

Thank you,
Princeton University Facilities


No, thank you Princeton University Facilities. Now I can FINALLY do my laundry after the sun goes down without having to blindly grope around a washing machine/dryer in a pitch-black windowless room for half an hour! Actually, I don't have to do that now, nor have I had to do that in about a year. Even the laundry rooms in Thailand have lightbulbs now. Or, wherever I soap-rinsed in my portable basin, I would make sure it was light.

Either way, I graduated like 15 months ago.
