Okay it might seem like I kvetch a lot but my school is one of those schools. We have a bit of a problem with the lamps in our auditorium burning out because they are on for such a long amount of time. Every time one burns out the studyhall monitors complain to me that the auditorium is too dark and that I need to do something about it, and so I remind them that it is not my fault that the lights are burning out and that they need to file a request to have them replaced. Naturally their response is "Well why can't you do it?", which usually sends me up to 30,000 feet because of their sheer lazyness. I've sat down and talked with Admins on a regular basis reminding them of the importance of shutting the lights off when the area is not in use, a former tech from my school went as far as calculating power consumption and the cost of said consumption, and I stress that too. No matter how I put it they seem to be unable to get it into their thick skulls that if they want the lamps to last longer they have to turn them off when they dont use them.
