Do they chain the chairs to the floor in your Job Centre? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I was at the Job Centre a few days ago and while I was there a fight broke out because a man had missed two of his appointments (presumably because he'd been on benders the night before; let's just say he didn't look like the kind of man who'd had to fly to Paris for a meeting at short notice), and the lady wouldn't see him and so the security guards had to escort him from the premises. Anyway after he'd gone, I heard the receptionist say that this was why they had to stick the chairs to the floor, otherwise heaven knows what would have happened.

    Do they chain the chairs to the floor in yours, or is it just at mine?

    Really dont care.

    Is this really worth a thread? I'm not sure what information you'll gain by asking Apart from 'yes they do', 'no they don't' answers.

    They don't. Mine is a bit weird, it's full of dodgy people and security guards but all the people you see to sign on or get TIS are really friendly and nice. I feel sorry for them having to deal with the people in there.

    They don't in mine. It's quite a nice one really, bar a few condescending staff.

    :rofl: That's pretty funny.
