When plumbing fails

What happens when a high-tech urinal crashes? It no longer flushes, but it does flash an indicator light and occasionally beeps. No, it was not made by Microsoft.

The beep sound occurs only about once every ten seconds. This is a long enough interval that you aren’t really sure you heard a beep, but frequent enough that it will annoy you if you think to use the restroom as a place to take a nap away from coworkers. Curse you, beep!

Something else you can’t help but notice: nobody seems to know what to do with a crashed urinal. Should you call a plumber? Should you call the computer help desk? Should you bring in a systems analyst? An electrical engineer?

Nobody seems to know.
