In the dark

Since a couple of weeks there's a sheet hanging up in all the toilets in our office:

"These toilets are equipped with CFLs so it's better to leave the light on all day".


I suppose they fear the lifespan of CFLs is shortened if you flip it on and out all the time. And yet that message feels so wrong. How can leaving the light on all day be a good solution to anything?

Did they also ask you not to flush the toilets? Because maybe that would also make them last longer... ;-)

@Betsy: oh gosh, don't give them any ideas. They are nibbling on the silliest things first to make minimal cost savings.
