My Nightmare Come to Life-Compacting Shelving

When I first worked at University of Florida (also was an undergrad) I was a file clerk laboring in hand-cranked compact shelving--No safety devices to prevent someone from not seeing me and cranking away. I had a dream about it back then where my eyes bulged out of my head as someone cranked away and I was between shelves.
At a meeting this a.m. there were multiple warnings about compact shelving shorting out and the safety measures not kicking in when someone is in the shelving. They kept mentioning even more precautions to take and it got ridiculous. Then a colleague mentioned roaming killer rats and I had to make that happen. Doodle isn't super great since the head boss was kind of watching.
