Corporate Wind Tunnels

I’ve been tied up in meetings all day, but I wanted to share an interesting effect that I’ve noticed in our building recently: corporate wind tunnels.
Our building is laid out in several wings, each of which is served by a separate HVAC unit and separate air exchangers, all of which are in varying states of decrepitude. However, one of the wings had one of their air handlers serviced recently, meaning that it’s pulling more than its weight and is, consequently, creating a pressure differential in the wing it handles. This has the extremely odd side effect of causing a very, very stiff breeze in its entryway, which is directly adjacent to the primary men’s room on the floor. It’s funny to see colleague after colleague emerge from the restroom, only to be buffeted by a strong, artificial wind.
And yes, I’m easily amused.
