Re: f-f-f-freezing

It's called the Emergency Heating Power Squat. Directions:

1. Note how you would sit on a toilet, particularly the leg position.
2. Take this position (without the support of a toilet)
3. Hold until your legs are a fiery inferno of heat
4. Repeat as necessary

Caution: This may result in stares in public places.

A NICKEL? Only a nickel? You probably would get maybe a 2° raise for five minutes for that.

Re: f-f-f-freezing

Go home.

Aren't there regulations about minimum office temperatures? This is Switzerland after all.
