At Seattle City Hall there are rules.
No weapons, no animals, no loitering, no alcohol, no lying down, no smoking, no music, no fighting, no trespassing.
Could the next thing be no microwave popcorn?
“It can be a significant problem in the future,” says Seattle Facilities Director Pedro Vasquez.
The City Facilities Department has just issued a memo to all City employees.
SUBJECT: Burnt microwave popcorn.
The Justice Center has been evacuated eight times in three years, forcing the evacuation of more than 400 people. If the problem continues, it will result in a ban of all microwave popcorn.
