Keys live upstairs behind the “Employees Only” divider (always return them upstairs when you're done!)
The "house" key on the whale tail key chain will get you in.
Confirm that the Defiant Surge protector behind Whisper Room (between back wall of the booth and the break room) is plugged in and turned on.
It’s a good idea to shut the door the the break room.
There are two lamps inside the Whisper Room. The switches for both are button-style, halfway down the cord. Push the switches to turn on/off.
