Clever little phrase. “On a need-to-know basis,” which originated sometime before WWII and was used in military operations attempting to function covertly. Today the phrase is used as part of our everyday colloquialisms for such benign and fun secretive plans for a surprise birthday or anniversary party. Today’s younger generation may not know that its origins related to the Battle of Normandy and The Trinity Project in the 1940s. Well, I for one am just as happy with our present-day use, and when I heard that phrase recently, while someone was trying to find out if they were getting a surprise birthday party, the part of me that loves spy novels and movies thought of Quick-Seat Chair.
I always love looking at things from different angles. Suppose I said that “knowing where to locate a Quick-Seat Chair in an industrial, retail, medical or outdoor sports setting should be “need to know information.” Not “you’ll get to know when the time is right?” I’ve always thought that were I to enter a large building, like an airport where I have to walk almost a mile to get to my plane, or a hospital where you could probably make it to the other coast before you get to your loved one’s room should be information that is available at the entrance, or on a website. Quick-Seat Chairs are definitely on a (we) need to know basis! After all, we’re not spies on a mission. We’re simply people who sometimes find ourselves with unexpected fatigue or an old injury acting up. Quick-Seat Chairs beg to be found.
We “need to know” that buildings that are open to the public, in whatever capacity, offer this safety and comfort as part of their interior design and there shouldn’t be any secret about it. Years ago, I had a dear friend in an assisted living. The architectural engineer must have never had any exposure to the population of residents, the type of service provided by the staff (nurses, doctors, and other essential staff) or the conditions that may prevent these residents from being as ambulatory as they used to be. For, it never ceased to amaze me that these buildings were laid out very wide with long branches of rooms that were connected to a central hub, like the shape of a crab. All well and good, but when I measured it with a digital map wheel, the distance from one end of the building to the other was one-eighth of a mile. Far too long for friends to visit each other on walkers or using orthopedic canes.
The problem with setting about benches in these corridors was the fact that they would be in the way for moving furniture in or out of rooms, transporting residents to the hospital, and other space-related problems. I often complained, as did the nurses trying to get to people, about the distance. Back then, there were no Quick-Seat Chairs yet invented. But there are now and those old badly designed buildings cause the same problems. Like I’ve said above, Quick-Seat Chairs should be on a “need to know basis” to every assisted living and every other large spaced area that we visit. Maybe I don’t need one, maybe you don’t need one. But someone out there who doesn’t know about Quick-Seat Chairs needs them and to know about them. They need to know that Quick-Seat Chairs exist and have a solution to this problem. Let’s let the secret out and make sure that the secret “Need to know basis” is now open to everyone and so is Quick-Seat Chair.
