Complaint Button

"Complaint Button" is a simple automata designed to discourage complaining. Pressing the button reinforces the unofficial "no complaining in my office" rule, in a "forceful" yet whimsical manner. This model is not recommended at all for the youngsters!

Inspiration for Complaint Button occurred awhile back when my wife and I visited the Paul Boyer Museum of Animated Carvings (http://www.kansastravel.org/boyergallery.htm). Mr. Boyer has created some absolutely stunning and complex automata. Yet sitting on the counter by the entrance to the museum was a simple automata, casually inviting anyone to press the button located on the top. I couldn't resist so I pressed the button, and that's why I designed Complaint Button. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the museum, and highly recommend taking the slight detour north of I-70 in Kansas to visit this small yet wonderful museum displaying his extraordinary craftsmanship.

As usual, I probably forgot a file or two or who knows what else, so if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask as I do make mistakes in plenty.
