Tingle table
 n.— «The engineers devised a new, improved Tingle table.…To get a feel for working at a Tingle table, imagine you are a giant at a baseball stadium in Lilliput. As you sit at home plate looking out toward center-field, about 25 trays and sorting slots encircle you—instead of field, loge, mezzanine and bleacher sections. The old Tingle tables are functional enough. But they are cramped, one-size-fits-all desks with sharp edges that elbows and knees hone in on.» —“Ergonomic Improvement Helps Postal Workers on Tax Day” by Mark Schwanhausser in San Jose, California Knight-Ridder Tribune Business News Apr. 16, 1998.
