Jagoffs at the office

Today’s post is something that happened n EVERY work place pre-covid!

You know what was like…you went to the work photocopier, located in that little secret room, put in your special secret departmental code that nobody else is supposed to know (but literally everyone but the new hire knew) and you started to photocopy some VERY important work documents.

You put your originals in the feeder, press ___ (The number of copies you need for your co-workers, neighbors and relatives), the START COPY button and then the infamous JAM icon lit upand the machine started to beep…. beep, beep….beep…. beep, beep…. and you started to SWEAT!!!

(beep…. beep, beep….beep…. beep, beep….)

(Oh God!!! I hope nobody walks in right now!)

(beep…. beep, beep….beep…. beep, beep….)

The person BEFORE you left papers jammed all through the copier.. and didn’t take the time to read the simple directions, “Lift Handle, Open Latch A, Pull Lever B,  Remove Page!!!”  How hard can it be???? SHEESH!!!!

Hey Phil-The-Photocopy-Phreak… you may not be one of those dudes that shows up with a short-sleeve dress shirt with a tie, hush-puppies, a briefcase full of Hannibal-Lecter-type tools and inked stained hands but, we’re sure you can read simple directions!!!!

How about, when we get back to work, BEFORE you try photocopying, the weekend football poll numbers, a new cabbage soup loose-30lbs-in-30-seconds-without-exercise diet recipe, your bum (at the office Holiday Party), a stack of jokes (since you’re email is monitored) or the recipe for that yummy new snack Margie in Accounting made for today’s work Steelers Party….. you take 12.5 seconds out of your busy @#@#$*@ day to FIX the paper jam, Ya Jagoff!!!!!!
