Vindictive much?

December 19th, 2009 · 105 comments

Writes James in Chesterfield, Virginia: “Poor Fayette didn’t know that you must remove staples before feeding paper into the copier. Even though she is 70 years old and always brings fresh brownies on Fridays for everyone in the office, someone still felt the need to publicly (and anonymously) humiliate her.”

You know, because a simple “the copier is broken” would leave just too many unanswered questions.

Yes, Fayette broke the copier. You will need to place the paper on the glass until the feeder can be repaired.

    Poor Fayette. Those Chesterfield folks can be downright snobby! If she worked in Henrico, she would have been spared the shame…

      Well, considering she’s 70 and still brings in brownies, maybe we’re more strict about spelling than we are about a Gramma-rian who you say’s (c)
      a quart low on self-esteem. Buncha sinna-mental softies’s (p,c) all.

      Good catch on the “z” though…coulda been you bending over with your left hand on the barre rail and your right crossing yourself feverishly as Mistress GG corrects you with the “red pen”.
      Yesterday was commas, today’s “z”s and “s”s.

      Looks to me as though most misspellings go unremarked upon (bluehair as a single word wasn’t even touched by the “anals”), but I’ll bet some folks object to being called douche canoes without provocation…just saying.

      Well, at least you corrected that glaring mistake and let everyone know that you knew it was there.
      That shows that you’re not in any way anal (not that “betcha” and “bunch of” work together really well, but that’s style, not spelling…and you’re a stellar speller!) ;-)

      I think you’ll mostly find that the other commenters get really uppity when you call them douche canoes, Michelle. If you’re just having fun and not being unnecessarily combative or offensive, most typos are going to go uncommented.

      Unless you are making fun of the grammar or spelling of the note and make a mistake yourself. Usually that kind of irony is irresistible.

      I did so miss the comma after “bluehair” (didn’t mention it, nor that “bluehair” should be two words), but that just leaves more of them for me to sprinkle about!

      GG,
      This is starting to sound like the Union Army during the U.S. Civil War. Must they exchange places? Or can they simply buy out with cash?
      And which accounts get credited in such an event?

      You’re certainly embracing your new persona with jazzy verve. The bent over poses do not resemble any human punctuation that I’m familiar with, but I did find myself wondering what the characters on the office workers’ keyboards looked like in the Cronenberg film “Dead Ringers”.

      of Santa’s fundamental weakness, but to that of his wild-life crew.

      If you want to help rid Santa of the karma attached to that ongoing surveillance effort keeping tabs on naughty and nice (at least wrt part of the population) you could leave an assortment of naughty and nice note cards and let Santa know which reindeer use which cards.

      Maybe even get some PAN, um, submissions out of the deal.

      I heard that the seams on the unitard were not holding up so well, due to the variability of the human shape, and that the last person to wear it had to be stapled into it. They would have been sewn in, but there was no sewing kit in the office, and the best that they could come up with was a stapler. The staples were hard to remove, as they had rusted to the fabric.

    But despite the aggravation involved in dropping everything to cancel his fake faxes because the error noise make us all stabby, nobody is out there trying to crush his spirit with misspelled call-out notes, man.

      The staple which caused all the problems has been lovingly, but accusingly, placed and shaped after the ‘you’ to make it ‘your’, to really drive it home just how it was that Fayette happened to break the copier.

      ——- Swipe & Wipes

      I don’t know how to do it here, but put the ‘swiney heineys’ in a circle with a line through it (like the ghostbusters.)

      Then below that it would say something about how they can be used in different ways. You could keep it on the glass like a toilet seat cover , or you could use it to wipe the glass and other areas of machine clean (it’s coated w/ a special anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral )

      We could have a promotion where people could send in security tapes of their skank employees caught using the machine in a lewd way. The top prize would win a year’s supply.
      Oh, and all the winners would receive complimentary boxes of our other products:
      Crab Sacks. (crab in a circle with a line through it.)
      To be used to cover mattresses, pillows, comforters, couches, etc. For people who tend to have skanky people over a lot.
      and for those people who tend to favor the drive-by BJ, we have custom crab sacks for most vehicle makes and models!

      My goodness gracious, PG…is there anything you haven’t thought of?

      Sheesh, now CG’s probably gonna get in here and pour cold water all over this hot marketing campaign, but whatcha-gonna-do, huh ?

      If she lets us run with this, I’m in for the duration and down for the count. If she sez cool it, we probably both need to listen to ‘the voice of reason’.

      But if CG nixes it, we should try to talk her into our selling the whole kit-n-kaboodle to some other company for small cash and a big % royalty.

    First will comes the public humility. Next will come the spitball attacks. Later, the duct taping of her office chair to the ceiling.

      Ah, civilization…

    No, Fayette didn’t really break the copier. If she broke it thoroughly, completely, once and for all, nobody would be putting papers on the glass to make copies, an emergency doctor would be picking glass splinters out of her bum, and we would be seeing a completely different ‘note’, complete with photocopies of body parts, here.

    The brownies tasted funny the following week.
    Thankfully, Fayette didn’t break the toilets.

    How did You get picked for this?
    Merit?
    Lottery?
    Longest commute*?
    Name farthest from Aaron**?
    Penultimate person to break the copier?

    And why hold the paper until the repair is made?
    Copier repair isn’t always a same day affair, y’know…Well, You knows.

    I bet Fayette was the one who took the extra special swingline stapler too! Oh, we have to tell that to Miss Place. She’ll be so pissed…

    Yes, Fayette broke the copier. But at least when Fayette did it, she didn’t break the glass panel from trying to Xerox her buttocks!

    (Though that would be quite the sight!)

      Did Fayette ever break the glass panel of trying to Xerox her buttocks?

      I guess we’ll find out in the sweet by-and-by.

      I guess one thing I’m sure of is that Fayette didn’t move *from* her lowly status through the ceiling *of* glass *by* trying *to* Xerox her buttocks.
      Well, pretty sure…

    Poor Fayette. She now suffers more public humiliation at the hands of James. Now far more people than just a few office employees know that Fayette doesn’t know about the necessity of staple removal because she’s old. Shame on James!

      Wow, susitna, you’re right! I’m the James who posted this. I never thought of the damage I would do to Fayette’s international reputation. Although, Fayette couldn’t even work the copier, so I highly doubt she – or any member of her bridge club – will ever find it.

  • #22   The Copier Guy...

    In my 22 years of being a copier repairman, I most vividly remember being called out to remove a paper jam, only to find a crunched up copy of some guy’s naked hairy buttocks. I gave the copy to the key operator and said, “Good luck finding out who the ass is that jammed the copier.”

    The second worst ‘ass’ incident was being called out to clean up broken glass and blood from a copier that obviously had been sat on. Thankfully I had brought rubber gloves and methyl hydrate.

    Far too many times, I have wanted to leave notes more scathing than this.

    So is it true? now Fayette will be making funny brownies? isn’t that surprise? I mean have you heard that one before?

    • #24.1   infant tyrone bang

      If Fayette has the right ‘spices’ to prepare ‘funny’ brownies, doesn’t that mean it’s possibile that the copier tragedy was based not so much on her being ignorant as it was based on her being as baked as a pan of brownies?
