Had an 18 page fax being transmitted, stepped away from the fax machine to take a phone call, another goes in and without looking at the screen on the fax machine starts sending a fax, thereby canceling the 18 page in mid transmission. Of course some of the pages had stuck together and had been restacked in the fax originally. WTF is up with people not being able to check the status of an office machine before utilizing? Burned me up even more than going to print and finding the printer out of paper, filling with paper and having the end of another's print job print out. WTF, can't they read the printer screen? How about checking the print job to see if it is all there? :bang:

Nope, however folks I know did a while back and that sucked.

Here the silver lining is that the person who carelessly canceled the fax resent and babysat the fax until it was done.

it's these little things that make me crazy at the office. not too long ago, the printer was not working, and after getting it running again, i noticed that it printed out about 10 copies of a document...ok...so if it doesn't print, just keep trying and trying and trying without fixing the problem or asking for help? wtf?

Of course it was, as I did not stand at the machine until the confirmation page printed out. The Screen said sending page 4 when I left the room and from looking at the fax log said sending page 6 on the screen when the person put pages into the machine and started dialing. Had I refused to take the telephone call I could have blocked the person from using the fax machine until the transmission was complete.

Oh no, that cannot be pinned on me when there print job is the one that only partially printed. The proof being when paper is put into the printer the balance of the job prints out!

Oh pardon me, "hey what is going on here?" "Did the previous fax complete sending? Where is the confirmation?" ...."Oh, so can you tell if it finished before you started this one?"..."Alright, we need to resend this one." "Okay thank you, you need to watch it as it feeds in as some of the pages stuck together last time."

That doesn't sound very pissy.
A little bitchy, but not very pissy.
Or were you brandishing a staple gun at the time?

This applies to staplers in common areas only.

Outside: "How come all these staplers are out of staples? Do we have more, or do we need to order some?"

Inside: "Stream of profanity, WTF is wrong with these people that they cannot be bothered to put staples in the staplers when empty? I could get it if it was only one, maybe they have not used it since last staple was stapled, but three of them, no way! More profanity."

No, brandishing, the pissy fit was internal.

I'm kind of jealous that when TEO goes to send a fax, it actually is being sent. Lucky.

Someone keeps stealing my stapler. I've been to the supply closet to get a new stapler three times in the past three weeks to get a new stapler and staples. I will find out who it is and I will staple their fingers together.Just because my new job means that I am not always at my desk does not mean the things on my desk are for anyone to take.

Want to pitch another one? My storage unit flooded. Pretty sure all my tapes are toast. Need to dig out and wash and dry my CDs, my books. Lot of books. What insurance? :lol: :bang: And a broken cassette of miles/santana live is in my trunk. Feeling lucky 'cause nobody's dead or in the hospital and the kitties are fine. My neighbor's gf's dog got out during the storm and drowned. Took a few days to find her. That's a loss. Stuff is ... It sucks, but a lot of it is replaceable. The rest is an opportunity to practice detachment, I guess.

Thanks. All the photo albums from when I was a kid got flooded, too, but i'm not the one who put them in the basement. I'm sure some my crate of notebooks is nice and moist, maybe some pictures gone, too. F it. The best pictures are in my head. They really are. :) <3

My dad has albums, too. Different ones, but I'll scan them.
