Disclaimer: This is *obviously* all in fun. So if anyone from work / school / real life in general should ever happen to stumble upon my blog, please try not to be a little bitch about it.
I am the receptionist at my company. Which basically means I'm the office bitch. I often hear, "Sara, I don't know how to use the copier. Will you do this for me?"
For some stupid reason, the receptionist desk is not located in the same room as the copier and fax machine. My desk is right around the corner, and some other poor woman has to sit in the office with the loud ass fax machine and piece of shit copier.
The woman in that office put post-its above both machines stating what they were. But every single time someone comes in to use either machine, they do the same thing. They walk in and stand in front of both machines. They look up at the post-its located directly above the machines. They turn around and ask, "Which one is the fax and which one is the copier?"
Seriously, people? I realize that life is really difficult without having someone walking next to you, holding your hand, guiding you through the world and all, but COME ON. At least observe your surroundings.
So this has become a running joke in the office between me and the poor, poor soul who is stuck sitting in that room. Every time we hear someone ask which one is the fax and which one is the copier, we just give each other the sad head shake for humanity.
Today, I changed desks and am now sitting in said office. I already knew what my first order of business would be.
My favorite thing about these signs is that I know, in my heart, that they are entirely passive-aggressive. But thanks to a picture of a smiling copier and a few exclamation points, people think I'm just being friendly and helpful.
If I could write how I really felt, I would put, "Look! Over here! How can you not tell this is a copier and that is a fax machine? How do you live in this world and not know that shit?"
Nah, I didn't think so, either.
