You know what really pisses me off?


People who print a three hundred page document, and inevitably run out of paper.

Only they never feel the need to check on their mamoth document, so an hour later when you print your one pager, the machine is blinking “OUT OF PAPER”

And you innocently feed it paper, only to realize that it is still printing page 220…..and you like a fool have no idea it has eighty pages to go…

Grrr.


Worst is when you see the 300 page document there a week later.

If after printing, no one collects it within 1/2 hour, I bin it. Seriously.

The best part of being an IT geek, I can control the printers... :-)

I once printed out an, ahem, less than respectable picture at work. Like a smart guy, I intercepted it immediately so that no one else would see it. But like a dumbass, however, I had the number of copies set to 25 from a previous job and only retrieved the first one. And of course my network ID was printed on the top of every one.

Lol @blogportland.

I try to avoid printing unless I absolutely have to. That is my gift to the planet. When you see me in my SUV I don't wanna hear about it.

Was the document printed by Agent Cat or Agent Mouse?

Hmmm... so you have to separate your tea bag from your cup, but someone else can print a 300 page document and not pick it up??? Shame!

Where I'm working at the moment, scripts are revised every few days, and every time they send out an electronic version AND print it out on different coloured paper to distribute to everyone in the production office . So not only is an entire forest of trees somewhere in south america or asia disappearing for a tv show, but my email inbox is filled up with outdated versions of things every single day...

Oh, and did I mention they have no recycling whatsoever??? sigh
