Not Very Good At Monitoring The Situation

| Working | March 20, 2014

(I work in an office with older equipment that fails on a regular basis. One morning my computer monitor dies. I inform the morning supervisor and wait for IT to come replace it. Later, the afternoon supervisor arrives.)

Afternoon Supervisor: “Why weren’t you taking calls earlier?”

Me: “My monitor was broken. IT just replaced it a few minutes ago.”

Afternoon Supervisor: “But you didn’t send me an email! Why didn’t you send me an email that your monitor wasn’t working?”

Me: “Because… I had no monitor?”

Coworker: *calls over in high voice* “BECAUSE… SHE… COULD… NOT… SEE… TO… TYPE!”
