Paper Trail Fail Meets Laptop Flop

, , , , | Working | June 6, 2019

(Over the office instant messaging system:)

Coworker: “My laptop is very big and heavy. Can I get a new one that is smaller?”  

Me: “Sure thing! I just need your manager to send me an email requesting it, so that we have the paper trail in case the expense gets challenged.”

Coworker: “Really? Wow. That’s so much work. I’ll just keep the laptop I have now.”

Me: “O… kay… Have a nice afternoon?”

(Still not sure what part of requesting your manager to send me a single email qualifies as “so much work.”)
