Thinking Outside The Box Of Common Sense

| Working | February 2, 2015

Colleague: “[My Name], did those archive boxes you ordered arrive?”

Me: “Yep, they’re on the fourth floor just outside the lifts.”

(Two minutes later, she’s back with a bundle of flat-packed boxes.)

Colleague: “When I’m done with these do I put the ones I don’t need in the photocopying room?”

Me: “No, there’s no space in there for them. Just drop them back upstairs with the rest. The guys up there will need them.”

Colleague: “But I only need two boxes, and I don’t want to have to bring the rest back upstairs!”

Me: “If you only need two boxes, why did you grab ten of them?”

Colleague: *angrily* “Well, I don’t know!”

Me: “Neither do I, so put them back where you found them and don’t snap at me because you can’t use your head.”
