Wireless, Clueless, Hopeless, Part 41

, , , , | Working | September 3, 2020

I work for a VERY small charity doing administrative work. Since I have a background in computers, I’m also the tech guy. One day during a staff meeting — read: all four of us — I get to have this conversation:

Coworker: “My new desk is great, but there are too many wires and they get tangled up.”

Boss: “[My Name], what can we do about that?”

Me: “Not much, unfortunately.”

Coworker: “Can’t I at least get a wireless printer? That would help!”

Boss: “See? Why didn’t you think of that?”

Me: “A… You already have a wireless printer.”

Coworker: “No, I don’t.”

Me: “Yes, you do. I set it up myself.”

Coworker: “No, there’s this cable that keeps getting stuck behind the filing cabinet.”

Me: “What cable? Wait, do you mean the power cord?”

Coworker: “Yes! It’s very annoying.”

Me: “You want a printer that doesn’t have a power cord?”

Coworker: “Yes! Wireless!”

We reworked some of her space, but sadly, I was never able to find her a printer that doesn’t need power.
