Your Wait Time In Pieces

| Working | February 10, 2016

(I’m the stupid coworker in this story. I sit one cubicle down from the office printer. On this day, it is down and a gentleman is fixing it. He is literally standing 5 feet from where I was all morning. We had even talked about the printer being broken. I select a document to print, stand up, and walk next to the printer.)

Repairman: “Need anything?”

Me: “No, thanks, I’m good. Just waiting for my report to print.”

(At this point, the machine was open, parts were laid out on towels all around it and the gentleman was sitting on the floor working.)

Repairman: “I think you’re going to have to wait a while.”

Me: “Should be coming out any minute. It sometimes takes a while.”

(The repairman just stared at me until I realized what was happening, much to the amusement of my neighboring coworkers.)
