Paper Jam?

Today was a classic day to say "Why is there a paper jam when there is no paperjam?". It took about 3 of us looking at this hp printer looking for paper. We pretty much opened it up peice by peice and put together and it still didnt work. I finnaly pulled out the ol spray gun and shot it with a bunch of compressed air. Shazam! it worked.. dont ask me why but i guess there was a lot of dirt.. as much as a sheet of paper.. They need to make printers smart enough to let me know its a dirt jam not a paper jam!

Happy Hour?

So the office went on a happy hour cruisade. I think a lot of people in the office like to drink haha. We left work a little early and went to humperdinks. I guess it was a team building exercise or something. It was funny watching how awkward everyone was in the beginning. Its so weird drinking around the president of the company. The only problem is the receptionist didnt come.. I was waiting to see her try and find a man for the night. She was wearing the right clothes, you know the ones that let stuff fall out. I bailed after the first 30min so we will see what happened next when I get in the office.

A serious matter on a different topic

The past week or so I've started realizing how attached people grow with their pets. It's interesting to see how a person's life changes when they introduce a pet into their lives and how it affects them through out. I got a cat named Shelty when I was about 5 years old. I'm currently 21 so she's spent a long time with me. People have many different pets for many years and grow a type of bond with them. My cat is currently facing kidney failure and old age. It's hard to tell how long shes gonna make it because shes been fighting for 2 years. The doctors told us she was only going to make it a few months and that was 2 years ago... She's gotten to the point where she wont eat and we have to hand feed her and she walks around very dazed, meowing randomly and seems to be confused. It saddens me to see her like that. She almost seems to be lonley and scared trying to find someone to be with incause she passes away. It hasn't hit me yet but I know when she does I'm going to have a pretty hard time getting over it. I find it interesting to think about how many people out there have pets and would be sad to loose them. Human and animal alike seem to have a very keen sence to bonding and lovingness. This goes out to all you animal lovers, give your pet an extra loving touch incause they are taken someday.

there back!

Well the Bosses are back in from their vacation. Was a lot less stressful without them but I'm already seeing the difference in everyone. The receptionist was talking about how bad she needed a man and all this sexual mumbo jumbo while being very un cooroperative and annoying. Now shes back to her fake nice perky self. They ended up bringing me a pen from India... This is a nice gesture and i know they are trying to tell me, I've been thinking about what I can rag on you about now bahaha... I guess i have to get back on top of my responsibilities, no more goofin off... They still havn't asked me about the faces I made to the camera's... I wonder what they are planning... gulp.

Got a few psycho's loose?


Our Reseptionist is at it again. For any of you men who like 40 yr old women you should look her up. She was talking about how she needs a man again. It gets old to hear and kind of annoying. I'm sure she hasnt been laid in a few years so keep that in mind people, shes gonna go wild! I was having a conversation with our shipping guy today and we were discussing how it would be nice to be rich. I told him if he was a millionare he should drive the forklift off the dock for laughs. He said "Heck no man I would go on a old man spree, running through walls and windows and everything else.. Now can you picture an older man with grey hair, beard, glasses on a fork lift going mad crazy? haha.. Id still love to see him drive it off the dock though...

What wrong with my coffee?

Latley everyones been needing a few cups of coffee. I'm not much of a coffee drinker. My solution for my coffee is a cup of ramen noodles. The whole office makes fun of me. Whats wrong with my coffee?! Anyways the CSR has figured out the reason for the ramen noodles to be so cheap. He belives that the company who produced them spelled Roman wrong and it caused a huge drop in price because they arn't the right brand name. Go figure? (And yes this is just a joke, I know its not the case.)

they can see me?

Ugh so now we got cameras in the office! Now I feel like someone is watcing my back all the time! It gets annoying to walk down the hall and notice black spheres around the office. I walked by one of the cameras and looked directly at it and started making funny faces at it. I wonder if they will see it. Haha hope I dont loose my job!

tripping

Another busy day at the office. The day is cold and im getting sick. I've been given a crazy amount of work to do... I guess they believe in me! All of a sudden I trip over nothing. I look around and make sure no one saw what happend.. Good no one did. Now our reseptionist walks by and trips over the exact same air that I did. I went in the back to talk to the shipping guy who was busy as well. I was walking and talking and all of a sudden he tripped over cardboard. Time goes on and on and about everyone in the office ends up tripping over something or nothing. I'm guessing the tripping bug was out. At least his friend the falling fairy was sleeping or we would of all been in trouble.

off subject part 2

Another weekend with the girlfriend. We went to the fair on friday and it was alright. We had to invite one of her girlfriends so they could have their "hang out" time. Did I mention her friend has a kid(shes 20)? Shes one of those MILF'S i guess. I realized that I'm not up for kids any time soon.. if not when im OLD! We went there for about 3 hours and I only spent 20 dollars, which is the only good reason for the kid. We ended up running after him and tyring to keep an eye on him while his mom went and did her thing. It was kinda irratating and I didnt get to spend this time with the person I wanted to. So for all you females out there who want kids at a young age. STOP! It takes away quality time!!
