    Office space

    I live this movie:

    1. I have to work on most Saturdays

    2. "ever since I started working here, every day of my life has been worse than the one before. That means, any time you see me, that's the worst day of my life."

    3. just got a memo saying we are using new cover sheets on all our documents

    4. "Why does it say there is a paper jam when there is no paper jam!"

    5. not that long ago I had 4 bosses.

    Funny funny movie. It's hard to find something nice and unique these days, where everything's a sequel or comic book re-make.

    Welcome to the modern prison. There's no bars, no guards, but you can never leave. Welcome to cubicle hell.

    Just as I finished reading this your avatar spazzed. I found it both appropriate and amusing.

    Hilarity.



    Why should I be the one to change? He's the one who sucks.

    Instead of TPS reports, I submit brainless RFO reports for outages that don't matter.

    Also, I have 3 bosses.

    I have a red swingline stapler.

    Sometimes I play tetris.

    This stupid company has me doing RECYCLING. I offered to do it for "a couple weeks" and they would be making me do it this week had I not refused.

    This is the rest of my life, yay.

    We used to have cubicles, but the boss(es) decided that led to isolationism, so we got rid of all the walls. Now, I sit in a huge room with desks spaced every 8 feet and 10 other people. It's outstanding.

    To make it better, we have a guy in here that actually is Milton. Really. He mumbles to him self a lot, always shows up for cake when we have birthday celebrations, and covets his office supplies. A sad little man.

    One of my favorite scenes:

    "I don't like my job, and I don't think I'm gonna go anymore."
    "You're just not gonna go?"
    "Yeah."
    "Won't you get fired?"
    "I don't know. But I really don't like it, and I'm not gonna go."
    "So you gonna quit?"
    "Nu-uh, not really. I'm just gonna stop going."
    "When did you decide all of that?"
    "'Bout an hour ago."
    "So you gonna get another job?"
    "I don't think I'd like another job."
    "Well what are you gonna do about money and bills and..."
    "You know I've never really liked paying bills. I don't think I'm gonna do that either."

    I worked in a printer company.

    I can tell you all about the non-existant paper jams. I had an oki microline printer that 'jammed' after every page, so I had to open and close the stupid paper tray. Now this is fine if you're printing one page, but I had to print literally thousands of pages on that thing a month. Let's just say my coworkers got used to me sitting on the floor and slamming the printer tray open and closed.

    There was also the wonderful printer that decided that it didn't like switching languages (PS, PDF, XL, PCL) and decided to print out what the code said in ASCII rather than actually doing what it said...

    ...and then our code, which was potentially the worst, as it was all being tested by me and made all sorts of visual screw-ups.

    Oh, and the giant $15k Canon monster that decided that a 'cancel job' button wouldn't be cool enough. It had to have a Japanese web-based system of job queing meaning that you had to go onto a Japanese computer, wade through a load of menus to cancel a job, which of course was entirely indistinguishable from the rest, and then go and reset the printer (3 minute bootup) about 5 times to actually get it to stop printing.

    God I loved that job.

    That's why I'd rather deal with elementary school kids. Sure they drip snot out of their noses like its they're job, but at least they don't (usually) have imaginary paper jams. I asked for a printer to smash when I left the company, and I would have gotten one if I had stayed for about 3 months 'til the end of that project. 'tis a sad sad world.
