Well guys, it finally happened. We got new copiers/printers at work and everything is NEW and CONFUSING and even though dumb Printer 39 shat the bed all the time, at least we all knew how to use it.
I actually got a headache today from all of the NEW THINGS hullabaloo and I rarely get headaches! Ugh, learning new things is dumb.
The one highlight of the day though was when the Ricoh lady was hanging around, waiting for the next training session to start, when she noticed the Wall of Glenns next to her. “Oh, who’s the artist?” she asked and I nearly choked on my tongue in my effort to be the first to let her know that–ME! ME! ‘Tis I! Right here! And then I explained to her what the RIP Glenns were all about and she laughed and said, “These are really funny! Patty Duke, haha” and I was so fucking smug because those dumb Glenns are basically the best work I’ve ever done in this place.
I was telling Glenn about it later and he said, “That’s why you have a headache, from your head expanding.”
Before I had my training, I was complaining about “HOW AM I GOING TO PRINT MY LABELS!?” just as one of the Ricoh guys (the one with a beautiful maybe-Australian accent and not deep-Texan like Ethan suggested) just happened to be walking by, stopped in his tracks and said, “I can help you with that.”
AND HE DID AND IT WAS SUPER INTIMATE.
Maybe that’s when my headache started….
Amber2 basically threw a fit when she came in and saw that her desk printer was gone, just want to put that out there. She eventually calmed down, though.
I tried to imagine what today would have been like if BARB still worked here and I had to stop thinking about it because it was making my head hurt even more.
Then Sandy found out that I know how to scan on this new machine and I walked in on her offering up my scanning services to Bridget and I was just like, “Ugh Sandy, stop reminding people that I know how to do basic admin things.”
Everything sucks and is stupid, but one of the machines makes colored copies so this could really elevate the ‘ZINE to new heights.
Now I have to go and make a RIP Glenn for the old printer. :( It’s just all too much to handle on a Monday.
