Sparkperson vs. S.P.A.M. (actual workplace conversation)
Friday, January 11, 2013
Me (SparkPerson): Hi Nancy!
Nancy the Super-Proactive Administrative Manager (SPAM): Are the printers on the second floor broken?
SparkPerson: I don’t know.
SPAM: Jammed? Out of paper or toner?
SparkPerson: Uh, I don’t know. I don’t use the second floor printers.
SPAM: But you’re here on the 1st floor using the West Wing Printer.
SparkPerson: Yeah, I send all my printouts down here.
SPAM: I can fix that for you so your printouts go to the printer near your desk.
SparkPerson: That’s okay. I intentionally set it to print down here.
SPAM: You walk past 3 working printers and take the stairs down here?
SparkPerson: So I walk more steps.
SPAM: And now you’re going back upstairs.
SPAM: You want me to hold the elevator for you?
SparkPerson: Na, I’m good.
