Photo Copier Jagoffs at Work!

We have had only a handful of “Work Jagoffs” posted here since we started.  My two favorites are, “The Secret Work Poop Shoes” and the “Free Hot Dog Lunch Hot Dog Hog.”

Today’s post is something that happens in EVERY work place and finally I have one to post!  Here is the tweet that accompanied the pic of the photocopier:

“6 – how many pages some #jagoff left jammed in this copier. Yep, I fixed it.”

You know what it’s like…you go to the work photocopier, located in that little secret room, put in your special secret departmental code that nobody else is supposed to know (but literally everyone but the new hire knows) and you start to photocopy some VERY important work documents.

You put your originals in the feeder, press ___ (The number of copies you need for your co-workers, neighbors and relatives), the START COPY button and then the infamous JAM icon lights up and the machine starts to beep…. beep, beep….beep…. beep, beep…. and you start to SWEAT!!!

(beep…. beep, beep….beep…. beep, beep….)

(Oh God!!! I hope nobody walks in right now!)

(beep…. beep, beep….beep…. beep, beep….)

The person BEFORE you left papers jammed all through the copier.. and didn’t take the time to read the simple directions, “Lift Handle, Open Latch A, Pull Lever B,  Remove Page!!!”  How hard can it be???? SHEESH!!!!

Hey Phil-The-Photocopy-Phreak… you may not be one of those dudes that shows up with a short-sleeve dress shirt with a tie, hush-puppies, a briefcase full of Hannibal-Lecter-type tools and inked stained hands but, we’re sure you can read simple directions!!!!

How about the next time you try photocopying, the weekend football poll numbers, a new cabbage soup loose-30lbs-in-30-seconds-without-exercise diet recipe, your bum (at the office Holiday Party), a stack of jokes (since you’re email is monitored) or the recipe for that yummy new snack Margie in Accounting made for today’s work Steelers Party….. you take 12.5 seconds out of your busy-ass day to FIX the paper jam, Ya Jagoff!!!!!!

I write about Jagoffs, i.e. stupid politicians, awful sports officials, dumb criminals, bad drivers, ignorant people and on and on. BTW, Jagoff is NOT a swear word. It can be just as confusing as their, there and they're. Sometimes it's actually used as a term of endearment. My Pittsburgh blog is YaJagoff.com. Twitter is @YaJagoff.

    I’ve become pretty good at unjamming copiers, which can only mean someone else is not..

    Or leave it for the secretary to take care of. In the course of working various (mostly temp) office jobs over a few decades, I became an expert photocopier unjammer. 😉
