Many companies post examples of online wit near the copy machine, for example. These office gathering places help everyone maintain a sense of perspective when a printer jams or runs out of ink unexpectedly.


Actress Naomi Watts probably expressed the frustration of many people during the Era of Social Distancing when she posted a rant online recently.

  2. When the office printer color started to look a little off the manager called the local repair shop. To the manager's surprise the clerk said that it would cost $50 but that he might try reading the manual and doing it himself. The manager replied in astonishment "does your boss know that you discourage business that way? Yes, replied the clerk. It was his idea. We make more on repairs than cleanings if the owner tries to do it himself first.

  3. A woman called tech support and said her computer couldn't find the printer. The tech asked, "are you working under windows?" The woman replied "no I'm near the door but the guy in the next cubical is working under a window and his printer works fine."

  4. The printer is comprised of three main parts; the case, the jammed paper tray and the blinking red light.

See if it floats in the fountain in front of the building. Take it to the gun range for target practice. See if it bounces when you throw it off the roof.

  7. A man about to propose to his girlfriend showed a coworker the engagement ring. Proudly, he told him, “This ring cost me $2000.” “Wow,” answered his friend. “I haven't paid so much for something so small since I last bought color ink jet cartridges.” **
