Love/Hate Relationship With Technology

Today, I have definitely had a love/hate relationship with technology. Most of the time, we are extremely lucky to be able to work in a day and age of copiers, faxes and computers. The technology that we have is amazing, as it allows us to be extremely productive within the 8 hour work day.

This all great until the day, it all decides to not work on you, which in fact is today! I came into work to find that my printer wasn't working. When I left yesterday it was and to my knowledge no one touched it while I was gone. It took awhile to get it to work, but eventually it was up and running again. I still have no idea what was really wrong with it. Little did I know though, this was just the start of many other issues.

I was given the task of copying a mountain of paperwork, thus killing a huge section of our dwindling rain forests. The darn copier decided it didn't like me and was eating the paper, thus I had to make more copies and kill more trees. I am sure I am now am the office expert on fixing the darn thing.

It then started printing blurry pages, which I had to shred as they were still partially legible. Our shredder decided it didn't like me as well and decided it was going to jam. One of my coworkers jokingly said I should have just stayed home today!

Then finally my computer wouldn't allow me to burn some Cd's. It keep telling me to insert a disk, when one was already inserted. I took the same disks to my boss's desk and they worked fine. What else can go wrong?

Thankfully, the day is almost over and I soon get to go home. Hopefully, tomorrow the copier will be having a better day and thus I will have a better day as well! :)
