A few months ago, I switched jobs. Same Special Ops location, different office, different coworkers.
One of my new coworkers is extremely…environmentally friendly.
Which is fine. I like the environment. However, I do tend to kill any plant I try to grow but not on purpose.
On the first day of work, my new coworker handed me a CD with some background documents to read, and he said, “I burned them onto a CD. Savin’ trees, you know?”
Fantastic. Only I didn’t have a computer yet.
The next day I had a few options:
- Print out the documents at home and bring them in to read. (My money.)
- Sit around and do nothing. (Your tax dollars!)
- Ask a coworker to print them out. (Also your tax dollars, but ink and paper is cheaper than my time.)
I opted for Option 3. Even now that I have a computer, I often still print out documents to edit. Instead of hiding from the coworker, I stand over the printer laughing maniacally saying…
Kill all the trees! BWAHAHAHA!
I catch more mistakes on paper than I do on the computer monitor.
Holy macaroni! I can’t believe I missed that comma splice!
It’s the glow of the screen. It’s distracting.
