Working third shift is a pain. You get tired real easy, the nights can seem to drag on forever…
But it helps when you have great co-workers that can make you laugh, and I mean laugh HARD!
Tonight for instance.
Our project scheduler’s (a.k.a. COPS) printer was down. So they had to one that is by me, that I use.
So I had just printed something out, and so did our one COPS. I go over to collect my print outs and I notice all this white blank paper getting printed out. I ask her if she intended on printing out blank white paper…she was all like, “ummm…no…”, so I cancel the print job from the printer (not noticing it is asking for confirmation to cancel, as I walk away)
She come over and we see that along one margin of all the sheets is junk text. So obviously an error is going on.
I go over to look at her machine to make sure the printer was setup correctly. (It was for the most part) and print a test sheet.
Well, I walk over and notice nothing is printing. I look at the screen, confirm the cancel order and more of her original job prints out, but correctly. No Junk text.
I holler over to her, “Hey, maybe its working now, the rest of your job is printing. I don’t know what all that white stuff was…”
I then stop dead in my tracks and go, “Wow…that sounded really bad.” (I had mean all that white paper)
She starts laughing, and then states, “Its a good thing you caught that first, cause I was about to say ‘maybe it’s your white stuff’…” (meaning my print job).
We were laughing so hard, my cheeks hurt.
Thanks Amy for a funny night.
(I know, ironic that she shares the same name as my wife. Funny Story: Its been known to give me complicated jobs or rush jobs at work, and usually Amy hands them to me. I’m kinda her “bitch”, in that sense. I’ve told her in the past that I have just learned, to keep things simple, to do whatever any woman named Amy tells me to…)
