Aaaaand the coworkers don't help

It was frustrating enough yesterday when I was actually making progress and the coworkers kept bothering me with their attempts at being comedians. Today, while I'm struggling...well, I'll share this just-tweeted nugget:

We moved upstairs to a different office back in February. Perpetually overly-dramatic coworker just figured out that the printer we moved isn't hooked up to a fax line. She's evidently been "faxing for months" and clearly never checked that nothing has reached its destination.

I had to leave the room and go fill my water bottle down the hall when she was angsting and flailing about it and going "Joe, Joe, did you know that the fax doesn't work? We need to be able to fax!" (For the record, for the...I think two years...we worked in side by side offices, I never once saw or heard her use the fax machine).

Then again the other day she spent a full hour pacing around the outer office loudly ranting about how our grants specialist is "annoying and dramatic" and pointing out how she herself is not dramatic, not at all, no, nope. AN HOUR.

So, so glad to be out of the education field at times.

I seem to recall there was some talk of getting rid of the fax machine in our office. I haven't sent a fax since the 90s, but I think our advice staff still use it for sending copies of paperwork to some people. But is has yet to be cause of any drama!

For the very rare time that someone needs to fax something, all they have to do is go one floor below to the Executive Dean's suite. So Ms. Drama in our office can cool her jets. LOL

Three things are certain in life... death, taxes, and stupid co-workers.

Sending long overdue hugs <3
