Default Office Machinery that is out to kill you

For those of us who work in an office setting, we all have that one machine that absolutely loves screwing with us. So let's here those stories.

Right now, mine is a fax machine. I absolutely hate this thing. It says paper jam when there is no paper jam. You change the toner and everything is in right and it decides to THEN jam the paper for no reason. I want to go Office Space on this damn fax machine and right now, it's looking at me, wide open when the toner goes and is laughing at me.

I know I'm not the only one.

Photocopier - the one in our office ALWAYS jams. Not to mention the nasty rays they emit. Now THOSE machines are out to kill you.

My laptop is a peice of shit.

The heat sink is fucked. It overheats and shuts itself off about 6 times a day. I've been asking for a new one (a desktop though) for over a year. Our Marketing/Web Dept guys keep getting new toys all the time, but I'm still waiting for a new machine. Whenever it shuts itself off I feel like taking it, walking into their office and throwing it at their heads...

We have a computer in our lab. that we use to figure out how much of our radioactively-tagged chemical compound has been broken down into metabolites. The machine is archaic - it runs on Windows 95, has a keyboard that makes all the clacking sounds when you type, has a floppy drive for those big floppy disks, and a smaller disk drive. It needs to be restarted before every run (i.e., 6 times a day) because it can only handle one run at a time, and restarting takes 15-20 minutes by the time the operating system (??) and the programs load up.

I have asked for a newer PC for this damn counter since I joined the lab. 2 years ago, but my supervisor (as previously mentioned) is a giant piece of turd who really doesn't care.

It's all v. frustrating and makes me want to cry.

My laptop is ridiculously slow.

My sales meeting, every morning, are fucking killing my soul.

Paying to park at work is a fucking crime, especially if you're in sales and they expect you to drive.... fuck the tax write off, give me a parking space, our office is right above the god damn lot.

Oh boy.

My kitchen, what they call a kitchen, has no sink or running water, if you want water you can get it from the public washroom on the floor of the building im in.

Oh there's more.

But alas, I must work now.

Oh yes, our Sales Mgr. competes with us, and uses his position to do it.

Nicely "managed" bud.
