4PM Call Repairman–again

Teacher: Fix the photocopier, it’s not working.
Secretary: What did you do to it?
Teacher: Nothing, it’s just jammed, unjam it.
Secretary: Oh my god, what is that smell…what did you do?
Teacher: Nothing.
Secretary: Did you put transparencies in here? Oh my god, you did! Dude! You can’t do that! They’ll melt! This is a colour photocopier.
Teacher: I wanted colour transparencies.
Secretary: You are so demoted to mimeograph!

Hey, in England They Have a Whole Day Devoted to Boxes.

Receptionist: Would you like to keep the box it came in?
Admin: Hmm… No, it’s okay, thanks.
(later)
Receptionist: That box was really cool because it just folds down. You don’t have to cut any tape off because it doesn’t need tape.
Admin: Damn! Missed out on a good one.
Receptionist: It’s still here!
Admin: I think I have too many. But how often do you come across a really great box?
Receptionist: What have our lives come to?
