Follow Friday: It's Baaaaack!










YAY!  Java is back with not just Follow Friday 40 and Over, but also Meet Me On Monday!  I've really missed her, and am so glad she's back!

How sad is this:  On Tuesday, one of my schools got a couple of new copy machines.  My other school got the same kind of machine a week or so ago, so I knew how to work it.  It looks a bit intimidating:  It's much bigger with more buttons that could be pushed.  Anyway, there were signs on them as well as an e-mail letting us know that we weren't to use them until the secretary and bookkeeper were trained, and then they trained us.  Wed. morning, I had a meeting and needed to make a copy of the paperwork.  Sure, I could've waited until later in the day, but with me being so OCD anal, I had to do it right then.  I told the secretary that I had used the machine at my other school, so she (or maybe it was the bookkeeper) said I could show them real quick how to use it.  So, off we went.  We all got a good laugh when we got to the machine because it wasn't turned on and I had no idea to turn it on!  I don't think they had a lot of confidence in my ability to use the machine!  I showed them how to make a very simple copy, and then commented that I had something to blog about.  Well, that brought on an outburst, along with some comment about me not having a very exciting life!  I love those ladies!  The office is always full of laughter (almost always, anyway!), and they have such a great sense of humor.  I've worked in schools where the office staff was stuffy and not very friendly, and I'm here to tell you that when you have an office staff like we do, it makes going into the office a lot more fun.  My other school has a great office staff, too.  The secretary there has become a good friend through the few years I've worked there.

Okay, now you know what to do:  Visit Java and link up!

  3. The copy machine is something that I do not miss from my working days ... no matter what office I worked in, I always had some kind of problem with the copiers. Ugh! It got to the point where I hated to have to go make copies! ;-) Have a fabulous Friday!

  5. At times, the hardest thing to do is turn something on or off! I can sympathize with you on this one.
