Stupid should hurt.

As I glide into the office (13 minutes late, but for me that's actually early) I spy a note on my desk. I can recognize that chicken scratch anywhere. It's from The Boss.

In case you need a translation, it says:

Check on call phone on clock.

Fro (an employee's nickname) said it says lo battery.

I must say, that is one of his better notes. There are minimal spelling and gramatical errors. Usually it takes a good ten minutes to decipher what he's written.

Anyway, the phone he's referring to is a cell phone. Now friends, what do you usually do when your cell phone's battery is low?

Simple fix eh? How is it that two grown men, both owners of (at least) one cell phone each, could not figure that out on their own? I mean really.
Can you understand my frustrations with my work life? Geezy-kreezy. Things like this happen on a daily basis. At first I thought I was being Punk'd or something of the sort. Sadly no. Ashton Kutcher will not be popping up in my office anytime soon. It's just plain ole' stupidty.
Here's your sign.

Rather than plug it in. Mock up a bill for a lot of money. Tell them you had to call in a tech support and they charged $200 an hour. Took roughly 2 1/2 hours. But by golly you got that thar phoney dealy fixered right up! Maybe they wont ask you to do such things anymore. Here here for shopping money out of nowhere!
