Mot vs the Printer

Two posts in one day...and on a Friday none the less. But hey, it's my blog anniversary, and I can post again if I want to!!!! :-)

Mot was upstairs on his computer last night, playing in some Quake tournament. Mom and I were downstairs in our living room, working on the laptops.

Greedily soaking the life from his 'ping.'

I can only assume he gave up playing, and switched to surfing the net. Because after some time we hear this from upstairs...

Mot: "AArrrrggggghhhhhh.....this f**king printer sucks donkey balls!!!"

(mumble, mumble, slam)

Mot: "F**k. Just print, you stupid piece of cow sh*t!"

Nej: "What's up babe?"

Mot: "You. Piece. Of. Crap."

(slam, bang....crunch) You can hear pieces of plastics being flexed to just under their breaking point.

Nej: "You gonna go all office space on it's a$$, honey?"



Mot : "PC load letter - what the f*ck does that mean?" (At least he still had his sense of humor!)

Mot: "Well no wonder it does that! What kind of piece of shit design is this? What numb nuts decided that would be a good idea."

After some more cussing, and threats of throwing it out the upstairs window, and promises of killing it's first born child...I hear the tell-tale 'thump thump thump' of Mot trudging down the stairs.

In his hands are three pieces of paper.

Well, one can only assume it was once paper.

The objects he was holding in his hands resembled the tangled mess you get when trying to find a paper jam in an office copy machine.

The top right hand corners were all perfectly, and separately dog-eared. The pages themselves were smudged, smeared and splattered with black and brown globs of wet ink and dry ink dust.

In addition, the words printed on the pages were cockeyed and sideways.

You could see Mot's hands visibly shaking when he held the pages out for us to see.

Mot: "What's wrong with this picture?"

Mot vs Printer, Printer wins.

Mot vs the printer sounds a lot like Matt vs the flooring in my daughter's room from earlier in the day.

It's still only 2/3 done. What was supposed to be a nice afternoon project quickly denegrated into a very expansive exercise in the field of New and Creative Swearing.

Good times, good times.

@ mjenks, flooring was supposed to be a nice casual afternoon activity?? Really? (hehehe)

Wow...it's been so long. Office Space is one of the best movies ever...and coupled with personal printer issues...it's good to be back!
