This is where I work

I think it's important that I share a little bit about where I work. You can form your own opinions. This is an actual email chain from earlier today. The plotter is a big printer, basically. It is manufactured by KIP (a division of Panasonic, I think), so some people give it names. I guess to make it sound like something that would be cuddlier and not so much like something that will suck your clothes in and then spit toner on you. Some people send emails if they're going to print a big job, because it can tie the plotter up for awhile. Some people don't.

I don’t normally do this, because I don’t think anyone really cares but… I’m sending 9 sets of 24 dwgs. Right now.

OK, thanks W. That would take awhile, good to know.

Your right, no one really cares

This is a little funny, I thought of responding this way myself. I don't always like clogging people's email boxes though. Just usually. Oh, and there's a little typo, it's You're, not Your. Yep, I'm THAT guy.

Speak for yourself, I care.
I’m just surprised that Will took the time to put his beer down to write the email.

Hehe. Some good office humor there. Then, things get strange.

"Why? Because if we don't care, we end up like Pierre.

It was Maurice Sendak's Pierre who always said, "I don't care."

"Good morning darling boy," his mother told Pierre, "you are my only joy."

Pierre said "I don't care."

"What would you like to eat?" his mother asked.

"I don't care," said Pierre.

"Some lovely cream of wheat?" his mother asked.

"I don't care."

He kept saying I don't care until his parents just left him there, and he
was visited by the lion.

The lion asked Pierre if he would like to die. Pierre said, "I don't

So, the lion ate Pierre.

Moral of the story: care. "

I think I’ll go back to NOT clogging up the server with kip plotting alerts. Thanks for your time.

Um, yes, that's probably for the best. Still a little shaken from the previous drivel.

It's not clogging up that you have to watch; but, rather, when you get over the top & start back down, make sure you don't fall into the back-up control station or Serena….

This doesn't make any sense, to anyone. Apparently drinking has become an acceptable practice while still at work. If you'll excuse me, a 40 of Bull Ice awaits.
