Memo to the guy at Kinko's

Listen, jacko - just because I'm standing in front of your fax machine, waiting for it to connect, doesn't mean I'm a complete idiot and don't know how it works. But hey, that was really impressive when you pressed the stop button to start all over after the fax machine had finally connected and already sent the first of my three pages. It's a good thing they're paying you to work there, because I was clearly helpless. (Gee, does the busy signal mean the line is busy? Oh, thank goodness for you, Mr. Kinko's Man!)

Did your nametag say "Assistant Manager", or "Head Micromanager"? I didn't quite catch that. Anyway, thanks for drawing out what would've been a five-minute task (at best) into nearly twenty minutes. That was great.
