Just a Little Humorous

I am working in the Purchasing Department here at the client and a typical example of some small functionary making a decision that is, on its surface, not that important but actually has a huge impact.
About 2pm I heard "a discouraging word" from one of the buyers standing at the copier. These people are heavy copier users. It seems that someone, and no one is sure who, had all the copiers set to prevent more than a certain number of copies per day. No one was told. The message on the machine says "Daily Copy Limit Exceeded" and just quits. I could not help but laugh. What makes it even funnier is that this copier is also a scanner and fax machine and those functions are suspended as well. No faxing of Purchase Orders, no scanning of PO's to email, nothing. The whole department shuts down for the rest of the day.
