George the Printer Goose

1 Jun

Happy Monday everyone!  Today, I would like to introduce you to a very close friend of mine.

Meet George

Meet George

George is our printer goose.  We don’t know where he came from.  But he arrived to our company on a day when our printer was continuously messing up.  Nothing would print.  Nothing would copy.  Nothing would scan.

We come in the next morning, and there is this little blue goose sitting on the printer.  Thinking nothing of it, I tried to get it to print again.  Lo and behold, it works!  Everything works as it is suppose to.

Now, I am not a super supersticious person.  But.  If we move George?  It stops working.  I swear it.  Someone thought it would be funny to steal George.  The printer quit doing anything again.

So we leave George where he is.

And sacrifice a gerbil to the printer gods weekly, just in case.

    Hilarious! We have a group of rubber duckies that camp out near our printer, and sometimes make their way to department members’ offices, but their presence or absence seems to have zero effect on the reliability of our printer. It always jams regardless!

    Hope you’re having a wonderful day!

      Maybe you need to get a goose to make it not jam! They work wonders!

      And it’s a Monday….so can’t be too wonderful!

      Normally I would say yes to almost anything anyone asks, but not to George. We need George as the desert needs the rain. And all those cheesy lines from songs. Especially since we have to print invoices. And invoices are difficult enough without having to deal with missing George!
