Tak's Temp Job (part 2)

Continued from here

The morning goes by slowly. I have been filing A-35JZ forms in triplicate all morning. One in the Alpha file, one in the Date file and one in the Subject file. I am not sure why, I thought the Republic had everything on Datapads. So much for the paperless office that Microsith promised.

My “duty officer”, Ensign Kip comes in to glare at me.

“Are you a flippin’ Idiot! You have filed the A-35JZ under Parts. Geez, why would you do that?”

“Because the A-35JZ is a request for Speeder parts.” I reply in my best “don’t kill this man” voice.

“Then you should file it under Transportation, you freakin’ moron. Why do I get all the dumb ones? Gosh!!” Ensign Kip hissed at me. “Just take this cart of file and photocopy them.”

I grab the cart and start down the hall, but not before hearing “Ugh! Idiot!” from the Ensign.

Half an hour later I am back at Ensign Kips office. “Umm… Sir, there was a problem with the copier.”

Ensign Kip walks out and starts to ask “What is freakin wrong now, I was just chatting with Corellian babes on the holonet and ….”

I guess there was.... you didn't try to 'fix' somthing that wasn't broken did you? Supervisor does that ALL the time... I just don't get that. :)

Professor Xavier said...

That's what they get for putting combat troops in an office setting.

jin said...

Don't you have one of those buttons on your helmet that makes you turn invisible?

Dark Jedi Kriss said...

Oh I know this out, he looks.... um...evil?

Skywalker said...

Oh, man. Love the toner look.. you look so 'toned'.
Yeah, I made pun.

Master Obi-Wan said...

Never mess with a copier, it will mess back.

Lt. Cmdr Oneida said...

You need an Easy Button

Jon the Intergalactic Gladiator said...

So did you try to fix it by dumping toner all over yourself?

Steven said...

Don't forget to put your cover sheets on your TPS reports

Nan: Noooo! The photocopies were coming out blank, so I needed toner. Then …

Jin: They got rid of those buttons after the Naboo women’s Gubaball locker room incident

DJK: Evil, yes and very seductive to the ladies I hear. I saw you looking at him.

Prof X: Exactly

Skywalker: Yeah I have been working out … hey wait a minute

Lt. Cmdr: See answer to Jin :)

Jon IG: No, it just exploded when I hit the doohickee with a thingbob.

Steven: They need cover sheets!! Oh man, why doesn’t any one tell me these things.

srp said...

Well, Michele sent me.
I thought the copier issue required shaking.... or rather that Easy Button. An easy button would have really helped Yoda.

Merlyn Gabriel said...

Oh Tak, toner is said to cause cancer you know, you should be more careful!

Plus the Emperor gets pissy when office workers waste supplies.

Rubbing alcohol might take it off the armour...

In the meanwhile have a great weekend, go to Dex's and enjoy a great meal or a corellian Zinger or something!!!

xxs and oos

Paige said...

My goodness, Kip is good!

Happy Weekend, here by way of Michele's

Kristi Mantoni said...

Don't forget the cover sheet! Never forget the cover sheet!!

Is there a Kinkos near by??

Local Henchmen 432 said...

Darth Nepharia said...

Tak, if you keep up like this, they will ban all clones from the office.....maybe this is a good thing. :D
