*Lill calls Jill at work*

Lill: What does it say about your workplace when the newly purchased top of the line printer is more competent and productive than you and your coworkers?

Jill: Hmm…that you should probably nuke the machine and fire the guy in purchasing who bought it.

Lill: I knew I brought my pitchfork and torch in today for a reason!

About Lill and Jill

We are Lillian and Jillian; best friends and roommates. We blog to capture the seemingly trivial moments of thought and expression that make us smile; the often-times ridiculous way we see the world and how we live in it. We ask that you think well of us despite our propensity for drinking saccharine-laden alcoholic beverages, affection for 90â€ēs boy-bands, and regular inappropriateness.

    There’s always a powersurge to take it out of operation. Little coffee spill…..for the right price, I know people who know cousins of people. 😉

    • I am those people…who do you think everyone asked to ‘deal’ with the machine? This will take time and proper scheming – the machine is smart and would I’m sure survive coffee spillage and indeed a random powersurge…tricky, very tricky …L

        Perhaps you could persuade it to seek employment elsewhere or it might meet an unfortunate “bump” out of the window.

        Be careful…..such machines are diabolical and tend to record everything.

      • YES – Exactly! This is why I don’t sleep at night…
        You may be onto something with a switch in employers though…maybe I can convince it to move to Jillian’s office instead…she does get better benefits…L

        Cunning cyborgs!!!

        You could make an offer that can’t be refused. See the Godfather and seek from him a boon on this they day of his daughter’s nuptials.

      • The Godfather eh? Last time I saw the Don I lost my right thumb – I’mnot makingthatmistake again…L

      • Nowan Zen says:

        I can speak to him on your behalf. Won’t cost you a thumb this time….just some brownies.

      • Brownies work! Jill makes yummy brownies and it’s a good thing too as I’m having a fair bit of trouble with the spacebar and no righty ðŸ˜Ķ …L

    You can always tinker with the machine a bit so that it no longer so “efficient” and more “humane” 🙂

    • Excellent idea! If it ever goes on sleep-mode (though I’m sure it keeps one port open) I will attempt suggested tinkering – it really is very clever so I might need to bring a laser pointer to distract it…hmmm…L
