Michelle's Tales, Part Two, and I swear I am not making this bizarre thing up... I wish...

So, I'm at work the other day, and I get one of these emails about 'real people' who are dumb as rocks, and here's the story of one:

"Several years ago, we had an intern who was none too swift.

One day she was typing and turned to a secretary and said, 'I'm almost out of typing paper. What do I do?'

'Just use paper from the photocopier,' the secretary told her.

With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the photocopier and proceeded to make five 'blank' copies.

Brunette, by the way!!"


Right through the heart.

How did my own personal story travel twenty years and who knows how many computers until it made its way back to my desk?

The lady who copied blank paper because she needed more paper…

That was me. First office job. Okay, being my regular self.

Someone must have heard me tell that story. I do not think I've ever written it down, have I?

Unless there’s ANOTHER person out there who did that besides me.

Surely not!!!????

In my defense, I was very young.



  1. LMAO ummmmm errrr ummmm okay you were young. I hope your copies came out pretty and white LOL

    1. LOLOL They did... I remember walking away from the copier and only then realizing oh my gosh did I really just do that, immediately followed by, did anyone see me just do that?!!! LOL

  2. I could manage those old Xeroxes with the rubber flap on top but now they have all these chutes and ramps. Using a modern copy machine elevates me to astonishing displays of ignorance. Like Blanche Dubois, I rely on the kindness of strangers.

    1. I once spent a good 45 minutes in the copy room trying to figure out what went wrong, instead of just calling the copy guy. I just KNEW it was an easy fix, if I could just find that darn piece of paper that had caused that massive error...
      I finally ended up calling the copy guy.

  3. Hilarious. Thanks for the morning laugh.

  4. Bwahahahaha! I love it! *wiping a tear* Oh my goodness, thank you for the laugh. I totally needed that.

    1. You're welcome! And thank you for visiting! :)

  5. Ha! You're able to admit. The world is very forgiving of those who can laugh at themselves.

  6. Hello my friend! Forgive me if I've asked this before but could you kindly add a follow button to your blog? I would love to be a follower :)
    Would you mind emailing me afterwards?

    1. I would love to but I don't know how!

      I'm technologically challenged (obviously), Lol.

      Please please let me know where it is and how to do it and I will!

  7. Yes, people like this do exist.
    It seems common sense is not so common.


  8. Ouch, LOL. I get that a lot.

    Thanks for visiting!
