Keyboard Ink..

Discussion in 'Jokes and Humour' started by AnotherMacca, May 5, 2007.

  1. Okay, so get this. I was noticing that my forum posts were getting a little pale, and washed out, so I went to the local office supply store to get a new ink cartridge for my keyboard, and, would you believe it, they didn't have any. I mean, I know my keyboard is getting on in years, but is that any excuse not to carry the refills? Do they really expect me to buy a new keyboard every year just to keep up with them? Anyway, I figured that maybe it was just well hidden, so I cornered a clerk and asked him where the keyboard refills were, and he just stares at me! So I ask him again, and he says he doesn't know. So then I ask to talk to the manager, and he says he'll go get her, and as he's walking away from me I can clearly hear him laughing under his breath. That's just rude.

    ments later Linda, the manager, comes out, and I ask her where the keyboard refills are, and get this: She tells me that they don't exist! Now I've had to put up with a lot of crap through the years as a consumer, but this was a new one, even to me. I mean, if you don't carry the damn product, just admit it! Don't lie to me just to cover up your failings. I mean, does she think I'm an idiot, or something?

    Anyway, to make a long story short, I don't think I'll be shopping there anymore. I would go into more detail, but it suddenly occurs to me that I need to go order a new ink cartridge somewhere online before I run completely out of ink.

  2. :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

    That reminds me of a mate that worked for Ericcson's some years back.....
    he used to get all the apprentices to go to the inhouse supply store for a bucket of "dial tone" :wink:
  3. I just looked at your code dude. Damn. For a half-chuckle sort of gag, that must have taken a lot of effort!
  4. :-$ Cut'n'Paste.. :oops: :LOL:
  5. Trade you a refill for ya bike?

    Me like it lots!!! Cheers by the way... I am so getting P's ASAP...starting to get tired of the 250 caper i think...keep seeing nice big bikes :evil:
  6. Well I ended up getting some ink, but as you can see, its not the type that was required. I wonder if I can obtain a refund and exchange of product? :grin:
  7. Someone still must have spent allot of time on it though!
  8. Neat....

    I delight in requesting my colleagues type in lowercase, as it uses less hard disk space.
  9. Cute gag, macca :LOL:

    I remember an IT mate of mine rang up a major printer comapny and asked how much white toner was for his new colour laser.......
