Irritation #467,297 for today

I'm not sure why, but for some reason the copy machine always needs to have its paper supply replenished, right before I need to use it. There's no rhyme or reason to the pattern but it never fails. I need a copy. The copy machine needs paper.

While I enjoy a good give and take relationship as much as the next person, I think I've been doing a little bit too much of the giving lately.

The distance from the boxes of paper to the copy machine is about 15 steps.

And those are my 7-1/2 size steps. For a taller person, probably less.

So why is the copy machine always out of paper? Does the copy paper fairy come along at night and empty the thing out? Is there a troll living in the Retail Advertising department that likes to cause my blood pressure to go up on a regular basis?

Around this place, nothing would surprise me.

The same phenomena occurs in my house regarding the toilet paper, but I have a pretty good idea whose fault it is. Ahem.
