Something's not quite right in the office...

Here I am, trying to run this blog part-time in addition to having the full-time 9 to 5 job elsewhere, - this kind of a lifestyle calls for a healthy sense of humor. You gotta keep your hamsters happy, as they tirelessly run the race... So here goes "the best of office comedy" on the web. By the way, if you have not seen "Office Space" movie, please do so, as it's certainly the best in the genre.

"Don't torture your soul with a wrong career" ad:

Don't take it seriously, for God's sake, folks - an interesting comparison:

IN PRISON: You spend the majority of your time in a 10X10 cell.
AT WORK: You spend the majority of your time in an 8X8 cubicle.

IN PRISON: You get three meals a day.
AT WORK: You get a break for one meal and you have to pay for it.

IN PRISON: You get time off for good behavior.
AT WORK: You get more work for good behavior.

IN PRISON: The guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you.
AT WORK: You must often carry a security card and open all the doors for yourself.

IN PRISON: You can watch TV and play games.
AT WORK: You could get fired for watching TV and playing games.

IN PRISON: You get your own toilet.
AT WORK: You have to share the toilet with some people who pee on the seat.

IN PRISON: They allow your family and friends to visit.
AT WORK: You aren’t even supposed to speak to your family.

IN PRISON: All expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required.
AT WORK: you get to pay all your expenses to go to work, and they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners.

IN PRISON: You spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out.
AT WORK: You spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars.

IN PRISON: You must deal with sadistic wardens.
AT WORK: They are called managers.

"Tech Support" & "Call Answer" Comedy

Being a tech support or "call answer" person definitely requires lots of patience, and a sense of humor.
Here are the most hilarious occasions, recorded for Mirror UK newspaper.

Customer: "I've been ringing 0700 2300 for two days and can't get through to enquiries, can you help?"
Operator: "Where did you get that number from, sir?"
Customer: "It was on the door to the travel centre".
Operator: "They're our opening hours".

Caller: "Can you give me the telephone number for Jack?"
Operator: I'm sorry, sir, I don't understand who you are talking about".
Caller: "In the user guide it clearly states I need to unplug the fax machine from the wall socket and telephone Jack before cleaning. Can you give me his number?"

Then there was the caller who asked for a knitwear company in Woven.
Operator: "Woven? Are you sure?"
Caller: "Yes. That''s what it says on the label: Woven in Scotland".

On another occasion, a man making heavy breathing sounds from a phone box told a worried operator: "I haven't got a pen, so I'm steaming up the window to write the number on"."

Tech Support: "I need you to right-click on the Open Desktop".
Customer: "OK".
Tech Support: "Did you get a pop-up menu?"
Customer: "No".
Tech Support: "OK. Right-Click again. Do you see a pop-up menu?"
Customer: "No".
Tech Support: "OK. Can you tell me what you have done up until this point?"
Customer: "Sure. You told me to write "click" and I wrote "click"".
Tech Support: "OK. In the bottom left hand side of the screen, can you see the "OK" button displayed?"
Customer: "Wow. How can you see my screen from there?"

Don't forget the biggest difference between prison and your cubicle -

In prison, you never get to leave and go home. you have no freedom, no possessions, no money, and no choice in where you live or what you eat. And no one particularly cares if you are terrorized, molested, or beaten - or if you die from anything anyone does to you.

@Roger, The same can be said for those that live hand-to-mouth. I'm not sure which is worse, being incarcerated, or living with an illusion of freedom. In reality, many people live where they can afford, not where they want. They eat what they can afford, not what they want. They have no money after spending for the above. A huge number, at least in the USA, don't have health insurance because they can't afford it. And in reality, nobody cares if they "are terrorized, molested, or beaten - or if you die from anything anyone does to you."

Thankfully I'm no longer in that position. But I paid my dues in a cheap two room flat with a hot plate and a roommate back in the days when macaroni and cheese was on sale for 10 for US$1 and Top Ramin was dirt cheap by the case. My roommate got a months worth of food stamps, for one, and we thought we'd died and gone to heaven. Not everything rosy in the "free" world either.
