    Someone’s About To Get Fired

    Me: “Help Desk, how can I help you?”

    Worker: “Yeah… uh, the printer isn’t working on [assembly line].”

    Me: “Okay, does it have any error messages?”

    Worker: “I think it’s on fire.”

    Me: “It’s on… fire? Did you put the fire out?!”

    Worker: “Well, no…”

    Me: “PUT THE FIRE OUT!”

    (At this point, I hang up the phone and run out to the printer, which at this point is completely engulfed in flames. I grab a fire extinguisher and put the fire out.)

    Me: “Why didn’t you put the fire out?!”

    Worker: “I didn’t think I was supposed to!”
