Copier Update

Yesterday I called to check up on my report to security regarding the copier. It seems there was no report filed by the night cadet. The two cadets during the day opened a report and did some investigating. When they stopped over at the library they asked, “So, where is the wrapper from the ream?”
No, I hadn’t mentioned that the 1st thing the copier told me was that tray 1 had been opened. The only reason that would have been the 1st message, would be if the person using it removed the normal paper, and put their own paper in. So, I responded to the cadet, “Well, considering it was probably the cleaning crew… I’m sure they emptied their own trash , but I’m curious to know how you knew there should have been a wrapper. ”
“We have someone on the security cameras coming in carying a ream of paper that is not the same as you guys use.”
“Oh really? Well that certainly fits with the emails I got from the copier. The first email I received was one telling me Tray 1 had been opened by someone.”
The second cadet chimed in with, “The only people up here at the times in question were the cleaning people”
“Well, thats no shock… they are always messing with things. Our razor knifes disappear out of desks and reappear all the time. The first aid kit vanished a month or so ago, the coffee disappears at an alarming rate…”
cadet 1: “This is the 1st we have heard of any of this, you need to be reporting all of this”
my Boss: “We have, to [their supervisor].”
me: “He frequently insists it’s it you guys doing it”
Cadet 2 rolled his eyes, while cadet 1’s blood pressure obviously rose just a twinge.
“Well, we will continue to look into this, and make sure the chief is aware of all of this when he gets back.”
me: “Thank you!”
boss: “If you need the emails let us know we can send them to you”
cadet: “Ok, thank you”

So, thats the latest on the copier story. I love our copier… 🙂
