Unlike my previous writings, I can take no credit for the genius below. However, I did have the forward thinking to write it down and post it here.
Background: I am a maintenance guy for college students.
The Downside: College students are, by a staggering majority, dumb. Many of the work orders which come across our desks are either ridiculous or could be fixed by the tenants themselves with some critical thinking and problem solving.
Things the university claims to be teaching them...I plead the 5th in this regard.
My boss is one of the funniest men I’ve ever met; his sense of humor has gotten us through the day many times over. I found some old work orders on his desk yesterday, and for the good of us all he’d written some notes which I’m sure he meant no one else to see.
So I stole them.
