Sometimes the way staff recklessly print things off without knowing where or how many it is mind-boggling. And frankly, it’s so painfully wasteful that I can’t stand it. This is the email I’m refraining from sending to the staff:
Happy Nearly Holidays, Everyone!
Nearly. Until then, this printer Scrooge will be watching!
There has been over half a ream of paper printed between the labs up here that remain unclaimed. I think it’s about 1/4 of a Tolstoy novel printed out for some light reading over the break. But honestly, wouldn’t it be more satisfying to go and pick up the entire book at a local store with the gift card you are sure to receive in the next week?
Rest assured folks, I will fight deforestation as best I can by recycling any and all papers not picked up by 2pm. So pick up your stuff in a timely manner, or your papers will become the rear end of someone else’s printing job. Gotta leave some trees to be cut down for next year’s festivities, after all.
