They get in an argument where the printer begins to lie to the computer. The printer likes to act like it's all out of paper, even when it's not. Then the computer starts giving the printer the silent treatment. This argument can go on for long periods of time. Time in which all work must be put on hold until they get their differences worked out.
Then the internet connection gets involved and starts hanging up on the computer, all Ya Ya Sisterhood style. You know what I'm talking about:
So far the copy machine is staying out of the drama. But I suspect any minute it'll be all like, "The paper you feed me is contaminated. I must me allergic to it, 'cause my sinuses are all jammed up." It'll require diagnostic imaging only to determine the copy machine is being nothing but a hypochondriac.
And don't even get me started on Google and whatever is causing its power failures this week. Apparently even the technology around here still wishes it was on vacation.
