I work with a native Japanese person. She also teaches Japanese. She has yet to master the copier in 4 years. She doesn’t understand that if it is in use it will not accept another copy job until the current run is over. She is to be seen trying to push her papers into the top feeder while the lower feeder is churning out copies. She also asks me where my boss is. A lot.

I find her endearing. Sadie and I sometimes send each other haikus about this teacher.

More Later,




  1. You are to be commended dear Plantress, I'm afraid I would find her "annoying". But perhaps she is just one of those dear hapless things that true southerners smile about and say "Why bless her heart." Unfortunately I'm not a true southerner. LOL

  2. Oh and please share one of your haikus with us.:)

  3. LOL! Reminds me of that scene in Office Space... "Why does it say paper jam when there is no paper jam!?!?" I have been known to say that around copy machines just for the hell of it! :)

    BTW, I am still laughing about the "white mailbox". Thanks for sharing that little gem! LOL!
