Never let them put the printer near your desk.

No matter what your title (art director, head of catering, CFO), if you sit near the printer people will ask for help with it. It's as if they think proximity gives you printer wisdom. As if, while the rest of the office toils in isolation, the printer is silently sending you the untold secrets of the printing world.

I know. I'm one of those people. Where's the 11 x 17 paper?

I sit by the printer, it's one of those fancy printer, copier, fax all-in-one deals; I found out today I've been telling people the wrong fax number for nearly a month now.

Don't always trust the guy by the printer.

I think you should purposely give out the wrong fax number.

Unfortunately, they've put a big label on it, as of yesterday.

I'm re-entering the job market. Good advice that I will keep in mind because I know you are so right.

I sit FAR FAR away from the printer for that very reason.
