As I was sitting comfortably at my desk, suddenly the clerk alerted me that a staff needed IT help.
I went to meet the lady and she handed me two huge printer toners, one cyan and one magenta.
It was my first attempt to replace powdered color toners for a huge hi-tech printer.
“What is this part for?” I pointed to an area of the toner.
“Oh, don’t ask me, I don’t know nothing,” shrugging, she left me with the thing.
Struggling and awkwardly, (with the fear that I might screw up this RM20K printer), by referring to the manual, I managed to put them toners in the slots.
Time to put away the old toners into the box.
As I was tilting the magenta into the box-
About two tablespoonful of powder spilt on the carpet, creating bright magenta marks.
I was panicking,
But I continued my work and handled the used cyan toner.
There was this special lock on the side of the toner, and I accidentally turned the latch the wrong way-
A cup of blue powder spilt on the carpet.
It felt like Indian holi colored powder festival.
Only that I forgot to wear my saree.
And I was rolling eyes and worried, instead of being in a joyful festive mood.
"Oh, the colleagues are glaring at us. Maybe they envy us 'cause they can't join in the celebration!"
I quickly took the vacuum cleaner, and LUCKILY all colored powder could be sucked clean.
Yeah, we IT execs can also become printer technicians and janitors in one go.
