Get into the office today, and the resident slacker (guy spends 15-20 minutes of each hour walking around the building and parking lot) says to me “Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo I noticed that eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevery moooooooooooooooooooooooooooooorning my PC is onnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn.” “Yea? So?” “Well that’s an awful waste of electricity.” (coming from the guy who wastes at least 2-3 hours per day walking around the office). So I respond with silence, every once and awhile someone makes a resource comment and I’ve learned I’m better off biting my tongue than attempting to school them.
“Al Gore must be crying.”
“The computers turn off at 10, on at 6, so that by the time you get in it is ready for work, meaning you won’t have to walk around for 20 minutes waiting for it to start.”
Don’t even get me started on the woman who works once a week and insists on shutting off every light that she can, thinking that a few flourescent bulbs are the difference between energy independence and dooming us all to an oil soaked hell. I’ve got 2 words for every conservationist out there: Gray Davis.
Yeah, shut the fuck up, thanks. 🙂
