I Bought Ink
I never have printer ink. When I need it, I call around and nobody else has it either and since whatever I need it for needs to be printed today it's useless to place an order. I go to the copy shop all the time and have one sheet of paper printed out; a permission slip, a handbook, a coupon, a homework assignment. I am the grasshopper of home office computing, never prepared for the long winter of needing ink, scrounging around at my friend the ant's house, with a flash drive in my pocket, trying to mooch printer access "Would you mind if I just printed a page or two real quick?" I've been known to hand draw a permission slip at eight fifteen in the morning on the day it is due back, my embarrassed nine year old asking "Are you sure this is ok?"
