  My job involves lots of paperwork. Most of it is submitted online, but some has to be faxed. Well, my fax machine ran out of ink, and I was having a hard time finding a replacement cartridge. Meanwhile, my supervisor had some paperwork that needed to be filled out ASAP. So he called me and asked if I would prefer it sent as an email or as a fax. I told him my fax machine was out of ink, so it would be best if he emailed it. Then he said "Well, it's better for me if fax it. I won't be online for the rest of the day, and I need the paperwork before 5PM." So I repeated that my fax machine was out of ink, so I can't get any faxes. When he again said how urgently he needed those papers, I said he could email them and then I would print them, fill them out, and fax them back to him. Well, he thought about that a moment. Then he said "Well, I dunno. That doesn't make sense. How can you send a fax when your machine is out of ink?" I actually had to explain to this idiot that the machine doesn't need ink to SEND faxes. It only needs ink to RECEIVE them.

  A week later, I was on a job and ran into a problem. I'm instructed to call my supervisor if there's any questions/problems, so I did. But since he says it's best to reach him by cellphone, that was the only number he gave me (and that alone is stupid enough). So I called his cellphone, and got this message: "I am out of the office for the rest of the day. Please leave your name, phone number, and the time of your call along with a brief message. If this is urgent, please call me on my cellphone." Then  -- even though this was his cellphone's voicemailbox -- he gave his cellphone number.

  That's why they pay him the big bucks.
