I Need More Toner

Please consider the environment before printing this email.

I have a client who includes that tagline in the signature line of every email. It’s starting to piss me off. I don’t even know what that means. If I gave a crap I’d ask him to be a little more specific.

Does he mean my general environment? I gazed out the window and it was decidedly an urban environment. I hit print.

Does he mean the immediate environment around my printer? Like the information in his email was super confidential and subject to corporate espionage? I didn’t see any suspicious characters lurking in the shadows of my printer. So I hit print again.

Does he mean the planet’s environment – like the air and the water? I checked the news and apparently the environment is in pretty bad shape. I decided I had better stay inside and work. I hit print four more times so everyone in my office would have a copy.

Please reconsider wasting a piece of paper on this drivel before printing this post.

Are you presuming that I was going to waste a piece of paper on this drivel, and you’d rather I didn’t, or that I’ve decided not to waste a piece of paper on this drivel, and you’d really like me to?

What are your thoughts on lamination?

You should open a hamburger stand and wrap your burgers in his emails.

I Need More Toner -- I thought it was going to be a post about your spring bike training.

OK, that was lame.
