Samir: No, not again. I... why does it say paper jam when there is no paper jam? I swear to God, one of these days, I just kick this piece of sh** out the window.
Michael Bolton: You and me both, man. That thing is lucky I'm not armed.
Samir: Piece of sh**.

Office Space. Perf. Ajay Naidu and David Herman. Dir. Mike Judge. 1999. Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.

TIME:  6:49 PM
PLACE:  Kitchen
SUBJECT:  Cordless phone

Our cordless handsets have been slowing dying on us; they weren’t holding a charge and sometimes, when we dialed out, it wouldn’t register the number that we pressed.  So, today, I purchased a new cordless phone with 4-handsets and set them up.  However we are unable to use them.  Why you ask?  Well let me tell ya…MB and his friend were playing basketball and managed to knock over some scaffolding, which in turn fell on the telephone wire that connected our house to the main line.  While the wire didn’t fall down, something in it must have snapped.  We have no phone nor internet at the present.  An AT&T repairman is scheduled to arrive tomorrow.  I wonder how much this is going to cost us.

Sounds as if it will cost a lot!

It also sounds as if you have moved into a comedy set.

What a bummer! Hope your phone and internet are back and the cost isn't bad!
