We have a beast of a laser printer, a Xerox Phaser 6280 with duplexer, that is low on toner and to-o-o-otally not worth it to refill for us because it's down to needing manual refills if you don't want to pay about twice the cost of a new printer.
But a long time ago I put some googly eyes on it, so now it has a personality and we can't just scrap it. I mean, look at that face.
So, uh, does anybody who rolls their own toner cartridges want a very heavy laser printer?
When a coworker thanks you for doing something for them, don't say, "no problem," or "it's my job". Say, "You're welcome."
I started doing this a few years ago and it's surprising how it feels. It acknowledges that you have done a service, that it wasn't trivial, and that your coworker's needs weren't trivial. I doesn't brush off the transaction and makes it more authentic. It's so weird how we avoid being genuine in this context.
