Lost

A student walked into my office today.

“Can I do some photocopying?” he asked.

I looked at him blankly for a few seconds, searching his face for any hint in his expression that he had the first clue just how daft his question was.

“Yes,” I answered eventually, “if you can find the photocopier.”

My office isn’t very big, so it didn’t take him long to discover that he would be better off trying elsewhere.

    oh yes. Happens a lot here.

    “Can I get some photocopying please?”

    “Yes. Turn round, go left, keep walking to resources. Ask the nice lady in there”. They do too.

    It’s like the immortal “has a football just come out the printer?”

    “If it has, it’s flat matey.”

    Bless.
