We finished checking all the boxes. Then I suggested that I go upstairs and photocopy all the pages.
"No!" Primo said. "You won't do it right!"
"How can I not make photocopies right?"
"There's a bunch of stuff on my desk and I don't want you touching it!" he said.
"Fine," I said. "You do it."
At least he didn't say he was worried I wouldn't know how to operate the copier. When I was working at the World Bank as a temp secretary, one head secretary and I had this conversation. This was when I was in the same group where the secretary I was replacing had dozens of porn sites bookmarked on her internet.
Head secretary: I need you to send a fax.
Me [reaching for the paper]: OK.
HS [snatching paper away from me]: When you send the fax, you need to wait for the FAX CONFIRMATION NOTICE.
Me: Yeah. OK.
HS: You have to look at the FAX CONFIRMATION NOTICE.
Me [reaching for the paper]: Yes. I know.
HS [holding paper away from me]: If the FAX CONFIRMATION NOTICE doesn't say "OK," you have to RE-SEND THE FAX.
Me: I know! I know!
HS: Because that means the fax DID NOT GO THROUGH.
Me: Yes. I know. You must be used to working with really stupid people.
