Molten Plastic And Me


I just spent 30 minutes wrestling with the laminating machine. I don't quite get how changing the plastic laminate rolls requires an advanced PhD from MIT, but when I found myself facing third degree burns if I didn't get it right I discovered the learning curve to be much lower. Pain appears to be a great motivator in my case. Maybe the only thing stopping me from being a nuclear particle physicist is that there's no threat of bodily harm?

Handy workplace tip: never be the only person that knows how to do a specific task, unless you want to spend your days fielding emails from panic stricken co-workers unable to plasticize grammar posters and flash cards.

That does not sound like fun. I have enough problems with the printer, let alone dealing with molten plastic. Plus, I always want to touch the hot spot to see if it is really hot. It always is.
