Copy Machine Genius

Teacher: Can you help me, I have been trying for 15 minutes to unjam the copy machine?
IT Guy: Did you follow the directions?
Teacher: Yes, exactly…
IT Guy: Ok, let me see.  Open door 2 and …… here it is
Teacher:  Oh, I didn’t look there. How did you know of this magical spot.
IT Guy: Well, I looked at the pretty screen on top.  If you look right here next to STEP 1 it says OPEN DOOR 2.  Next, I explored the facade of the machine to find the door with this symbol (2) on it.  From there I gathered that it must be door two. Then I grabbed the little knob, opened the door and amongst all the gears and plastic pieces I looked for a flat, white object that looks like paper. When I located the object I used my fingers to remove it thusly.  
Teacher: Oh, I have trouble with this machine
IT Guy:  Yeah……this machine.  Don’t worry I have a Masters degree in direction reading and copy machine unjamming.  It takes a highly educated person to follow blinking directions.

  1. “STEP 1 it says OPEN DOOR 2. Next, I explored the facade of the machine to find the door with this symbol (2) on it. From **their** I gathered that it must be door two. Then I grabbed the little knob…”**there, not “their”**I guess basic grammar isn’t part of the requirements for the “Direction reading” and “copy machine unjamming” majors.Just sayin’.:)

  2. I tested out of grammar in the Direction Reading”and Copy Machine Unjamming Program. Maybe I should have taken the class…….

  3. TheDoctor925: your grammar skills blow, buddy.Well, I looked at the pretty screen on top. If you look right here next to “STEP 1,” it says “OPEN DOOR 2″. Next, I explored the facade of the machine to find the door with this symbol “(2)” on it. From there, I gathered that it must be door two. Then, I grabbed the little knob and opened the door. Amongst all the gears and plastic pieces, I looked for a flat, white object that looked like paper. When I located the object, I used my fingers to remove it.If you notice, I did not change the word “there.”http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/their
