Office Space

In the movie "Office Space" (which celebrates its 20th year this year) there is a gag about a balky fax machine which then gets destroyed when the company lays off a bunch of employees. I have my own version of the fax machine in my office, only it's a water fountain. Every morning I get a large cup of water to start my day. I'm usually one of the first people in the office, so I'm the first to use the drinking fountain. There must be some sort of power/water saving feature built in because it takes over a minute after pushing the button before water starts to flow. I have complained to our office manager but to no avail. Other workers have experienced the same frustration when they beat me to it. A person who usually follows right in back of me complained that I was on vacation last week so he had to deal with it. Yes, on a few mornings when I have been in a grumpy mood I have resorted to violence. ("PC load letter?!? What the fuck does that mean?!?") I'm just 3 years from retirement. Maybe as a going away gift I'll be able to take a baseball bat to it. Oh...and if you have absolutely no idea what the hell I'm talking about...
