    okay.. I am a lead receptionist for a hospital.. Last week I recieved a phone call after I was already home on how to change toner in one of our printers. I was a little peeved that that was a phone call that was even needed to be made.. literally the process is take a new toner off the shelf ( we moved 4 years ago they have been in the same spot for 4 years) open the box rip the pakage open tear the strip off and take the old out and replace with the new.. no messes at all.. really all the docs can figure it out how came the educators can not.. any way.. I reminded them all that Reception staff does not use the printers as they are not close to us and not practical for us to us.. so there for we would never know when the toner was low or even out.. I got a nasty gram stating that it is clerical postion and that we should tend to this.. and so on.. the only problem with this is they should know how to maintain an item the us on a daily basis.. they also have fair warning of when the toner is running low because it blinks and says toner low for like a week before it will not print anymore.. so What do i do about this..

    I have taken it to my director.. she is on my side saying they should know how to do this since they are using it.. I also had one person email back saying she is in GOOD CLOTHES and that she does not want to ruin them by doing my job.. REALLY LADY scrubs are just as spendy as good clothes sometimes more depending on what you are willing to spend.. so can you see why that is just a little peeving.. what would you all do.. i have not responded to anything left it with my director..

    Sounds like you work with some real rocket scientists. Lol. It's amazing how people think because you are a receptionist that you are also a copier guru. It's not that hard to replace a toner cartridge. If you do it right, it's not even messy. And as far as the Good Cloths comment, really? Idiots. Sounds like some of the people I work with who have advanced degrees and wet couldn't find their a$$ with both hands, a friend and a map. Good luck and I would for sure let the director know that these people are clearly overpaid and that if you were supposed to be the copier guru, you should get the extra money from these people.

    Not to mention, WHY ARE THEY CALLING YOU AT HOME? Leave it with your director. Sounds like your co-workers don't deserve a response from you. They already have wasted enough of your time. Good luck!
