Yet another example

Yet another example of why I'm tired of working there. I work with people who make requests like this:

"Please put the prospect master for newsletter in my box so I can update."

What decade are these individuals living in? What's she gonna do with that "master," "Xerox it"?

I don't even know how to fulfill this request. I mean, quite aside from the disturbing use of terms that went out with the mimeograph, this individual has been working with me for a decade and still doesn't fathom that it works like this: 1) she gives me a change, 2) I make the change to the doc, 3) I give her back an original (or a master, if that's the way she wants it). How exactly does she think she's going to make the changes to a paper original? Cut and paste?!

Sheesh. I can't wait to work with people who live in the 21st century.
