The Awkwardness continues...(and dinner)

So remember my little story from my previous post? So it continues, and oddly, I don't think I've had this happen...

So I was trying to take some initiative today and change out the ink on the postage machine which had been lit up for a week telling us the ink was low...I didn't want to touch it because I didn't want to mess it up, but no one else had either. I finally got the thing open, got the ink out, and searched for another cartridge. While I was looking in the drawer that we NORMALLY keep ink in, it starts dripping down my hand on into the drawer...OK, I can handle that. It didn't get on my shirt, like almost everything else...ANYWAY, didn't see a cartridge so I shook the old one, put it back in, and ran a test print on it. No luck. I thought maybe I put it in wrong since I'd had my little incident with it leaking, so I attempted to take it back out...also with no luck. Finally I go get my boss, who comes out a few minutes later and says it is fixed.

"You put it in backwards, so it got stuck."

"Oh, that must have happened when I did this": *shows ink stained hand*

"There was another cartridge in the other drawer too."

"Oh, whoops."

*hollers to my coworker* "Don't let Lori use the office equipment anymore!"


He laughed about it but of course I felt like an idiot.

At least I took the initiative instead of letting the damn thing blink forever. I mentioned that also. Loudly. Not sure anyone cared.

ANYWAY, onto dinner. Last night I made these FANTASTIC Sloppy Joes:
