Maybe she just didn't know how to open the photocopier to get the paper out, so did the obvious? I'd call that quite a good solution actually.
Good point.

Re: LOL!

indeed.
I was told that story by a friend. From what I have seen some of my colleagues do I'd say the story is very likely true.

A thing that really happened (at a tax office in Finland, in 2004) is even more unbelievable but it was big in the news back then: a man had died at his desk and they noticed it only on the third day.
The cleaners thought he was staring at his computer, concentratedly, and his colleagues didn't miss him at lunch because he often worked out of house.

Found a short summary: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/3410547.stm

Such a thing could never happen at my office: here people greet the cleaners and chat a moment with them It'd instantly be noticed if someone didn't reply.

That kind of ties in with your earlier post about motion-triggered lighting in government offices.

Re: LOL!

LOL indeed. I hadn't noticed that. Kinda proves my point that the involuntary things often are much more funny than deliberate comedy.
