Face Painting

At work tonight our printer was going crazy. It wasn't printing properly because it was running out of ink. So I had to take the cartridge out and shake it a few times and then it would be fine in the process I got a little ink on my hands. No big deal. Finally I gave in and put a new cartridge in. Awesome printing is back to normal....little more ink on my hands...no big deal. Then the $*#* machine starts jamming. I just wanted to throw it! Calmly I say a little prayer to the printer gods to just let me get through this night. After all of that two boys come up to me and say that I have black in on my face!! ALL OVER. you've got to be kidding me! So I start rubbing my face with my hands that are still ink stained and make it worse. Eventually they tell me that it's better....my only thought is how long did I go around helping people and smiling like an idiot with black ink all over my face...

  1. ok, so as soon as you said you shook it, i knew exactly where you were going with this (not because i have ever done it or anything....)

    but usually when i do it, i am in a white shirt, so it is on my face, all over my shirt, & both hands look like i have some spotting disease.
    no bueno.

  8. Oh goodness, I'm glad the ink was easy to come off at least, and nothing too hard to clean off?? :)
