At work I fax information to banks and credit unions in order to receive funding for car deals. After faxing, I have to wait a few minutes to see if it goes through. If it does, the printer prints a sheet that says “Successful Fax”. Whenever I receive this notice I take it personally - I truly feel like the copier is complimenting me. I think to myself “you are a success!” However, the opposite also follows when a notice comes through with “Fax Failure”. There is nothing more distressing then being told by a copy machine that you are a failure.
Today I have had four failure notices.
I need a self-esteem boost.
