My cubicle neighbor was using a typewriter she and her colleague share
to do those tasks that need to be done by the typewriter.
She noticed that the ribbon would need to be changed soon, so she told
the colleague (age: early 20's) to make sure to order a new ribbon.
A few minutes later, the colleague called over the top of the cubicle,
"What did you call that 'printer thingy' you wanted me to order?"
I feel old. :-)
