I purchased a large format printer and the first print black and white with a single color print I did from it was gorgeous.Â I then moved on to other pictures and quickly discovered that color calibration was the bane of amateur printers everywhere.Â I went to OfficeMax to grab some testing paper of 8.5″ x 11″ semi-glossy at 25 cents a sheet instead of blowing 2 bucks and a gallon of ink for each botched 13″ x 19″.Â The paper appeared to be buy-one-get-one-free deal so clicked my heels as I danced to the counter.
Salesperson: These aren’t covered by the buy-one-get-one-free deal.
Me: Frown.Â It was the only one that didn’t have a sign in front of it saying say from the spectrum of construction paper to super glossy so I suppose I don’t have an excuse to get surly.
Salesperson: Oooh, surly good word.Â I’ve always liked it. *wink*
*I return with appropriate paper*
Salesperson: Do you know what other work I like besides surly?
Salesperson: *one syllable at a time* Cur-mudg-eon-ly.*Head tilt, eye-brow lower*
Me: Kyle, did I just get hit on via the wordÂ curmudgeonly from a middle-aged OfficeMax attendant?
Kyle: Maybe, but I’d rather not think about it.
