Best. Dissatisfied. Employee. Ever

Dissatisfied with your job writing copy for a product you don’t care about. This guy who writes advertising for printer ink cartridges is too.

It’s here, and here’s a cached version in case it gets fixed, but here’s what he wrote, for posterity’s sake:

Remanufactured HP 300 – (CC640EE) Black

Remanufactured HP 300. Contains 8ml of high quality pigment ink and will print 380 … Do you know what? I really can’t be bothered with writing these description anymore, it’s a printer cartridge! What am I supposed to write really??? It’s a cartridge that prints ink on to paper, you could print some work stuff or a colouring in page for the kids that they’ll half do and then leave laying around on the floor or a poster of the horrible Jonas Bothers for your teen daughter hoping that she might stop listening to there pathetic attempt of music so much. There good quality cartridges I’ll admit that, every time I’ve sneakily took some home with me they’ve worked perfectly, but the thing that’s doing my head in now is writing about them day in and day out with the boss giving me an impossible deadline to finish them all by which means I can’t even sit at my desk pretending to work like I know most people do in this place. My advice to you is if you’ve got to this page then you probably need a cartridge, or you have a weird fetish for ink cartridges, either way it’s a ink cartridge, it works perfectly, so if you want one buy one, if you don’t then why havn’t you left this page allready?

Signed: The guy who writes the boring everyday mundane descriptions about printer cartridges everyday.”

He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.
