Its early in the morning and I am just arriving at work.  Female Boss is in the kitchen, I say hi.  I head to the office and take a seat at my desk.  Male Boss springs up from his TV watching and already starts things off.  Its a bit early for him, this means he is gonna be cranky.  Sure enough, Male Boss starts barking about some bullshit regarding the printer connected to his computer and how its not working properly.  This is a good time for me to grab my trusty pen and pad, so I do.

From the kitchen, Female Boss interrupts his rant by throwing gasoline on the fire, "It just needs to be plugged in, Northe.  Don't listen to him.  We both know how brilliant of a mind he has when it comes to computers."

I do not get up from my seat.  I sit there, waiting for the comeback.  Then.. right on queue:

"Hey Northe, I'm pretty sure she fucked it up."

"Okay.  I'll check it," I say gratuitously still waiting at my desk with pen in hand.

Why am I still seated at my desk?  Are you kidding?  Male Boss is just getting started, "She always fucks it up.. don't you Female Boss?  Can never let shit the way it stays.  Always wants to fuck around, right?  Isn't zis how you do?"

"You better shut the fuck up right now!  I'll fuckin leave!" she blasts back.

Male Boss goes into a mumbling state, "Well I'm pretty sure you fucked it up."

I get up at this point as the pot has slowed to a simmer.  Female Boss was quite right, the printer was unplugged.. for what reason or another I have no fucking clue.. and why she didn't solve the problem before it fell into my lap is a totally different skull to crack.  It wasn't to conserve power as the power cable was still connected.  Even she would know to turn the power 'off' on the printer, wouldn't she?  So why the fuck it was unplugged is not for me to guess.  I will leave that up to you guys.  Anyway, I plug the shit in and call it a job well done.

"What was it then, Northe?" asks Male Boss.

"Oh, just the cable was unplugged on it.. its fine now," I says.

Male Boss focuses his ire toward Female Boss again, "So tell me, Female Boss why the fuck you like to fuck around and unplug that shit?  Why the fuck you doing it?"

"I swear to God, you better shut your fucking mouth," she hollers.

"Fuck you, don't ever touch my fucking printer.  Never again!"

I coulda counted to 5 at that point.  **SLAM!!!**  The front door slams shut.  Female Boss is gone.  She did not return that day.  Male Boss didn't give a shit.  He sat on the couch most of the day anyway.  Crazy fucks..
