One time a shredder got jammed. After nearly an hour of fussing with it, I determined it could not be cleared with the usual tools. I was frustrated and irritated, and apparently I had very little patience left. The note left behind on the machine to indicate that it was unusable was a single word.


I can have notes that describe the issue and what action is being taken until the issue is resolved. I can have notes saying what is okay to take and what isn’t.

But apparently, in my world, nothing quite shocks a person into paying attention to the contents of a note than only having one word on the page.

So I continue to use it.

It is a complete sentence, after all.
