It has been an interesting day to say the least. One of my co-workers N was having some trouble with the paper shredder. I stood in the copy room with him trying to get it to work when all of a sudden there was a huge flame of fire that came out of the shredder and onto N's face. Here is a picture of him at lunch:
As you can see all of his hair in the front was burned and he now has highlights. He said he was afraid to touch it until he got home because he didn't know how much hair would fall out. It really was one of the funniest things I have ever seen. I am sure I would feel differently if it happened to me. N has actually been a good sport about it and laughed with us while we are laughing at him. He did go to the doctor to be checked out because his nose and throat were burning, but he is OK. Although the Doctor did say that it was a very interesting story.
Someone did send him an email with this picture:
LOL. N really is being a good sport about the whole thing. At the end of the year we have an award for the biggest blooper and we decided that N is definitely going to get one.
The one thing that I can always count on at work is laughing. I did tell N that if we had gotten this on film we would probably win $10K from America's Funniest Home Videos. I asked if he would repeat what happened and he looked at me like I was crazy.
