Notices That I Don't Heed

Our ice machine at work in the break room got a little noisy here awhile back.  Most of us paid it no mind, and learned to deal with it. Well, we had some "newer" people move into our area of the cube-farm and apparently one of them decided they didn't like the noise. So much so, they took it upon themselves to put this sign on the machine.

They wanted everyone to go to the cafeteria. Are you kidding me? The cafeteria is clear across the building. Where does this person get the nerve to inconvenience EVERYONE because they don't like the noise? We all learned to deal with it. Shut up and put your headphones on.

Needless to say, I made sure that I got my ice out of this machine.....and I giggled my fat ass off every time I did it. The entire time it went "RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR," I had the biggest smile on my face. I also made sure I paid a visit to the machine at least 3 times a day.  The best part was that the machine wasn't the best at keeping up with the demand for ice, so people would stand there and hold the button for 20-30 seconds to get the amount of ice they needed for their beverages. I went the "extra mile" and made sure I did it for at least 40-50 seconds. It was my way of saying "F You" to whoever this self-righteous SOB was.
I mean really.

In further hilarity, someone took the sign down the very same day it went up, so I figured the company was saying "screw you" to the complainer(s) as well. I continued my droning ice machine procedure for a few weeks more until sadly, our maintenance guys replaced it with a quieter one.

So now we have a quiet ice machine.
I still giggle when I get ice though.
