Xerox - Mute Button
Summary: A presentation was printed in color cost effectively, which impresses the boss, but a mute button mishap ruins the moment.
Bob, part of the staff, is panicking because the presentation was printed in color, and he's worried it cost too much. Dave from IT assures Bob that it's a Xerox Work Centre, and prints color for pennies a page.
The meeting goes well, and the boss (who's talking over the speaker phone) is impressed. But Collette (a manager) presses the mute button on the phone and insults the boss. "You are shocked? Really? 'Cause we're shocked. Shocked you even get it, pal."
Then Dave peeks his head in the room, saying he came to fix the mute button. Then it sinks in that the boss heard everything. One of the other employees says "Bye bye bonus."
