Assorted more woes (hey, nonny nonny!)

People sometimes vandalize or destroy bits of the stuff they work with. Things like writing on the calendar to cross off past months or circle paydays -- that's minor. That's perfectly understandable. But stuffing trash in your computer tower, etching lewd commentary on the plastic desk cover, and half-destroying vital equipment -- why?

Today I wound up filling out a booth-out form with "Booth usable. Network jack dangling & dismembered (mangled almost beyond recognition)." (Yes, I got photos. No, they're probably not very good. Yes, I'll try and get better ones. Yes, I'll try and get a photo of an intact jack for comparison.)

Still. Why? It does give me the excuse to write up hilarious equipment problem forms, but I'd far rather have a boring day than have to come up with witty phrases to describe the way one phone goon has shredded any number of equipment bits...
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
