Can you believe it? A new "state-of-the-art" paper shredder! They just can't stop buying gadgets in this company! But this one crowns all the gadgets we've had so far. It's voice-activated! Just earlier today, my boss said "Reopen Sesame", the shredder turned on, and then he shredded a handful of paper, and then walked away with a smug smile.
Or just an hour ago, my colleague wanted to show me you could activate it by saying anything you want! He said "Open the gates of hell!", and the shredder turned on! (He then proceeded to shred some old hall passes from his son's middle school). This thing could probably shred anything!
And I got confirmation of this, someone from HR came and threw an egg sandwich in the "paper" shredder, he then said something about "Awaken, great eldritch beast" or whatever. And, woudn't you know, the egg sandwich got turned into small filaments and bits of what it used to be!
Now's my time to use it! Uhm.. "Activate!". A-ha! It's working! Now what to shred... Let's start with some pape-
B: Looks like he didn't read the manual for the shredder, but to think a simple error would blow up the whole building...
C: Some companies just want to watch the world burn, and some others make the world burn by using extremely complicated devices that blow up at the slightest problem.
B: But, what happened, what was the error?
C: Oh? Did you not understand how the shredder worked?
B: Well, no. How did the shredder work, and why did it not work the last time?
