Tragedy at COPYCATS Media

The world of CD duplication suffered a tragic loss today.

On his way to the Dunwoody College cafeteria for an un-tantalizing lunch, sales rep Justin Kristal made the fatal error of trying to skip a step without properly securing his footing. With only three steps left to clear, Justin found himself falling like Liu Kang descending into the pit of spears after being finished by Reptile. Luckily, he was able to brace himself on the counter in at the bottom of the stairwell and save a little face.

After collecting himself, he kept saying how nauseous he felt and that he was going to faint.  I personally have never seen anyone lose the color in their face so quickly.  However, Justin valiantly pressed on with Chris and I. 

The valor had run out by the time we reached the doors of Dunwoody.  Justin decided it was in his best interest to make his way back to the offices of COPYCATS Media. Looking on in bewilderment, Chris and I couldn’t help but chuckle. Justin walked back in what appeared to be a drunken stupor.

His office mates were befuddled as he staggered to his cubicle.  Sales rep Adam Wachter reported that he was sweating profusely.

Justin’s morale seemed to improve after a plateful of General Tso’s chicken and rice.  But after lunch, he noticed his ankle had started to swell and was bruising around the ball of his foot. Panic began to set in.  He acted quickly to wrap the ankle. Without having proper first-aid materials, he was forced to use two frozen microwave dinners that had been in our freezer for years, some paper towels, and packaging tape to wrap up his ankle and suppress the swelling.n1302459783_261041_5174

Throughout this afternoon of incessant whining, the crew at COPYCATS Media has given up on Justin and started planning his funeral arrangements.  His threshold for pain is simply too low and we don’t think he’ll last much longer.  Perhaps some would say we’re all overreacting, but I think we’re just preparing for the inevitable. 

Justin’s spirits have lifted knowing that his co-workers care enough to handle his arrangements.  So far, all we have arranged is a casket made of insulation stuffed inside a Chiquita Banana box wrapped with twine to hold him inside.
