Quirky co-workers?

The school secretary at my last job generally would yell at the teachers for asking her to make copies. And that's fine; I would have preferred to do it myself anyway. Thing of it is though: she wouldn't let us actually use the photocopier either. Consequently, I did most of my own copies after hours at Staples.

Had a coworker who was caught looking at internet porn within his first few weeks on the job. On a computer in a "common area", so how did he figure nobody would walk in and see what he was doing? Miraculously, he wasn't fired then. It was 2-1/2 years before he finally got the boot, I'll never understand how he lasted that long. He was in charge of placing and tracking purchase orders for the company. Purchase requisitions were always being lost or just buried under other papers on his desk and forgotten, until you reminded or resubmitted it again.

He was replaced by somebody even less competent, though not at all personally offensive like the first guy. The second guy was gone within 6 months.
