And, because he's on a roll:

There's an e-waste initiative happening at the moment (disposing of, that is, rather than generating - given my workplace, I feel that's a necessary distinction to make) and Ted E. has gotten wind of it. He rings up the coordinator and, cheerfully ignoring the parts of the notices that specify work equipment, kicks off the conversation with:

"Hi, I've got a Windows 98 computer at home. Can I bring it in and throw it out? It's got a virus."

(Note: I'm pretty confident he isn't referring to Windows 98)

Not content to rest on his laurels, however, he follows up - in all seriousness - with: "Or should I just put it into my recycle bin at home?"
