WICHITA, KS — Employees at Sullivan’s Tire Emporium have never been terribly tech savvy, making this weekend’s news all the more puzzling. Erik Johansson, the head of IT at Sullivan’s, claims that the vast majority of employees in his company are unhappy with the brand-new Office for iPad app, but not for the reasons you might expect.

“As an IT administrator, you get used to passive-aggressive emails from your users over the weekend” claimed Erik. “It’s kind of a right of passage.”

When pressed on the events of the past weekend, Erik failed to come up with a logical explanation.puzzled guy

“Normally we’re trying to solve pretty common Microsoft issues, like an accidentally deleted email or converting Word files from one version to another. Stuff like that.”

“Well when we heard Microsoft was finally introducing Office for iPad we were really excited, this is something our users have been wanting for a while now. We knew this would be a big change, but we didn’t expect how upset everyone would be” Erik continued.

“Turns out, everyone is so used to all of the confusing features in Word and Excel, that they had no idea how to handle the simplified experience on the iPad. They actually thought we were trying to trick them! Five hours later and we were still trying to explain that, ‘Yeah…this is it.’”

The employees in question couldn’t be reached for comment, but we were able to get our hands on some quotes from the emails:

“Are you kidding me? It took Microsoft that long to come out with this?”

“I don’t know if you know this Nudella guy or whatever, but tell him I’m pissed.”
