CC – Carbon copy

Monday, 15th of July

Working for an international company, I had to learn to work with their custom made software and I love the fact that we are usually up to date with global trends.

Living in the third world, I am used to working with numbered hard copy vouchers, certificates, receipts and their carbon copies. I think the whole supply of carbon paper has been sent to Africa at some stage, and you can be sure we use it! People just love filing papers in folders in this country I think. Any company or institution has a separate storage room for the accounts department just to store folders, folders and folders .. and did I mention folders?

That is strange sometimes. It results very often in me scanning papers and keeping them on file on my computer. If I move, my most priced possession will be my external hard drive.
