Just can't cope? This can help!

Somewhere,  in the Montgomery County area, in an office that must remain secret, there is a machine ... nay, more than one ... that we all could use. Yes, as you see by this sign, this office has COPING machines!
And as anyone who has ever worked in an office ... or anywhere, for that matter -- or never worked outside the home -- will tell you, we ALL need coping machines.
In this office, for some unknown reason, one of these coping machines somehow broke down, and this note had to be attached. What made this coping machine unable to cope? Was a certain person's  problems just too much to handle?
And how DO these coping machines function? Does a person have to speak into them, telling the machine of his or her dire straits? Is it fed the information through a computer? Is it, dare we dream, simply able to magically read your mind?
And why don't we all have these coping machines? We certainly could use them, especially when Monday morning rolls around!
But, with my luck, I would wind up with this unfortunate machine, which obviously could just no longer cope. Mine would be the one with the tearful sign attached: Use other coping machine.

We can only hope someone ... or some coping machine ... was able to come to this machine's rescue.
Fare thee well, oh coping machine!
