Is it time to summon a priest?

Today at work, I saw something that made me laugh:

I waked into the "teacher's lounge" and saw four people: my boss DeReau, my supervisor Frances, James the Music Teacher and Gary the operations assistant all sitting around a vaccuum cleaner that was laying on it's back. They all had serious expressions on their faces. Gary was kneeling next to it and trying to figure out what was wrong. When I walked in, they all muttered a quick "hey" and turned their attention back to the vaccuum. After seeing this, I kept in my laughter not sure if it was appropriate to giggle.

James finally asked Gary, "Is it dead?"

Gary responded with, "Yeah, it's gone, man."

"What are we going to do? We were counting on that vaccuum cleaner. " Frances said.

"I guess we're going to have to get a new one." DeReau concluded.

"Man, I wish there was something I could do to help it." Gary said, "But it's too late."

At that, I left the room. The loss of the vaccuum cleaner brought our morale down for the rest of the day.
