“Computers were down at work. It took me 20 minutes to shuffle the cards to play solitaire”

Some employees play solitaire at work, such as during down time or on breaks. A joke was posted on Twitter by Burt on June 18, 2015:

“Our computers were down today, we had to do everything manually. It took me twenty minutes to shuffle the cards to play solitaire.”

“Does anyone remember playing solitaire with real cards?” is a related solitaire joke.
