A Couple of True & Not So True Humerous Copier Incidents

Copier Humor!

Just a short blog I found this evening on the old blog site.  Thought this would give every one a few chuckles!
Funny copier stuff is a recent thread on the P4P Hotel Message Boards.  Like to share a few with everyone.
Young Executive

A young executive was leaving the office at 6 pm when he found the CEO standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in hand.

“Listen,” said the CEO, “this is important, and my secretary has left. Can you make this thing work?

“Certainly,” said the young executive. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.

“Excellent, excellent!” said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the machine. “I just need one copy.”

Special Thanx to John from Paducah for this next one:

I installed and trained an Aficio 3035 yesterday to a Sheriff's Office. One of the ladies (who is a true blonde) was asking questions on the yellow key. I instructed her that before you make copies, to press the button to first clear any job that was previously run. I thought she understood that. When I was following up today, I was told by one of the other clerks that what she understood, was that you press the yellow button after every copy made!!
She was trying to run 25 stapled sets of a 10 page file, and was pressing the yellow button every time it made a copy. They said it took her about 3 hours to run the job, and someone finally told her that the only time you press the button is before you start to make copies, not during. I thought you guys would enjoy a "blonde moment."

On a cold call I stopped in at a doctors office.   The Office Manager was so glad to see me.  She said that she was having fax issues and every time they received a fax it jammed.  I told her I wasn't a tech but I would take a look.

She escorted me to the fax and I looked down to see some questionably cheap paper.  I simply asked if she had tried changing paper.  She said "I don't have any control of the paper the hospital sends when they fax me."  OooooK.  She obviously didn't understand the question.  So I rephrased it.  No I mean the paper you buy to put in the fax.  I got the same response.  In my mind suddenly I saw a piece of paper shooting through a phone line and coming out on the fax.

I told her I had no idea what the problem was (besides she was crazy) but I didn't say it.  I left the office in a hurry thinking my boss would kill me if I sold them something.
