Give it a good swift kick, works in all the sitcoms.
Been There. Tried to make A copy at work once and after starting the machine, I noticed the counter was bumped from ‘1’ to ‘999’. I was able to stop it after close to 2 dozen copies.
It seems to be overstepping its boundaries…
I was in charge of the copier in one of my workplaces, following my LEO retirement. The constant complaint was that it was out of toner. The very dry air and the very new carpet in this office space allowed for environmental static electricity, so every complaint of no toner was a fix of take cartridge out, shake same vigorously, replace cartridge, continue printing.
Good use of the low on toner effect on the title bar and the speech bubbles.
Is this related to the toner out message on the printer when there is 100 more pages of toner?
Uh-oh! Looks like Rita has been working on the copier in some way.
Deja Moo. The feeling you’ve seen this bull before.
I was born in 1946. In elementary school they had mimeograph machines that made copies with blue printing that had the most wonderful sweet chemical smell. When we got fresh copies in class we all sniffed the papers. As for modern copiers, yesterday on the LAFF network (channel 66.2 here in Chicagoland) there was an episode of “3rd rock from the sun” where the copier went haywire and the Dick Solomon character beat it with a toner cartridge which broke and got carbon dust all over him from head to toe.
Mumford said we invent machines and they turn around and reinvent us.
This is a true story. Happened some years ago, and it was told to me. So, you’re hearing it ‘second-hand’.Seems there was this young intern. He was given the assignment to type up a report, (on an actual typewriter). He was given some blank paper to type the report on. After a while, he ran out of paper. He asked someone in the office if there was anymore typing paper. Someone told him to go to the copier and get the paper out of it and use that paper to finish typing.He walks over to the copier and stands there for a few minutes. He then enters ‘10’ for the Quantity and then presses the ‘Copy’ button. 10 sheets of blank paper come out and he grabs those ‘blank copies’ and uses that paper to type on.True story.
Oh no! Something’s wrong with the copier again!
