watching The Usual Suspects
That's what I call the huge copier/printer just outside my office. Kayser Soze. It's evil. EVIL, I TELL YOU. Just when you think you can make a 40 or 50 or 300 page copy for your boss, this copier will decide to cross you.
Such a good movie.
When I worked at PBarn we wrapped fragile items in Giami paper. I called the machine Jason Giami.
We have to get all Office Space on our printer at work from time to time. At least, we want to.
Clear jam, take the whole stack of paper out, and flip it upside down, and backwards.
Copy paper is manufactured on a huuuuuge roll and then cut, and even though it looks flat, there's actually a slight imperceptable-to-the-human-eye curve to it. Some machines hate the curve, because they've been told to expect flat.
Then kick the damn thing. It deserves it for crossing you.
I can think of a few key appliances and people who shall henceforth be referred to as Keyser Soze, if only in my own little addled brain. Thanks for the idea.
