Please do not feed the printers
Another joyous day of tickets today, though at least today’s made sense:
I’ll be honest, this sort of ticket is not my highest priority during the day, so it was a few hours later, and after a particularly tasty lunch, that I went off to investigate the problem. Little did I know that the problem itself would be food-related.
When I arrived, I went straight for the innards of the printer. Lines on pages are usually caused by something on one of the rollers, so I pulled the toner cartridge out and opened it up. Sure enough, I could see inside it a small, crumpled piece of plastic stuck to the roller, surrounded by clumps of toner.
A quick trip back to my office to retrieve some tweezers, and the culprit was soon revealed.
It was a sticker from a Golden Delicious apple.
I returned to the user’s office and enquired as to whether she liked apples. Clearly her printer loves them, though they do give it indigestion.
