I’m not going to go into all the gory details of what’s been happening around here in my personal non-blog life (because I do have one), but suffice it to say I could use some lightening up.
So, let’s laugh a bit, shall we?
Sometimes I wonder where my son gets the stuff rolling around in his head. He asked me, "When our copier/printer gets really old and we're going to get rid of it, can I sit on it and copy my butt?" I was surprised at the amount of thought he had put into this. I have to give him credit for planning ahead and for resisting instant gratification.
Or has he resisted? I had to get to the bottom of it over dinner, so to speak -
Me: "Seriously. You can never do that while I'm not home. If you sit on the copier glass, you'll break the whole thing. Please tell me you haven't already done it."
Sam, laughing hysterically while promising: "No, I've never done it."
This is a confession from a real copier repairman:
“Photocopier supplier Canon is warning customers to take better care of their office equipment during the Christmas period, claiming that the festive season traditionally leads to a 25 percent hike in service calls due to incidents such as the classic backside copying prank.
Such a stunt, a mainstay of the office party, often results in cracked glass on the copier, with 32 percent of Canon technicians claiming to have been called out to fix glass plates during the Christmas period after attempts to copy body parts went wrong.”
Those copy repairmen are definitely not paid enough. Guess Sam isn't the only one intrigued.
Ever done the “classic backside copying prank?” I know this shocks you, but this is one thing I have not done. YET. Need to get an office job first.
