I’m working as a service rep for a large copier company. A customer calls.

Cust: “My typewriter acts strange. When I type a letter, a totally different one is typed.”

Me: “A letter from a nearby key? Did a paper clip or a staple fell in it?”

Cust: “No. I could get different letters from all over the keyboard, everytime I press the same key.”

Me: “Weird I’ll come by.”

Gets in, sits at her desk, and there’s a very familiar odor. I get my nose closer to the keyboard of the typewriter.

Cust: “Oh… I spilled some coffee over it this morning but I wiped it off quickly. Could it be the cause?”
