A Surge Of Dumbness

| MO, USA | Crazy Requests, Extra Stupid, Popular, Technology

(I work for a copier/printer repair company. We make one brand, but also work on others. A customer with one of the ‘other’ brands at a high school had a problem that had been going on for weeks; even the factory support was baffled. After yet another attempt, another teacher comes into the room.)

Teacher #2: “Your printer still isn’t fixed yet?”

Teacher #1: “No, these guys have no clue in how to fix things, I guess.”

Me: *fumes silently, with 15+ years of experience in the field while looking through yet another manual for something I haven’t tried yet*

Teacher #2: “Just where did you get that printer anyway?”

Teacher #1: “Oh, it was in the dumpster; the IT guys had thrown it out because it’d been hit in a power surge.”

Me: “Uhm, what did you say?”

Teacher #1: “Oh, yeah, I mean it looks brand new, so it should be good, right?””

Me: “…I’m sorry. I don’t think I can fix this. Here’s your bill.”
