Hmmmm...Had an "Office Space" moment tonight...
 
On my stupid printer.

The offender:

Randomly says its offline when its clearly on, makes you reinstall it almost everytime you try to use it and prints terribly.

The aftermath:

I had the same issue! My printer was on and it said it was offline - I tried and tried. This was four days ago. My computer was shut off and an hour ago it printed.. What is up with that????

Haha I have no idea but you have much more willpower then me to not destroy yours!

Well at least you got to let off a little steam.

Our printer did this several times to my hubby when he was trying to print something important he had to take to a meeting. He smashed the printer, I knew it was gonna happen! He bought a new one, lol.

Haha yeah my bf works at Staples, so he's bringing me home a new one! I swear printers are one of the worst electronics

I agree-we put in new ink, then it wouldn't print, so we use it to make copies, as the printer that works takes different ink & it's got "new" ink also.

xD That is fantastic.
Next time, invite me?! ;D

Priceless - I've certainly had days like this. I swear those things are programmed to self-destruct after the warranty expires.

Zex, I'll let you know next time I have something to destroy :)

So true, my bf actually paid for the protection plan with the new one, and right before its up, unless this new printer is somehow a god among printers and doesnt suck at life...we'll have an "accident" with it so we can trade it in LOL
