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????

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

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

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 going to happen! He bought a new one, lol.

I am not here to promote anythingNo, that's not true, I am here to promote everything equestrian and everyone enjoying horses!

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.

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

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
