Random Quote #73 topic: miscellaneous, It has everything that doesn't fit in other categories.

I was working at the help desk when a secretary called saying she was having
problems with her printer. It was apparently spitting out "weird characters." I
went down to her office thinking I would just have to replace the printer
driver, so while she was taking a call, I did so and sent a test page through.
No problems. I left her a note and left while she was still on the phone.
No more than ten minutes later, I got a call from the same woman. She was having
the same problem. I went down to see and asked her to show me what she was
doing. She proceded to double-click on a file, and the file came up with binary
data. Then she hit 'print' before I could stop her. I removed the print job,
told her that the printer would, in fact, not print out binary data in English,
and went to the printer to collect the few pages that had printed before the job
was cancelled.
At the printer, I noticed a huge stack of paper, approximately 1500 sheets.
These printers only hold 500 -- while the printer was spitting out page after
page of garbage, she kept refilling the tray.
