    Angry Stupid Printer

    This is sooooo OT but I'm PO'd so FU.

    Ever since he opened his new laptop on Christmas Eve, my dad has been trying to get it working with the networked printer. I never use the printer but for whatever reason it resides in my room.

    So today he came upstairs and asked if anything had printed. I looked up and said, "No. Should I turn it on?"

    Well judging by the look on his face, apparently he thought it had been on the whole time. I couldn't help but laugh. Unable to blame anyone but himself, he proceeded down the stairs in the most quietly enraged state imaginable. Hopefully he's cooled down by now.

    Meanwhile I'm sitting here as the machine prints out a seemingly endless supply of random ASCII characters due to the number of troubleshooting attempts my dad has made over the last few days.

    I'm not kidding. It's been printing for a few hours. (I'm reusing the paper)

    Too bad he just didn't delete the jobs in the print queue.

    Funny stuff!

    I thought of that, but I was too lazy to go check. Especially if I would've gotten all the way downstairs, only to find out he's got a password on there. Besides, it was printing fast... must've been draft quality, so barely any ink.
