On Frickin' Laser Beams

One of the laser printers at work has been acting up recently. A Clean sheet of labels goes in, then it comes out all stripy. Never mind for a second that I'm printing barcode labels, there are extra lines and splotches everywhere.

How is no one concerned by this?

It's a laser and it's not working properly. It is literally burning the page at random intervals and varying intensities and it thinks it's doing just fine.

Why? Why is no one worried about this. It's a misfiring laser beam. We arrest 14 year-olds for aiming a cheap pointer at blimps, but the malfunctioning laser robot doesn't raise an eyebrow. This was how Skynet took over, people. In, like, at least one of those timelines.

The point is, people, I'm never going to be able to take over an office with a malfunctioning laser printer, let alone the world.

To quote a great scientist, "The status is not quo."

Fucking. Dammit.
