Stupid Customer Tricks

While this IS about work, it's from another time and place. So it's OK. Sort of.

"Stupid Customer Tricks" refers to an occasion where a customer had tried putting a 9x12 Tyvek envelope into a laser printer so as to print an address thereon. It was rather surprising that the printer actually fed it in, but it never came out.

Tyvek is, under the right circumstances, as strong as steel. But when subjected to the high temperature of a laser printer's fuser, it melts as easily as wax. Needless to say, the service call was billable.

The customer in this case was stoopid, as was the "trick".

The moral of this story is that one should never trust a customer.
