Life Sucks When Your Printer Stops Working
Can there be a more exasperating experience in your daily grind than when you finish a major project, the one that will provide you with sufficient income for a month, and your printer refuses to print? I think not. There is something earth-moving about your printer failing in its task. The reality that you're THAT close to being done and cannot get to the finish line because that *&^%$#@ printer just won't print, can really push you over the edge! You become a quivering, frustrated-to-the-point-of-emoting-out-loud to a piece of plastic-with-metal-trim office equipment.
Your eyes water, but not from crying, because that would be TOO weird, but perhaps from the tenseness in your head just squeezing out the brain fluids. You become a tad off-balanced. You might decide that you really should reconsider Anger Management because at this moment, you could easily rip off the head of a charging rhino. You want to say, "This sucks!", but you wind up with a mouth full of expletives that splatter that blasted printer with invective after invective. The curses flow, but it doesn't seem to help.
Or, if you are the more docile type, controlled as it were, you will calmly go through all the steps your printer's manual suggests. You'll work from a higher pedestal in full control of your emotions and sanity. You might even hum softly as you troubleshoot the problem. I envy those people. I only wish I had that demeanor; like several printers ago would have been nice.
