Is there paper in the printer? Yes and it's so neatly wrapped!

"Apparently it was a management money saving policy to keep all the photocopiers empty because it they had paper in them people would use them more."

Back in the 1980s I had to spend some time at HQ shortly after the company had been taken over by a very large corporation.

The new owners had instigated a drive to get everything documented. As a result, every single photocopier in the building was running low on toner and the printer ribbons were at the end of their useful life,

Fortunately my girlfriend offered me the use of the printers at her place of work to do some decent looking reports for a large customer.
