Grad sends warning to manager: Be nice to our kit and it'll be nice to you


Copier warning

I've seen this on a few copiers over the years, seems to be in line with others' observations:

"Copier Warning!!"

This machine is subject to breakdowns during periods of critical need

A special circuit in the machine called a "critical detector" senses the operator's emotional state in terms of how desparate he or she is to use the machine. The "critical detector" then creates a malfunction proportional to the desparation of the operator. Threatening the machine with violence only aggrevates the situation. Likewise, attempts to use another machine may cause it to also malfunction. They belong to the same union. Keep cool and say nice things to the machine. Nothing else seems to work
