    Talking Technicians, stanley blades and 'empty' ink cartridges

    So I'm happily minding my own business on the phone when I turn around to find my technician has had a slight 'accident'.

    May the ribbing begin!

    BTW - This is after washing it off his hands (and face!)

    Can you not ask your technicians to have their ties done up properly Ric? Looks so unprofessional!

    I think cyan ink beats you there... although the kids had all gone by the time this happened.

    Last week i went to check out an old konica minolta printer... the blue cartridge was empty, but they had to print urgently... So i proceeded to shake the cartridge to get that extra bit of life out of it, unfortunately it exploded all over my crotch. No pics but I wouldn't make it up!

    Aye - fair play. I'm sat here roasting and can't wait to get out in the fresh air. Wish I could undo my tie but the HT goes on every minute of every day about kids not having ties done up, so I suppose I should set an example.

    Better cyan toner than red blood

    ... or green blood for that matter!

    Unfortunately I haven't got any pics but last year I asked one of my techs to change a toner cartridge in the room next door. He thought I meant the photocopier in a different room and released the toner bottle which proceeded to cover the copier, carpet, walls and of course (the most amusing part) him. He then came back into the office covered in toner asking for help. :-)

    The nearest I've got is splitting my trousers while lifting a laser printer. The really annoying thing is that it wasn't even our printer, it belonged to our sister school.

    Had to send the rest of the day sat down.

    EDIT: I have also managed to cover myself with the foam they use to fill fridges.

    Yesterday I was just congratulating myself on having managed to keep hold of a pen for a whole week (I left it sitting on a note stating that I would curse their computers if they stole it) when a box of CDs fell off the shelf above my head and landed on the pen and it EXPLODED!
    Luckily it was one of those handwriting pens so the ink washes off - it was all over me, the desk, the floor, and my server
    The headteacher thought it was very funny
    Me? Not so much!

    I once wanted to see if an epson I think it was cart was empty by blowing into the vent hole in the top of it.

    As you can guess there was plenty of ink left in it.

    Only went all over the desk of the heads pa which thankfully was easy enough to clear up.
