The multifunction printer is the office workhorse. It prints. It copies. It scans. On occasion – often, an occasion too many – it also induces headaches on the part of staff.
The printer also doubles as a fantastic coffee table. Debate therefore started in the office the other day during a much needed coffee break. Outside daily business processes, what other uses does your office printer have?
Sure, health and safety means we wouldn’t recommend you take your office printer for a dip in the bath with you. Even so, here’s 4 of our favourite ideas that emerged during this meeting of RDT minds.
The office copier has long been associated with nefarious nocturnal activities. We’ll let the image do the talking from here …
2. A toaster
Toasties are perhaps the best way to keep your team fuelled and motivated. So why not butter up some bread, sprinkle in cheese, open up your printer’s scanning lid and toast away. You’ll be amazed at the results.
3. Swimming float
With the new Baywatch movie on the sandy horizon, the name David Hasselhoff has sounded of late with more frequency than “coffee please”. Picture the scene: Hoff running down the beach with a printer float under his arm. It’s almost worth feigning you’re in deep waters just to be rescued by the hairy-chested hero.
Watching the multifunction machine in our office, it was suddenly so clear. This device would never stop. It would never leave us. It would never hurt or shout, get drunk and come home late at night, or say it was too busy to spend time with us. It would always be there. Of all the would-be dates who came and went over the years, this thing, this machine was the only one that measured up. In an insane world, it was the perfect date.
The aforementioned suggestions are not recommended or advised by RDT Office Solutions Group Ltd. Any multifunction printer stunts were carried out under the supervision of highly trained experts.
Accordingly, RDT must insist that no one attempts to recreate, enact or use their printers as detailed in this article … even though your printer would make the best toasties in the world … shhh, you didn’t hear that from us.
