As the Spada office printer works overtime and is often queued up with documents, I had the bright idea of relieving its workload by installing an old printer found in the cupboard onto my super new laptop.
Forty-five wasted minutes later and I’m still no better off. I had it on good authority that all worked ‘fine’ before the HP was retired and everything was checked and double checked; the right software disc was even found. Why won’t it work? Why?!
As the years roll on, I find it increasingly difficult to handle these sorts of technology failures with any sort of decorum. So I smashed it up before chucking it in the skip outside. I may have lost three quarters of an hour, but the satisfaction of destroying something that once cost a lot of money was priceless.
