  • I remember a sun technician who was a practitioner of the "tall" tale. One day he was on a repair when an administrative assistant asked him a question about printers and toners.

    She asked why is it when you shake a toner, the next couple of pages will have some smudging?

    He said: Well if you look inside of a toner you will see these tiny rows that hold each letter. Some letters are used more then others. Take "e" for example. When a row runs low that is why you get low toner warnings. When you shake the toner all the letters get thrown around and some break like an "e" will become a "c." The broken pieces are what create that smudge you see.

    She asked is there anything we can do to make sure they are all used? He told her she could purchase a letter refill kit.

    She thought about it and said her boss probably wouldn't allow for the expenditure.

    He then suggested that she use the toners from the graphics department since they tend to not use letters as much.

    He left and the next day he got a call from his contact. He told him she was separating toners into two piles. Graphics and regular!

    I asked him if she was a blond and he simply smiled and said she also had great assets.
