    Re: What is the dumbist customer comment/question you've heard?

    I had a customer complain to me while installing a brand new MP6000...

    "Oh.. you always here fixing this thing its ALWAYS jamming....." then stormed off..

    I said to the lady sitting next to the machine in a strangled voice and dropped to my knees... "but but its new...." at least she laughed.

    One other years ago on a Sharp SF760 master machine. I walked in introduced myself and said I was here to do a PM on their copier and this silly young lady bales me up and yells at me the light keeps coming on every 8000 copies and to make sure it didn't come back on again.... it was the PM light she was complaining about.

    I had one customer that gave me a bit of grief once and they had a Mita DC313Z that played tunes when ready. The tunes were driving them nuts they asked if I could turn it off. (You can) I said "No... but I can change it...." so every time I went I changed it to the next one.

    They loved me :-)

    Oh this is a classic and it was said by a tech I was training..

    We were working, doing a PM, on a Mita DC4055 showing this guy the ropes....
    I nice young lady well presented and quite pretty, politely asked how much longer did we expect to be as she had some important copying to do.....

    Before I could say anything the noob tech said "6 inches....."

    Beats my standard reply of 2 hours I guess ;-)

    I reckon the guy who thought "Replace Toner" on a Kyocera FS3750 meant to re-place the toner was the most stupid of them all.

    He had literally taken the toner out and placed it back in the machine....and couldn't understand why the machine still told him to "Replace Toner" !!

    I remember that machine (Shudders) and yes, it used an OCR programing sheet.

No you twat, someone in this very office HAS BROKEN THE COPIER AGAIN, THE DON'T BREAK THEMSELVES!!!)
    Quiet possibly the most horrendous thing I have ever seen was on an old Canon 9800....... 5pm - Dec 20th 1997...... Get a call from a customer (HSBC in St. Albans UK, wasn't called HSBC at the time, but I digress) "Can an engineer come out, we have a problem with the copier"..... Why of course, nothing I would like more than to come out and look at your copier at home time...... I asked if it could wait until the morning, apparently not, its VERY urgent...... OK I said.

    Get to the customer, and there is an ambulance outside, and a fire engine.....

    Went to the reception, found out that a rather large bottomed lady had got drunk at the office christmas party, and decided to copy her ample ass on the copier..... the glass broke, her ass got wedged with large shards of glass sticking in from all directions. She couldnt be hoisted out as that was just causing her to get more glass in her ass, they couldnt take the glass out for obvious reasons.

    I ended up having to strip the whole copier down around her, even parts of the frame, all covered in blood and a fat girl crying.

    Copier was condemned, girl never came back to work apparently

    So, let this be a lesson, dont get pissed and copy your ass, especially if youre over a certain weight
    OK. I just snorfed my beer reading that!

    had someone give out my office phone number out as her fax number, when I asked her why she said it right there on the sticker "for service call"

    I went on about my business a few minutes latter hear another loud noise followed be a few choice words looked around corner and there was toner from the top of copier all way to floor and all over the lady who was trying to install toner Shortly I hear vacuum running I then decide maybe I would offer my advice asked her if I could help she said no everything was ok then told her she had a part missing from her machine she said no I donít I have changed toner in this machine for years and I know what I am doing I then tried to explain that the developer unit need to be installed then one toner She then informs me she can not install other tank I told her I would try and install it for her she then said you can not install it either Still not giving up I ask her why could I not try and install it for her She then said will if you must know last week when it said out of toner I removed both toners and threw them in trash With that I left and finished up on my machine
    As I was leaving I hear this lady on phone with someone just ranting about how she had ordered toner and they had sent her wrong part Sad part since it is a state office my tax money will be spent for a new developer unit for that machine
    Customer called " We sent the Wrong Toner" ARM350/450. I get there with one toner in hand. Open up the front door, and quickly notice the toner is still in the machine. However the DV box is missing. I asked where did she put the old "toner cart"? She pointed to a large trash bin next to a table ( Now for the best part ). Another employee was at the table removing staples from large stacks of papers......... Yep you guessed it......... throwing them in the trash bin. I rushed over to rescue the DV box. Only to discover the magroller is covered in pulled staples ( i almost cried ). I called my manager to see if we had one in the shop, but my luck had just ran out ( I did cry ). After spending almost two hours pulling staples out of that DV box. Then explaining too the customer what she had done. All she had to say was "Did you bring us the right toner this time"?

    Strippers...... Do you know how hard it is to get all that DAMN glitter out of a machine?

    The dumbest customers are the ones that constantly break their machine simply trying to remove a jam!
    Let us eat, drink, and be merry, because tomorrow we may die!

    I spent 2010 at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan, repairing equipment for the military. We had a couple of copiers come back from forward operating bases with bullet holes through them. I have always wondered whether they were Taliban bullets or if the clerk really hated the copier!
