    Canon looks after bottom line with reinforced copiers
    December 2005
    Photocopier manufacturers are anticipating a 25% rise in call outs over the festive period because of workers abusing the machines.
    Manufacturer Canon said a third of its technicians called out over the Christmas period have to deal with the consequences of staff sitting on photocopiers to make pictures of their bottoms.
    In response, the company has increased the thickness of the glass on the machines from 3mm to 4mm to take the strain.
    David Smith, marketing director at Canon UK, said: “People obviously let their hair down at Christmas time and the photocopier tends to get a bit of extra-curricular activity.”
    “I had to repair a machine with a photocopy of a man’s groin jammed in it,” said Canon technician Steven Mannion. “The manager suggested an office identity parade to see who Canon could charge for the call-out.”

    Copiers face Christmas cheek

    The festive tradition of what repairmen call “rear-end copying” – office staff jumping on photocopiers to record their nether regions for, ahem, posterity – raises callouts over Christmas by a quarter, says Canon, the copier maker. To help to cope with the extra load it has increased the thickness of the glass on its machines by a millimetre. A survey of 600 technicians showed that a third of Christmas work was on broken glass or paper jams of embarrassing images.
