I’ve had to clean that up before. Near impossible. Like liquid, that toner.
Never feeding the copier chipotle again.
Our copier is broke this morning…the repair guy just showed up…I think I’m going to share…
Toner — gross. Almost looks like mold. :shudder:
Looks like someone threw a toner cartridge then tried to make it look like the copier did it. My CSI investigative experience tells me that the splatter is not consistent with a violent copier-toner explusion, but rather with the human intervention–probably of a disgruntled employee–who lobbed the cartridge into the air causing it to explode on the carpet as you see here. Possibly in an effort to cover the white footprints said employee may have accidentally put on the carpet when jumping down from the ceiling after having unwittingly walked in wet paint which he stored on the second floor but which got spilled during his escape after stealing the store’s wall safe. He had used the paint to cover the drywall repair he made where the safe used to be, hoping no one would notice. The boss unexpectedly returned because he forgot his coffee cup and the perpetrator had to quickly hide the paint can and himself. Finding no place to hide, he put the paint up in the acoustic suspended ceiling and climbed up there to hide.
Not realizing the ceiling was not meant to hold a man’s weight, he lost his footing momentarily and this caused the paint can to turn over. As he realigned himself he stepped in the wet paint. After the boss left, the perp jumped down out of the ceiling to make his exit with the safe. As he was leaving with the safe, he saw the foot prints and tried to hide them by faking a Xerox malfunction.
By testing all employees’ shoes for paint residue and their lungs for toner powder, we will have our case closed in no time. Thank you. Thankyouverymuch.
Haha. Thank you.
