The next couple of days proved eventful as I tracked down a used copier on Kijiji in Lethbridge.
The conversation on the Phone was amusing …. ‘So I’m calling about your copier ‘ … ‘Yes? Ok great I’m about an hour out of the city (Lethbridge) and I’m just passing through …. but I need a copier… I’m using it as a camera and my Xerox broke down … can I stop by in one hour? … thanks!
And there it is, a thing of beauty. Well it worked for about 5 minutes and then … Paper Jam!
There was something shifty about the sale … ‘my wife wants a color one’ , he said … and then didn’t seem to want the money …
Wait a second ….. what is that in there …. ?
After about 45 minutes of roadside photocopier maintenance I had extracted 2 1/2 Cheerios and 1 piece of dog food … alien objects removed, copier ran like a top for the rest of the day.
It would be somehow wrong to say good by to the Xerox without a small tribute to its services …
