Gee, you mean that didn’t fix it??

I went over to grab my sheets from the big Xerox printer, but nothing was there.
“Did you get my email?” Geico piped up.
“Nope, but I’m assuming the printer’s down,” I replied, looking at the numerous indicator lights on the display, all of which were flashing.
“Yeah, it stopped working. I tried to fix it” — he demonstrated for me, slamming his two hands down so that almost all the buttons were pressed simultaneously and repeating the motion several times — “but it didn’t work.”
It took every ounce of self control I had not to *facepalm* right in front of him.
I should tell him to just kick the bottom next time; it’s less likely to throw the machine into a fatal tizzy.
What brilliant fixes have people in your office demonstrated for you?
