I Say the Darndest Things

Printing large documents, especially in color, takes time.  I like to allow 20 minutes or so, and I tell customers to go and come back later.  They are baffled by the idea that their printing is not instantaneous.  Here are some of my favorite answers as to why not:

- "It's a copy machine, not your fairy godmother."
- "Millions of copies are made.  Only a few make it out."
- " Machine copies take twenty minutes.  It takes longer if I paint them."
