Watch your arse at the office Xmas party!

According to a rather tongue-in-cheek (no extra pun intended!) article in Personnel Today this week, photocopier manufacturers are anticipating a 25 per cent rise in call outs over the festive period because of workers abusing the machines. The reason for an increase in call-outs is apparently due to staff sitting on photocopiers to make pictures of their bottoms!

Quotes from 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."

It's a short article, but more details can be found at Canon looks after bottom line with reinforced copiers (Mike Berry).
