Ten Reasons Why I Hate My Printer

  1. It prints only a five pages before running out of ink.
  2. A new black ink cartridge costs £20.
  3. If it runs out of colour ink, it won’t print out in black.
  4. A colour ink cartridge costs £9000.
  5. You have to order new ink only from the manufacturer, which takes about a month to arrive.
  6. The ink runs out before it gets here.
  7. Even when the ink is full, it won’t print out without first doing a “cleaning” that uses half of the ink.
  8. Sometimes the printer thinks the cartridge is a fake when it isn’t, so it won’t let it print out anything.
  9. It’s cheaper to melt some gold and use that as ink.
  10. If you leave your printer for more than a week, the ink dries out, gumming up the machine, forcing you to buy a new one.
