Misuse of office equipment

#1
Say this..er..friend of mine used a laminating machine to ensure that the usable life of some "paperwork" was extended, would that be classed as misuse of the machine? If I fed my beret through it or some such thing that that would clearly be irresponsible, but surely laminating art pamplets is preserving them for future generations, and therefore to be applauded.

No?

So have you been sacked for laminating vintage erotica then?

I suppose it really comes down to whether you can reasonably prove that it is indeed art and not anything else..

If you were just laminating a bit of paper then why not - it's cheaper than photocopying it and then laminating it (by 5p) and gives the item an air of palimpsest. Maybe your employer is a bit retentive or just having relationship issues - maybe you (or erm, your friend..) should see this as an oppurtunity.

Wipe-clean porno mags sounds like a grand idea!
I and 2 others have already patented wipe-clean porn. The idea for such a wonderful product was thought up in Batus 2003. Charlie and Simon are the other two to thank.

We even had an advertising slogan

"Wipe-clean Porn, for the W@nker in your Life"

We then were going on to produce a "Porno Top Trumps" type card game; sadly the business model wasn't the best. :D

Fecking hell, I'd love to see the faces over on BBC2 "Dragons Den" with that idea being presented to them :twisted:

I know...err...one friend who has trimmed, laminated, double sided, map pocket sized porn. For those lonely moments in the turdis on Ops/Ex.

Very handy.

Alledgedly.

All office equipment is open to abuse! Though the scalies tend to trace anything too outrageous on the phones or t'internet....

Stealing from the Army, perfectly acceptable (within reason). Obviously if you've robbed something as big as a laptop you're on a bit of a sticky wicket.............

(God, those arrse SMIT lessons never leave you) :oops:

I say, the Banner catalogue is purely there to save one a trip to Staples....
Yes, when the new one comes out it's that "Most Wonderful Time of the Year"!

I hope this isn't going into another stationary thread...........

It was that time of year, "Use it or lose it". I was urged to just buy and old stuff to use up the budget. While everyone else had lists as long as your arm I simply asked for a £1500 shredder for home use. I was refused!
