This printer is almost identical to mine. For all intents and purposes, let’s just say it’s the same. I bought it from a VERY helpful and knowledgeable OfficeMax employee named Dan. I’m very loyal to OfficeMax. I like being familiar with the layout and product line of a store. I can shop in unfamiliar stores, but for office supplies, it works just fine to stick with OfficeMax, and eschew Office Depot and Staples. Another thing I have typically eschewed is extended warranties. I’ve bought a few, but never used one. Today I decided to utilize the benefits of the e.w. I bought for this printer. So far, I have found out that I have a replacement plan, not a service plan; they reimburse me the original cost of the printer, but not until after I ship it back to them and then they issue a store credit for the cost, so guess who’s without a printer for minimum two weeks; and if I want to *fix* the machine, I’m on my own. So, what to do.
The issue is the yellow ink. And while the black ink may be extremely cost-efficient, the company makes up for it in the price of the colored ink. I traded in a printer at the time of purchase, so I would already be getting back $50 less than the purchase price, and I have found out that OfficeMax no longer carries this product.
What do I want? I want this printer to work. Knowing that helps me decide exactly the course of action to take.
Voted today. Got the sticker. My favorite part of voting, honestly, is seeing a friend of mine who works my polling place. It’s always nice to catch up with her, and today she was making a beautiful quilt for a baby. “You know how you get invited to baby showers at the last minute, and you don’t have time to make something nice?” she asks. Oh, yes, I say. But the truth is, I don’t know when I last went to a baby shower. Been kinda out of the loop for awhile.
Continuing to set up my new office. Wishing my girl Val was a squeakier wheel. She has been dealing with allergies, especially in her room, for quite some time. Today, I finally figured out that it’s probably very dusty in here. Brought the air purifier down here and am enjoying being able to breathe. (I, too, am allergic to dust). Actually, Val was probably squeaky enough, and I just didn’t give that squeaky wheel grease. Sometimes it takes me awhile to catch on.
And a weather update: Had spring on Sunday, winter on Monday, and we’re back to spring on Tuesday. That’s Ohio for you. This year, anyway.
