Copy Machines

Anyone who has ever used a copy machine knows that they break, a lot. If your car broke that often, you'd show up for work late every day. Copy machine companies sell "service contracts" to keep your copier working. You pay them a flat rate and they fix it, regardless of what's wrong with it.

What you don't know is that each copy machine is programmed with a hidden self destruct sequence. If the right combination of keys is pressed, like 1401, the self destruct is set and the copy machine breaks itself on the next page. It really doesn't matter how, like say someone wants one copy, and then someone wants forty copies, and then, someone else just makes one. BOOM. Self Destruct. But when you get the service contract, they turn off the self destruct code.

Some of the newer copy machines keep track of how fast you push the buttons. If you seem to be in a real hurry, the machine will jam the paper. I've noticed this on many occasions.
