The Repair Shop
A man’s printer started printing more and more faintly, so he called a local repair shop.
A friendly young man informed him, “Well, you could bring it in for a cleaning, but we charge $50 for that, so you might be better off just reading the manual and trying the job yourself.”
Pleasantly surprised by this candor, the man said, “Thanks, son. Does your boss know that you discourage business?”
“Actually, it was my boss’s idea,” said the young employee. “He says that if we let people try to fix things themselves first, we end up making even more money!”
