Can You Fix It?

Can You Fix It?

Isn’t it aggravating when the printer jams and you don’t know how to fix it? We think so, too. Instead of unleashing a thorough beat down ala the "Office Space" fax machine scene, why not learn the correct (and less violent) way to fix the problem?

Employers are getting sick of being summoned to fix mishaps like a paper jam or a clogged toilet. You know how to save the company money, why not save them from a tough paper jam? When you're starting a new job, you might want to learn a few handy tricks so you can quickly become the office hero. You'll want to learn how to:

* Use and fix a fax machine.

* Fix a paper jam in the copy machine or the printer.

* Unfreeze the computer (you'll get a bonus if you can do it on a PC and a Mac).

* Mail a package (believe it or not, this is tough for some people).

* Unclog a toilet.
