Dear MMA,

Husband, as you know, laser printing has been your business for over a decade. During your tenure, we have been without printing capability at home for about 5 of those years (on and off.) Case in point, remember the time you snatched the printer from our home because a customer wanted a good used work horse just like it? As I recall, I didn't get another one for more than a year. I had to borrow (gasp) an ink-jet from my SIL to hold us over. The cobblers children, as they say, go without shoes.

I know, you do not sell laser printers, per se, for a living. Still. I know you are the kind of man that takes care of your business. I bragged all about it here. Let's pretend I am your customer and I need to place a
big, big, order. But this order is contingent on having a machine to print with.

Please hook me up with reliable at home printing so I can continue to turn the fabulous money saving tricks at the store which require me to print online coupons. Its a hobby I enjoy and it anti-costs us money and I missed out on some great deals these last couple of weeks.

If an all-in-one fax, scanner, printer were to make its way into our home, I would treat it like a member of our
very family!

Signed,
Your Superstar

Desperation is painful to witness.

She is at her best when she is saving money! You know this!

PS - A pretty printer equals a Happy Helper. :) I hope you get your request. You KNOW how slow those "tech stores" can respond.

Oh Lilly!
I feel your pain. I always ask Jeff if he's ever heard the saying "The cobbler's children have no shoes" He never answers. I just got my printer hooked up two weeks ago. Holla! I'll put Jeff on it. ~ Julie
