A humorous post at BerryReview, claims that a copier has jammed on the fourth floor of the company’s headquarters — located in Waterloo, Ontario — causing such a stir that RIM employees destroyed it.
They didn’t just throw it away, however, according to the report. The employees went to a field and destroyed it by taking part in a ritual ceremony. The technicians ran into some problems as a result of the copier fiasco as well.
“Compounding RIM’s difficulties, the technicians got all inky-black stuff on their hands, so that soap and water had to be applied, then rinsed off, followed by a drying procedure which is believed to have involved either toweling or one of those noisy air blowers,” according to BerryReview.
