me: "I haven't had a really weird printer error in a while, this is nice"

my partner: "hey, I have this PDF where pages 7 and 8 won't print, help?"

looked at it on her machine and eventually found myself staring at traces in the Windows event log of the printer driver itself crashing

tried it on my machine, and instead _the printer itself printed out an error message on paper_

(I reprinted the same pages at 95% scale and it worked, even though I'd also told it to scale to fit the page)

patiently waiting for the NSA and/or some very bored internet person to identify my exact printer model from this, cross reference it with sales of printers and printer supplies, and show up at my house
