How stupid can some people get?

I just heard of the latest escalation in which an employee of the Belgian Royal Library, charged with scanning in a 14th century parchment, took the document, wax seals and all, and fed it through the ADF unit on a LJ9000LMFP. Not surprisingly, it got stuck.

Following the instructions of our technical support helpdesk, they managed to retrieve the priceless parchment, but not without tearing it. And now they want hp to pay damages?!

It's not about the money. All the money in the world couldn't put the document back the way it was. :(

Numbskull is about the right word for the philistine -- what was he/she thinking?

If this person had been asked to copy the Ghent Altarpiece, do you think theyw ould have chopped it up in order to fit it onto the photocopier?
