Five million Canadian office workers have “seriously wanted to kick or hit” their office photocopiers, and one in 10 admit to laying a little street justice on their machines, according to a recent Ipsos-Reid survey.

The Hewlett Packard (Canada) Ltd.-sponsored study found that 48 per cent of women reported fighting back the urge to sock their copiers, versus only 37 per cent of men. But men were to likely to have acted out their copier rage.
