Guide to Safe Fax

[This is a piece of current folk literature, taken from the Internet.]


Q: Do I have to be married to have safe fax?
A: Although married people fax quite often, there are many single people who fax complete strangers every day.

Q: My parents say they never had fax when they were young and were only allowed to write memos to each other until they were twenty-one. How old do you think someone should be before they can fax?
A: Faxing can be performed at any age, once you can learn the correct procedures.

Q: If I fax something to myself, will I go blind?
A: Certainly not, as far as we can see.

Q: There is a place on our street where you can go and pay to fax. Is this legal?
A: Yes. Many people have no other outlet for their fax drives and must pay a "professional" when their need to fax becomes too great.

Q: Should a cover always be used for faxing?
A: Unless you are really sure of the one you are faxing, a cover should be used to insure safe fax.

Q: What happens when I incorrectly do the procedure and I fax prematurely?
A: Don't panic. Many people prematurely fax when they haven't faxed in a long time. Just start over, most people won't mind if you try again.

Q: I have a personal and a business fax. Can transmissions become mixed up?
A: Being bi-faxual can be confusing, but as long as you use a cover with each one, you won't transmit anything you're not supposed to.
