life is a bind

odd job pete showed me how to bind a document today. i chose to bind a copy of the RIPA. Pete taught me well and said “you can do this bit, it’s easy” or words to that effect.
i inserted my document in to the squasher and ended up with this mess:
after a happy 10 minutes unpicking the metal bits, pete himself inserted the document and got a perfect result. i didn’t take a photo of pete’s one as it was too good.
i’m doomed to a life of hamfistedness
