When someone hands you a large stack of paperwork to be copied, and doesn't tell you that there's stapled packets within the larger framework of unstapled paperwork, this is crypto-stapling. This, of course, causes the feeder to jam, make all sorts of loud noises, and make you look like a moron.
Damn it! Chuck gave me all these TPS reports, but there was a crypto-staple in there and it jammed the copier!
