Pet Peeve [Indefinite]: People who send print jobs to a communal printer and then do not monitor them. It's fine to leave your printing for an indefinite time if you have your own, but on a shared printer it's downright rude. Today I sent something to the printer and got up to fetch it immediately, only to find out someone was printing letters and the machine had run out of letterhead. Not a soul appeared for five minutes; I just replaced the letterhead myself. Ten minutes later the letters were still sitting there.

Of course I should be surprised. I have found printouts at that machine that are at least a week old. One day there was a pile of paper at the printer almost two inches high. By the end of the week, the pile had only decreased about half an inch!
