I am learning two important things at the desk today. 1) Life is boring when we don't blog. 2) People suck. My sunny disposition is fading fast. Even as I am about to blog about rude and annoying lab users, there is a girl on her cell phone. I stared her down and she left. Damn kids.
Anyhow, Katie suggested that I blog about the situation with printing here at the SWS lab. I would venture to guess that I am not the only attendant who finds herself plagued by lab users who print and then don't have money on their cards (or don't have their cards with them, or don't have a card, or don't have a brain...). Given the aversion to more signage expressed in this weekend's emails, I wonder what we can do to ensure that lab users are aware of our printing policies. I also want to make sure that other attendants aren't just letting these would-be free-loaders off the hook and allowing them to take their materials without paying. I don't want to get a reputation as the bad cop in town so back me up on this one people.
