Star Neighbour accidentally sends their file to my printer
It happened twice. Someone sent a few files to our printer and my husband asked if the pages were mine. Obviously they were not. So I got frightened by a noise and came out to find the printer on a large job. I pulled the power cord out. I am not going to go banging on doors to find out whose school assignment was printed on my printer mir grade it. I thought about leaving it in the lobby but that is violating someone’s privacy and somewhat bullying.

We live in a highrise. I think I had accidentally chosen someone else’s printer since a few times I sent a knitting pattern or recipe to the printer and the job went but nothing happened to my printer. So then I wait for my husband to come home and tell him the printer wifi is not working.

Some nasty person in our building was complaining of other people wasting his ink and paper. I believe he locked other people out of their printers. That I do believe is wrong.

My tablet will not even find any printers on the wifi now. I have to use my laptop and a cable to print anything now. I think there is another way for my husband to correct the problem and lock only our devices to our printer but he just has not had the time to do that.

The same neighbour sent some really confidential document to our printer and now we know what apartment they live in. We never did anything about it other than just keep the printer off or try to lock it to our computer.

This neighbor might want to know that their print jobs are going somewhere else.
