Students Find Yet Another Loophole… (11 pics + 4 gifs)

2 students wanted to use up their 500 pages of free printing by taking blank paper from the printing room

Reddit user UrPokemon has recently posted a story on the Malicious Compliance subreddit—a subreddit dedicated to “people conforming to the letter, but not the spirit, of a request”—about how he and his roommate took an unconventional way to getting 500 pages of blank paper for free from their university. Completely legal, no stealing involved.

To give you context, the university in question has a policy of letting each student print out 250 pages per semester for free as part of their attendance. This should be used for things like assignments and projects.

Since the Reddit user and his roommate have their own printer, they ended up not actually using their share of free printing. Instead, they figured they can simply go to the printing room and redeem the 500 pages between the two in blank letter paper. Seems logical, right?

 

They couldn’t & were asked to go through the proper channels by printing something… which they did

People from the internet chimed in to share their own workarounds while attending college after hearing the student’s story.

I remember there was a paper due for everyone in school, so there were long lines at the printer stations to get the papers printed in time. My IT class found that we could just FTP to the printer and push the print job directly, and it would cut in inside someone elses job. I remember a guy had gotten the first two pages of his print, then all of a sudden all the pages for all the IT students came, and then the rest of his print. He had to wait for a long time for his last pages and was super mad at us! dance3

It’s no wonder the cost of college has gone through the roof, and they’re forcing their own students to become thieves to acquire the resources they’ve paid for. wassat
