relax, just try and realize how everyone is in the same boat as you and doesn't know what they're doing either. usually schools will have public printers that you can go up to and mess around with until it spits out whatever you want to print. bring a usb stick in case it's easier to do it that way. hell, you might make some friends in y'alls joint plight against the machines. that said, if you're really stuck, take a breather and go ask one of the librarians or the student assistants. they know what to do and will help you with whatever you need, judgement free guaranteed. have fun, enjoy your new school!

this is a perfect reply. i'd also add in that if it still gets to you go during a quiet time so that you can get better used to it before everyone else comes along.

this might be more productive and less destructive than telling my husband.
