I bought a home printer. I have instantly regretted my decision.
So, here's the deal. I needed a printer at home for the simple fact that I was trying to make life convenient.
I've never actually owned a newer printer, not since I was 16 years old and was embarking on a writing career that included a typewriter initially. The first printer I purchased was a simple plug in one that actually worked better than the first "new" one I bought recently.
The printer of choice a few months ago was a Canon, not overly expensive (less than $100) and it was a wireless model, simple, clean, neat and seemingly the answer to my prayers and keeping me away from Kinko's every time I want to print a resume, application or have any sort of paperwork that can't be filed or worked on electronically alone.
The setup for the printer seemed easy as the instructions unfolded like a treasure map, but what I got was a simple, step by step process that I had to do several times for it to work, and trying to load it on an Apple laptop was even trickier (for reasons known only to the universe Apple and Canon can't stand one another).
