I don't. If I inadvertently see something that doesn't belong to me, I turn it
face down. People print all sorts of personal as well as business-related things.
Many documents have some degree of implied confidentiality even if the person who
printed them isn't assiduous about picking them up right away. I'm not by nature
an MYOB sort of person (big surprise there, I know), but I try not to be a
downright snoop.

OK.. At *our* printer, we often have several print jobs stacked in the
printer's output hopper. One must thumb through the stack to spot the
cover sheet that identifies ones own outputs. If, in so doing, I notice
something that relates to my own duties, I will either make mental note
of it, to be able to keep my eyes and ears open about it; or, if the
person is a friend, I *may* choose to ask about the matter. It's a
judgement call.
