Sometimes they are not included.

That bites when you are 50 miles from the store.

The top Cables in the picture is called a "Parallel Port" Cable or also Called an IEEE-1284 and the bottom Cable is called a "USB" cable.
Here is a closer view of the "parallel Port" Cables. The one on the left goes to your Printer and the One on the Right goes to your Parallel Port on the Back of your Computer.
The cables on the right are called "USB" Cables. The one of the left attaches to the back of your Computer.
