I don't get why these companies stopped providing USB cables. I would assume because it's cheaper not to include them, but it's still ridiculous. Nowadays it's not a problem for me because I have a ton of USB cables, but only because I've bought so many electronics in the past that CAME WITH THEM!

Printers have never come with cables. Evan back to the days of parallel and serial interfaces you had to choose the type of cable you needed, and purchase it separately. I buy a LOT of printers and have never known one to come with a cable.

There are a couple of points to be made: True printers do not come with USB cables, probably for the reason the cable does not wear out like the printer. The problem is that the caveat on the printer box of no USB is printed so small and in such a spot as you can't see it. I have argued this for years but the people who write up the words to be used on printer boxes are among the dumbest!
I encounter this problem frequently. Might add that, if a sales person was involved they should have warned you. However I bet it is printed on the box someplace.
