Office sort

This is mostly for the CS types:

Say you're in an office, and someone brings in a stack of 500 papers that needs to be sorted. How do you think they'll naturally approach the problem, and how as someone brimming with CS knowledge would you advise them to sort it?

I'd generally also say 'insertion sort'. Not only is it reasonable, time-complexity-wise, it's also about as complicated a sorting algorithm as I'd care to explain to a non-CS person in a real-life application. ^_^
