Digial Printing - Going Gray Illustraitor CS 4

Ok Ok, I know better but I figured since I was just printing at Office Max on their digital printer I would set up my Adobe Illustrator CS4 file as RGB. But when they guy went to print it came out as gray scale? We were both stumped. I said well it is RGB, and he and i agreed it shouldn't really effect it since it was digital and it switches it on the fly. But once the fly was switched to CMYK the color came out in the print.

Another interesting thing that I found with this little experiment. It seemed like when I tried to create a PDF from the printer when the file was in RGB it would export in grayscale? I had never heard of this before.
