My fellow Plurkers and I discussed office supplies recently. A discussion that began when I mentioned that I wanted the new Sharpie Pen, then started up again when I mentioned I got myself a new Sharpie Pen and that I am very meh about it.
It’s a pen. From Sharpie. That writes like any other pen. Whee. I think I was expecting it to at least compliment me on occasion or something. But nada. Just a pen. A regular old pen.
Then RockinPRgirl mentioned her stapler, the Paper Pro, the same stapler that sits on my desk at work. I’m not being hyperbolic when I tell you that the Paper Pro One Touch Stapler will one day save the world.
This thing. You get up to 25 sheets of paper. Stick them in. Give it a teensy bitty touch like you’re going to tickle a flea and BAM! Staples the crap out of your papers. Shows those papers who’s boss and it ain’t Luke Ravenstahl.
I find it comes in handy when this happens:
Boss: [enters PittGirl’s office] PittGirl? Do you have a copy of the Document That I Keep Losing?
PG: The document that I have given to you about 30 times over the last three months? The document that I have emailed to you, PDF’d for you, printed out for you, walked over to you, handed to you, placed on your chair, put in your box, put in your briefcase, and taped to your monitor over and over and over again? That document?
Boss: Yeah, that Document That I Keep Losing.
PG: Sure. Here you go. [BAM!]
Boss: Thanks. [Walks out of the office with the Document That I Keep Losing stapled to his forehead.]
