you know you've been working in an office too long when…

…the highlight of your week, nay month, is your acquisition of the Swingline Optima PowerEase Stapler.

It truely is a thing of beauty.  I bought it myself, after going through half a dozen office staplers in as many week.  This staples ~35 sheets with a fraction of the effort, and no mangled paper.  My wrists are would make sujood shukr if they could.

  1. Yasemin – lol, one of my friends at work and I trade lines from that movie weekly. It was $24 with tax at the local office depot, but I think it’s cheaper online.

    Sabiha – I actually looked for it in red (or purple) but alas, it was only in black and silver. I’m going to dig up some stickers to customize it, since all the support staff on my floor have purchased them.

  2. Nah, we all bought them out of our own pockets. The firm is cutting back on a lot of things, and I’m sure wouldn’t look too kindly on all of us asking for spiffy new staplers. But for saving my wrists, it was $24 well spent.

  3. “And I said, I don’t care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I’m, I’m quitting, I’m going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they’ve moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn’t bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it’s not okay because if they take my stapler then I’ll set the building on fire… ”

    customize that thing before they take it!
