    That’s all well and good if you work for some hoity-toity company that can afford to hand out office supplies willy-nilly. I am hoarding my rubber bands and paper clips in case I need them to hunt for food.

    This is great.

    It should go under the category of “Rule 62”, “Don’t take yourself so darned seriously”.

  3. Thank you for the post :) there’re not so many smiles in our daily work. I was glad to see the smiles of my workmates who read this post.
