Staples

Staple

 
Every now and again somebody hands me a clump of papers that are stapled together EXTRA SLOPPILY -- the papers are not aligned properly, there are multiple staples in layers of paper -- it just drives me crazy. How difficult is it to stack papers neatly a time or two before stapling them neatly ONE TIME in ONE PLACE?!?!?!? Apparently this task is difficult for some.

My sister and I were discussing this BIG PROBLEM, and we both admitted that we spend a fair amount of time correcting and properly re-stapling the shoddy work of others. Perhaps we need to get a life. Then again, perhaps the sloppy jackass staplers in the world need to modify their behavior and make the world a better place.

I don't deal much with staples but I LOVE the new header art!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! For me the papers need to be lined up EXACTLY before stapling. But one time at my old job we had this temp who had nothing to do so she went through ALL our old file cabinets and re-stapled EVERY SINGLE batch of papers!! It was weird and hilarious!

I don't know why someone would staple before lining up the pages. I think some people are just oblivious! To me it is just common sense

Love your new header!!! Actually those staple photos are really cool! But I get what you are saying...it's not that hard to align paper properly and staple it. Is it???

I totally agree, it's like these people skipped kindergarten.

Oh my lord, lady. You crack me up. I'm the same way with interior design. Anytime I walk in a place, I always make a mental list of what I would change if I owned the place. Sigh. I have a major problem.

Much Love,
