Due to my impending move, yesterday I went to the postal office to fill out a change-of-address form. After realizing that I didn't have a pen with me, I asked the postal employee behind the counter for a pen. He looked like a typical weary, disgruntled civil servant. Anyways, he looked at his bulging shirt pocket, which actually had a pocket protector containing at least 15 pens, sighed and took one out reluctantly. "Make sure you bring it back to me," He admonished, "I just lost a pen to someone else." He really reminded me of that working stiff in "Office Space" who was obsessed with his stapler.
