Pensive


We have a massive problem in our office. There's a pen thief in our midst. I have a favourite pen that I brought with me from my previous job. It's a regular ballpoint, clicky pen, but it's a beautiful pen. And when the pen thief came to visit me at my desk - lo and behold - where should my favourite pen be? Yes that's right folks - Mariska Hargitay would be so proud. It was in the pen thief's hand. I nabbed that pen thief right then and there. I got my favourite pen back. I am a sucker for a nice pen. Bad pens make my writing messy.

Back to the pen thief. No longer is it enough to chew pens, now I've taken to labelling them. I will thwart that pen thief's efforts.
Alternatively I could attach a chain to them and an anchor on my desk.

LOL, good thing you got it back! I take my fave pen home with me in the evenings so it doesn't get pinched by the lovely, dedicated, underpaid, but somewhat pen thievery inclined doctors on night shifts :)

I have resorted to labeling all my stationery. Whenever I get on a film (ie. in an office), it's a running joke that 'Briar has the best stationery - steal from her desk.' Grrr...

I don't know if you have ever seen this... but I am also a pen lover and I am totally the girl version of this guy... the pen head gear at the end is amazing!
