Ha-Have You Seen My Stapler?

Jokingly, I told my boss that I would love a red stapler, in honor of the greatest movie ever made about work.

He said, "Well Ashley, I will order that for you! Whatever you want!"

I thought, "Wow, I get my own Red Swingline stapler, just like Milton???"

So a few days ago, bossman brought out the red stapler he had ordered me:


Now don't get me wrong. It was incredibly sweet for the boss to think of ordering me a new stapler. But where the heck did this stapler come from? This is the weirdest damn stapler I have ever seen.

But hey, I always get fun comments on it, like, "What is that?"


My job cracks me up.


  1. i love that stapler. i kind of want a gold one. but not just painted gold, glitter gold. just to spice up my gray and white cubicle.

  2. Hhahahaha I'm laughing so hard, he's cool!

  3. I love that stapler, too! You should label it "Milton."

    Just wanted to let you know your blog continues to rock. Thanks for lifting my days, even if I haven't commented in a while.

    xoxo, Jane.

  4. JANE, YOU NEED TO BLOG AGAIN!!!!!!!! :)

  5. You are easily entertained, my friend! ; ) But it sounds like a pretty good working atmosphere. And it is a damn weird stapler!

    P.S. I'm so happy that I'm happy and busy enough not to be blogging. Although now that I have to do some thesis work, I'm sure I'll find time to blog again.... ; D

  6. Um yes, I am easily entertained. I'm not living in Germany like you with lots of things to entertain me...so I turn to staplers :P

  7. That *is* the greatest movie made about work. So, so great. As is my new blogroll name. Goodbye raindog, hello Rob ____ Gordon. Haha! That's great. I LOVE it. :-)

  8. Knew you would...I still love GordonForce as well :)

  9. Hi Ashley. What's happening? Uh, we have sort of a problem here. Yeah. You apparently didn't put one of the new cover sheets on your TPS reports.

  10. Lol, that reminds me of a high-heeled shoe.

  11. BAHAHAHA!!! That's TOO funny!!
