We’ve been cleaning out our offices this week, and it’s damn funny to see some of the things people are taking home.
A whole box of business cards? Why? I mean, if you’re going to use the backs for note taking I can maybe see it, but seriously, WTF are you going to do with 400 business cards from a place where you no longer work? I could see keeping one as a souvenir or something but come on.
Handi wipes. You know, those individually packaged wet naps? Yep, coworker had a couple in her desk. I think they’ve been there since 2003. Again, I have no idea why.
I was also just reminded to make sure I take all my pens home. Why? The reason most of them are in my desk is they’re those useless ones vendors give you or some crazy Christmas thing someone passed out at the office. No, I will not be taking those – they’re here because I kept hoping someone would steal them.
I can’t wait to see what else walks out the door in the next three days.
You have pens that you don’t want?! Does not compute.
They’re CHRISTMAS pens. YEARS worth of them.
You say that like it’s a bad thing.
If you’re me, it is. (I think I’m a direct descendant of Scrooge).
They met with the perils of the circular file this afternoon. RIP Christmas pens!
