Here I am sitting at my desk, minding my own business, when across the room Todd gets very excited. He grabs his stapler from his desk, as well as a random stack of paper. After futzing with it for a moment, I hear the stapler do its thing, followed by a gasp of happiness.
T: Did you know a stapler can go the other way, so you can take the papers apart without ripping them?
T: Did you know it was called pinning?
T: How did I not know this?!
As it turns out, 3 out of 9 people surveyed did not know anything about the pinning action of a good, old Swingline.
We’re learning new things here everyday, people.
