What Time Is It?

Today, we got an e-mail from our office manager saying that a vendor had sent the office three electric letter openers to thank us for our business and whoever wanted one should go to her office, first come, first served.

"Good grief," I thought. "How overworked must a person be that they are so overwhelmed, so completely exhausted, that they absolutely, positively could not possibly open one more envelope with a regular letter opener?"

As I processed this information, I read the next sentence of the e-mail: "It's also a clock!"

Well, in that case...

Susan - No, I hope I'm never that tired.

Wait! Don't we all need to know what time it is when we're opening mail? ;)

Ok, now that is just odd!!

Jen T. (that's me) said...

It makes me laugh too, because I'm sure the person who wrote the email put some kind of "ALERT!" feeling in the subject line. haha... she always does/did. Tee hee.

It would be cooler if it time stamped the envelope as it opened it!

Ha,ha...whose going to pull over the clock just to open an envelope...too much trouble.

Laurie said...

Peter - I agree.

Sophmom - It's 2 seconds later than when you started opening the letter.

SO - I'm glad it's not just me.

Jen - ;)

Susan - A real "one man band" of letter opening.

Abandoned - I checked it out and you slide the envelope across the opening below the clock.
