In the mind (and genitalia) of a binder clip...


Today I had three binder clips left in my binder clip tray. Before I added another box of binder clips to the tray, I removed those three binder clips so they would be on top of the newly added binder clips. The following conversation ensued:

Co-Worker 1: Why did you do that?

Me: Because, I didn’t want those last three binder clips to be sitting in the tray thinking they might not ever be used.

Co-Worker 1: Or, they might be thinking, “Thank, God! We made it through another week without having to leave our comfortable little tray.”

Co-Worker 2: Or, THEY MIGHT JUST BE FUCKING BINDER CLIPS!

Me: You think binder clips "do it?"

Co-Worker 1: If they can think, I suppose they can "do it."

Co-Worker 2: AAAAAAGGGGHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hahaha. I am imagining this scenario with a few different people from the good ol' firm... I'll have to e-mail you and see if my first instincts are correct. :)

I place my binder clips in a chipped antique saucer. In said dainty saucer they jockey for position. Sometimes I toss in some post-its or a business card to mix things up.

I should really take a class or something.

This is what the coat hangers are so famous for.

Serena - They're nas-tay.

Jen - You were close.

La Sirena - It's an orgy!

Ole Blue - It is. :)

Old Horsetail - The coat hangers are a whole other story.

Peg wants to know who these co-workers are. She works in the same place as you, but apparently, the people around her never talk about the sex life of office supplies. Of course, you don't have to name names here, but next time you pass her desk, fill her in. I just don't see Alexis talking about her stapler humping her post-it notes, do you?

Laurie said...

Pokerboss - I'll pop over there tomorrow and fill her in. :)

Whoa, just the name 'binder clips' screams S&M.

You may want to check around your desk for broken rubber...bands.

I'll be here all week. Thank you.

Laurie said...

Grimm - Hahahahah!!

Peter - It's never too late to tell me I'm fabulous. :)
