OT: Don’t You Hate it When…

By JLP | February 28, 2007

you hide something so other people won’t find it and take it but then you CAN’T FIND it when you need it? I like this certain kind of pen. If I keep them in my desk drawers they get “borrowed” but never return. So, I bought several extras and I’m pretty sure I hid them so that no one would find them. Well, now I can’t find them! ARGHHHH!…

What’s funny is that once I have given up and go out and buy more pens, I come across 2 or 3 that I lost. Go figure.

    I’ve tried those pens and they’re a little small for my hand.

    You need one of those GIANT pens. The ones that are 1 foot long and impossible to lose…well, anything is possible.

    I don’t believe this. The stock market is crashing and your blog is discussing the size of a pen.

    wise owl,

    Funny you should say that. I was working on a “market post” when your comment came across.

    What is worse is when you find a pen you love, then when you use it up/break it/lose it, you go to the store and they don’t make them anymore? Or they don’t sell them in your part of the country? Mr Dimes loved himself a good Zebra liquid gel ink with a rubberized grip and they quit selling them where we lived. Many tears were shed before he found a suitable replacement, and now I fear that it will cease being available.
