Sneak Thief

Awhile back I got tired of my cheap, uncooperative stapler. I took myself off to Office Max and bought a real stapler - one that had some weight on it and would actually bend the blasted staples all the way instead of jamming half-way through when stapling a big stack of two sheets of paper.

My new stapler is missing. How does one misplace a regulation office stapler that weighs about half a pound? Last I saw it, it was sitting there on my desk awaiting instructions. It has been about two weeks since I've laid eyes on it.

I do most of my work in my office, but just to be on the safe side because I'm a little old lady who is getting forgetful, I have trekked upstairs and downstairs and fore and aft and I cannot find my stapler anywhere.

I'm pretty sure no one broke in and took my stapler. That leaves me, two cats and two dogs as the suspects. I include myself because of the heretofore mentioned forgetfulness.

But I find myself eyeing the cats speculatively. You wouldn't think they could carry off a half-pound stapler, but then you never know.

This may be a conspiracy to make me think I'm losing my mind.

I take it you've never seen "Office Space." You should.
