I used to work in an office that didn’t supply us with Post-Its. When I requested a pad of those for supplies, all I got was a “that’s what paper clips are for” response. Me, being me, made the most out of it. I sometimes turned them into paper clip hearts for my favorite co-workers, especially in February.
