Having inherited my office from a previous employee there’s a good amount of junk floating around. In order to make my work space more homey, I’ve been grabbing various chunks of metal to use for different tasks. For example, an extremely stiff square coil spring acts as my pencil holder.
Yesterday my boss walked into my office, took one look at my water bottle coaster and said:
“I’m glad that our cutter blades are being put to good use.”
Then walked out.
