sharp bits of metal

i HATE superfluous staples. what kind of people think that two or three staples is necessary to attach a single sheet to an already stapled document? would it kill you to use one instead of two or three? would the universe implode if you -- dare i say it? -- removed the existing staple and then just used one to fasten the whole stack?

a week or so ago, my boss and i were joking about having to cut back on office supplies in light of slashed budgets. he said he had a pair of tiny pliers in his office specifically to straighten out bent staples. i now have a burning desire to give each person in the department a single box of staples with a pair of tiny pliers -- and say, "hey, dudes, that's it for the year. use it wisely."
