A couple of weeks ago, I came home to a package from Paper Mate’s PR folks. Inside were their new InkJoy pens, and a funky lock box. Nate (8) immediately honed in on the lock box as it has a cool function – rather than opening by key, it uses fingerprint technology to open. He and my husband set the box to their thumbs and the box (and the cool new colorful InkJoy pens) have now been stolen and locked away from Mom’s hands forever more.
We’ve had several laughs about it since and I have to say, this new campaign by Paper Mate is definitely clever. They put this out on Facebook – 100% of Office Coworkers who were polled admitted to having stolen a pen from another coworker at one time or another. Oh, the shame of it!
And I’ll come clean. I’ve stolen pens. From doctor’s offices, my old office when I worked and friend’s houses. Although I will also say I always steal by accident. (But shocking, 23% of the co-workers polled admitted that they stole a pen on purpose!!)
Seriously, isn’t this whole thing kind of funny? But it does get you thinking about pens, right? How many have you stolen in your day?
