Stapler 35 is NOT dead.
This unnumbered stapler (now Stapler 38) was left at my office door yesterday. Contrary to the “Dead” note, it is alive and well.
These two staplers were left outside my office door. Official autopsies forthcoming.
Stapler 11 is still alive. One of our librarians declared it dead a few weeks ago, but I dug it out of a tissue-filled trash can and gave it one more chance. It is currently 264 days old.
Stapler 31 died on the operating table. It was 13 days old.
Three staplers are currently missing, so someone put out Stapler 35.
Stapler 32 is dead. It was six days old.
