I went to Staples tonight to drop off a UPS package.

While there, I looked around to see if there was anthing I needed.

I remember, I needed a stapler.

I found a good bargain, it was a Staples brand stapler.

I bought some staples to go with it. They were Staples brand staples.

When I got home, I tore open the plastic packaging...which, as always, failed to release the product, so I got a scissors and cut it open.

I put the sample staples that came with the Staples stapler, into the stapler. I tried to staple, but none of the staples came out of the stapler. I opened it up. Reloaded. Nothing. Then I read the instructions. Nope, I had it right. Still nothing.

I found the receipt. Tomorrow I am going back to Staples, to return my Staples stapler. If they cannot find me a working stapler, I will return the Staples staples to Staples. Otherwise, I will keep the staples, and come home from Staples with a working Staples stapler and Staples staples.

[This is a true story...and if I weren't lazy, I would post a picture of the stapler just to prove it to you.]
