There are not many perks for those of use who work in an office. Back in the days when I was a butcher, I used to get free lunch (meat) and a 20% discount on everything I bought (meat). Nowadays the perks seem to be coffee - when someone remembers to make it - and the one time a year the office building buys all the tenants ice cream - which I missed this year.
That was, until we received an e-mail that made me as giddy as Stewie Griffin with a new cache of Plutonium.
Turns out, employees at my company can use the corporate discount at a major office supply chain for personal purchases.
Cheap pens! And notepads! And hi-lighters! And markers! And, and, and staplers!
Sorry, I almost passed out there from all the excitement. It's just, you guys know me. I love office supplies more than Prince loves heeled shoes. More than Abe Lincoln loved tall hats. More than vampire wannabes love body glitter.
I love them - a lot.
And now I can get them for less.
