If monopolies are supposed to be bad, why isn’t there uproar regarding the monopoly scissors have in the workplace?
Staplers have paperclips to keep them in line and vice versa.
As far as writing utensils go, there are pencils, pens of numerous colors and sharpies.
My office phone appears to be a commanding presence at first glance, but two feet away sits my cell phone.
The tape dispenser has thumbtacks and glue sticks to make sure it behaves.
Even post-it notes have “scrap sheets of paper and tape” to worry about.
And then you have scissors.
Scissors have no rival.
I wouldn’t mind, but they’re just so smug about it.
