Staplers have feelings... and some sense too

Tale of missing stapler

Reddit India's r/India handle on Twitter shared a few tales from its treasure trove platform. People are truly upset about their staplers missing from restaurant owners and Zomato's inventory. What really is worth paying attention is the "stapler's perspective of what happened" when a restaurant owner suspected his employee parcelled away the stapler in one of the food packets.

Check out that rib-tickling post by a Reddit user "IAmNotThatMan titled "I am the stapler who took a life-changing decision yesterday." Be ready to get your funny bone tickled.

Hi everyone. I am your routine stapler. Like every other stapler when I was born all I dreamt was sitting on an office table and stapling some papers now and then.

A confused dude who runs a restaurant bought me and kept me on his delivery table where they use me to staple bills onto the food packs. That was when I realised that I am not being used to do what I am supposed to but instead they are risking my human friends lives by stapling my staples onto foodpacks.

The thought that I am a risk to a human's well-being if I stay there bothered me. So, yesterday I gathered some courage, took a giant leap of faith and jumped into a foodpack.

Now, I am no more at that restaurant table. I am at a human's house who I think likes me because he was taking photos of me.

The confused dude who bought me might be blaming his employee but it was me that took a life changing decision for the safety of the humans."
