Where do all the missing pens go?

Asked by spendy (1446points) May 29th, 2008

There must be an entire colony of them somewhere. I understand that people walk off with them from checkout counters and co-workers nab them from your desk…but what about in your own house? I’ve never seen one sprout legs, but maybe I’m wrong. They just always disappear.

Same place as all the missing socks.

They’re all at my place.

I have no shortage of pens. I have pens from places where I’ve never been before. I have pens from places I’ve never heard of. I have pens from countries where I’ve never entered. I have pens from companies that I never knew existed.

I think they made their way to me as well. I have never bought a pen in my life, yet there are tons of them in my room, truck, and in my backpack. They just somehow gravitate my way. And its not like i go around stealing pens either, i really have no clue where half of them came from.

Remember when people had really nice pens, like watches? I don’t.

I have all your pens that gave up the ghost. I must have a gross of them sitting in coffee mugs in my den and not one of the bastards work.

Astrochuck- the bastard is you must confirm that a pen no longer works before disposing of it. Who has the time?

Surely you can’t ask me to throw out any of my babies, right?
