"Has anybody seen my red swingline?"
I bought a red Swingline stapler early last decade after seeing the Office Space movie. Swingline did not make a red stapler. The one used in the movie was a prop. But after the movie came out, demand for the red version grew, so Swingline introduced their red stapler.
I kind of related to Milton, stapler-wise. Back in the mid-1990s, I had a nice, heavy duty, gray Swingline stapler on my desk. I could hammer that thing hard to get it to staple a thick stack of papers. When I switched departments, the trusty stapler stayed behind.
On my new desk, I had a cheapo, plastic-type of stapler that was woefully inadequate. So on an evening maneuver, I confiscated the gray Swingline from my old department, and it stayed with me until the red one entered the scene.
