However, Target Is Not Selling A "Jump To Conclusions" Mat

Swingline is now making red staplers. If they actually made these when "Office Space" came out (in 1999), they would have sold a million of 'em.

Red stapler

Remember Milton rambling through this monologue on the phone?
"And I said, I don't care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I'm, I'm quitting, I'm going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they've moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn't bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it's not okay because if they take my stapler then I'll set the building on fire ..."

Never get between a madman and his red stapler. I believe that was one of the many lessons I learned from "Office Space."
