Post-It Note Therapy: Paper Cut Suicide

The doctor is in. Post-It Note Therapy, session 3.

(if you've missed the first couple, you can see them here....and here)

Have you ever noticed how working in a paperless society has actually created MORE use of paper? Email means we can send even more information to each other...and in an office, that information usually gets printed out on the other end. I'm not sure how many trees a year I kill....but I'm confident my carbon footprint is Paul Bunyan sized by now. :-)

One of those sheets of paper bit back today. The smallest of cuts hurt the worst.

And, with the stress-induced mood I've been in all week, my mind immediately went to this burning question......Could I actually paper cut myself to death? If anything, the attempt would land me in the loony bin.

Anything to get an afternoon off. :-) :-)

I know, I know...two post it posts in one week?? It's been a bad week. :-)

For those of you who may have noticed my comments to your posts have been're right. I haven't had a chance to log on and read one blog entry all week. I've got some catching up to do!! :-)

I'm sure it'd be possible to papercut oneself to death, but it'd have to be with cardstock. And you'd have to go for one of the huge veins.

Card stock, for sure!

I once got a paper cut from a cardboard box. Not a pleasant experience. :-)

Super Glue. Stings at first and then nothing. It doesn't catch on everything. Suicide though, take a deep breath and step away from the paper tray...

Does it hurt to type with that finger? If so, I see a workman's comp claim in your near future! :)

Nej said...

@ Brook - had some Crazy Glue in my desk drawer, and it worked pretty slick. That stuff fixes everything. Well.....that and duct tape. :-)

@ Jan - typing wasn't too bad, but bending that finger was murder. :-)

Brook said...

Speaking of duct tape-I saw duct tape wallets for sale at Cracker Barrel-$20! Can you believe it? You can make one yourself and all your friends for the price of one roll! Crazy.
My WV is "saing"-just saying *giggle*

Nej said...

@ Brook - duct tape wallets...that's a riot!!!!! You're making one now, aren't you? :-) :-) :-)

*laugh cough snort giggle*
Months ago I became intrigued with the idea and made the "fabric" but never actually made the wallet. Typical me.
