Unless I take great pains to keep up with preventive measures, there’s a very good chance that some of the office equipment could just up and function properly, and we can’t have that!

In packing just as many shreddies between its little metal teeth as I possibly can. I know the job’s almost finished when what’s wadded up in there has the consistency of wood.
“Rrrrr, rrrr, rrrr, clunk,” is music to my ears.
