Yes, there are more annoying things in life than going to use a stapler only to find that it is empty.  Lots of annoying things.

Today, March 10th, 2014, is national "Fill Our Staplers Day".  Originally created by the Dull Men's Club, Fill Our Staplers Day happens twice a year the day after we change our  clocks.  So, change those smoke alarm batteries and fill up that stapler, so that under a moment of duress your co-worker won't go into a tailspin when he or she goes to use it.

So, for the good of all humanity, fill that stapler today.
