Pencils vs Golf Pencils/ Are We Not Office Depot?

April 26, 2010

I recently stocked all the service desk areas in Annex 1 with new office pencils and attached written markers indicating they should be returned to Annex 1 desk areas.

Today, they’re all gone.

If patrons ask to ‘borrow’ a pencil, a high percentage of them do not return. Remember – we have boxes of ‘golf pencils’. They’re relatively cheap and do not require an honor system for their return.

Please provide them to the public, versus our desk pencils.

    yes! and if you’ve been to the horse races, county fair, Ikea, etc., you’ve used one!

    I went through my collection old pens and put many in the desk drawer.
