Uses for Binder Clips: Wedding Presents

The box of binder clips Real Grouchy gave Manon and me for our wedding was an excellent gift that keeps on giving.

What makes it especially good is that they were free binder clips. Real Grouchy has a relative who works somewhere that receives lots of documents. Apparently even though they tell the people submitting the documents not to clip them together, the submitters ignore the instructions and send in their documents with all manner and sizes of binder clips attaching them together.

Instead of throwing all these unneeded clips in the garbage, the relative saves them for Real Grouchy and he was able to spare some for us.

At his workplace back in May, Real Grouchy had an identity card machine. This meant he was able to make Manon and I official wedding cards.

I carry mine in my pocket.

We have made good use of the binder clips you gave us from your stash.

What? I give you a box of binder clips and you just go and give them away???

Well then I'm definitely not going to get you anything for National Grouch Day!

a) I only gave away some of them.

b) But I'm glad I've given you something you can grouch about today.

c) Which shows that a box of binder clips really is a gift that keeps on giving.
