Mrs. Ink: "Yes. I don't like having to fill out these forms with a pen tied to the clipboard."
Mary: "I'm sorry, but before we started tying them on we were losing 2-3 pens a day. That adds up."
Mrs. Ink: "Ridiculous. You get pens for free from drug companies, anyway."
Mary: "We used to, but that was banned effective January 1, 2009. So now we buy our own office supplies like everyone else."
Mrs. Ink: "Everyone knows doctors are rich. I can't believe your cheap boss just doesn't buy more pens."
