11/10/16 - Click, click, click, click, click

Click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click...ad nauseam.  Have you ever worked with one?  Been married to one?  Been friends with one?  Borned one?  Bee one?  PEN CLICKERS!!  They are here to subtly drive you crazy (for me that's a short putt). 

They will do it in meetings because you are a captive audience.
They will do it in grocery stores.
They will do it just out of spite and malice.
They will do it BECAUSE THEY HAVE A DAMN PEN AND THAT'S WHAT IT IS FOR.

Here's a scenario based on an actual event.  To set the scene...Supervisor's meeting, in attendance four supervisors and Section Chief.  Names will be withheld to protect the innocent and/or dead.

*sound of clicking
click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click...

*me gives stink eye to culprit, he/she doesn't notice

click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click

*me puts my own pen in my lap

click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click

Me, to culprit:  "May I borrow your pen?"

Culprit:  "Sure."

*culprit hands me pen

*me throws pen across the room and puts hands in the air in sheer desperation

*Section Chief looks at me for a moment and realizes that I am crazy

*culprit with another pen

click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click

*me kicks him/her under table and moves on with meeting

Some of the above may be hyperbole as I don't really know if the Section Chief thought I was crazy, but I'm pretty confident of it.  I told him time after time that my Mother had me tested.

So to all you pen clickers in the world, for the love of God, STOP!!
