Pilfer Proof Paper

What does that mean? Paper meaning, (not tape..although it stuck to the box?) it had that paper texture... oh yeah and it WAS brown. This sealed a box recently delivered to me by Fed-ex. Pilfer? OK, we really do have to give this a moment. Everybody on this planet is going to hell! You sin, you're going. OH, wait, you're forgiven....ok go ahead everybody goes to heaven. Pilfer is stealing..? ==...!! small? Only not. You use one pen a month on the job. You take home OH MY GAWD I COULD GO ON & on & more and you do that for 25 years. You grab those napkins out of the dispenser, you need three but you take 12. An extra sweet n low for your purse. Pilfer is just a penny but you do it a 900,000 billion times. I received this package. I was happy, knew just what it was. Pilfer Proof Paper? Sony Corporation. What do you think here? Let's take a run at it.

Part ordered. Part pulled (goes in employee pocket) no, goes to shipping (goes in employee pocket) no, goes to packaging (goes in employee pocket) no goes to dispatch WAIT A MINUTE.

After it is sealed by packaging??? It IS NOT, they are pilfering. Those pilferers. WHO KNOWS??? So it is packaged and sealed, pilfer proof. Packaged and sealed and handed over to dispatch for Fed-ex. Who makes packaging tape that says pilfer proof?? Once boxed and sealed there is no pilfer. That's breaking and entering and theft.. so, but, ...has Fed-ex been delivering empty boxes? Has Fed-ex been stealing from Sony and they think, oh those pilfering employees? Really I want to know. What is the point of printing 'Pilfer Proof Paper' on that packaging tape???


  1. OMG . . . I steal Equal all the time. LOL

  2. Ha ha! Meeko, you steal Equal???? I used to pilfer Splenda and ketchup packets. Verily lovely funny post! Try to say that five times fast "Pilfer Proof Paper" I can't even say it once, ha ha!

  3. I love the word "pilfer."

    One of the things I miss most about working in an office was the white collar theft - pens, markers, paper ... I pilfered it all with abandon.

  4. Hurrah! Reya got 'pilfered' into the mix. Yeah, this was fun and OMGawd yes, I was a pilfering fool myself. I will also note I am positive we have all brought 'stuff' into the office too.

  5. I have awarded you the Lemonade Award. :) Please see my blog for details.

  6. Pilfer definitely is a wonderful word. I have a penchant for office supplies, don't know why, just love them. Pilfer proof paper would prohibit my penchant.

    I have brought home supplies from every office in which I worked. I justified it by the very real truth that they got more blood out of me than the box of paper clips would ever cost. But mostly tape and pens. I love to pilfer pretty pens, ot bic sticks, but pens that write with a fluidity that simply flows across the page.

    Guess I'm a guilty pilferer, too.

  7. small point to your discussion - is it possible that Fed Ex supply the tape to the company for their packaging needs? Self promotion and maintaining their business.
