Although I'm not proud to admit this I know how funny it is so I'm sharing anyway.
I just tried to answer the stapler.
There was this ringing sound (the phone)
I reached for the cordless phone (actually the stapler)
Held it up for a moment looking for the "talk button" before realizing that the phone was actually on the other side of the desk.
Please forgive me if I say something dumb if you're here today.
