They are only worthwhile if you do a lot of stapling. I like to staple corners at a 45 degree angle, and it won't do that. I was getting repetitive stress from stapling. My wrist kept getting inflamed and sore. I got the electric stapler and haven't had the problem since.

I got home about an hour and a half ago. 58 km round trip to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and Revenu Québec including a small detour to drop off some returns to a client. I'm pooped and moving in slow motion.

Revenu Québec self-serve time stamping machines, so you could make your own receipts. The CRA apparently has the machines, but locked them away at closing, at 16h30.

Proof I was there
