8 Things You Can Lift From Your Summer Job’s Office

The-Office

Office jobs are boring and tedious. Imagine about a hundred people arranged into their little cubicles, typing feverishly to finish a report, but are secretly on Facebook. These lackluster jobs, however, can have a real flare if you pay attention to some of the details are your swivel chair.

 

1) Dividers With Tabs

These tabs that come in the divider packages make a perfect crutch (filter) for your joints. I personally prefer something a little less stiff but I have been using these lately with great success. They measure each at approximately 2 inches across and a 1/2 inch wide. You can print custom designs straight onto the paper, so if you roll with clear papers, then you can personalize and beautify any joint.

 

2) Pencils

Packing Pencil

I bet that the last time you grabbed a #2 pencil you were either just about to start a state exam or you needed something to pack your joint. They have a perfect diameter to pack all of your tobacco or herb. Absolutely fantastic tool. And for my stoners who are also a bit artsy, combine this with number 4.

 

3) Food

Most people make the mistake of not labeling the food they put in the office refrigerator. My theory – if it’s not labelled or bolted down, it’s mine. I adopted this idea from a great friend of mine from Brooklyn. So anyways, wait until the end of the day and then raid the fridge. Usually, one will find half a burger, salad, yogurt, soda…It’s not gross because 1) it got there that day (hopefully), and 2) you know that it once belonged to a fellow employee. You can trust the hygiene of your coworkers (most of the time) and take their food accordingly. Also, most offices have containers of water bottles, so grab a bottle on your way out and you now have a convenient way to fill your bong later that night.

 

4) Moleskine notebooks

Moleskine-Notebook

Nearly every office has some sort of storage closet. If you are lucky, it will be stocked with Moleskines, the most hipster and amazing notebook known to artists and poets alike. Snatch one and hope that there’s no one checking inventory.

 

5) School Shopping

Just walk into the supply closet on your last day with your backpack/briefcase and stock up. Don’t be too aggressive, just take a pack of pencils, some post-its, and maybe a binder with folders. Hell, maybe even grab a stapler.

 

6) Access to free printing

Printing Rules

Print your homework, research, or miscellaneous paper needs on the office printer. Odds are good that it’s huge, industrial, and can handle any print job.

 

7) Books

Free Books

Interested in a bit of light reading? Well, offices are full of great books! Most of them will help you learn about leadership, business, social media, and selling. But don’t worry, there are often magazines too.

 

8) Projector

Look in the conference room for this fun find. I would also advise that you ask permission to borrow it (unless you really wanna go out like that). Your coworkers will use this for slideshow presentations and PR, but this is your chance to open a temporary at-home theater. Just take a white bed sheet and nail it to a large wall. Set up your projector with some chair or pillows, and voila! Movie Theater!
