“Are you serious?”
That is the reaction I got from Cathi Swan of the Business Office of Morningside college when I came searching for a red paper clip.
I had been tasked with finding not only a red paper clip but it also had to be “creatively bent” according to my instructions from Ross Fuglsang.
Swan laughed through the entire affair after I had made my initial request because this isn’t something many people ask for at the business office. After acquiring the paper clip for me I asked if she could bend it into something creative. The result is a red spiral.
I thanked her when I left and the smile on her face due to this unusual request was priceless.
