Dumpster diving at Norm Coleman's office
Anyway, it turned into a day of dumpster diving for Senate staffers in the Hart building on Capitol Hill as other sad offices scrounged for free office supplies. Three-ring binders? Printer cartridges? For free? We must be in heaven.
You know you're in a recession when there is mass excitement for leftover office junk.
"We just received a bipartisan gift of 3 3-hole punches from staffers cleaning out Sen. Coleman's office," one staffer wrote to us. "They are throwing away perfectly good office supplies - looks like they may be on a time deadline of clearing stuff out."
"Quite the fire sale," another staffer declared.
One person was seen Wednesday afternoon picking through the glorious office supplies and was overheard saying, "Yes. I am dumpster diving."
