According to a recent survey, the top things people steal from their workplace are pens and pencils, followed by envelopes and this in third place.


Printer paper


Pens and pencils have always been in the top spot for things that people steal from work. When I was a kid, my father used to bring home pens that said “Property of the U.S. Government”. I was afraid to use them. Toilet paper used to be a popular thing for people to steal but it has dropped way down the list and has been replaced by printer paper over the past 20 years. Staplers and food round out the top five things stolen from the workplace. Have you ever taken anything from your work. I haven’t – as far as you know!
