This isn't really a new phenomenon, but....
How bad do you need a pen that you have to steal it from the bank or post office?
Even when they are attached to the counter by a chain???
Yeah, stealing is wrong (blah, blah, blah) and sure, you probably shouldn't do it (blah, blah, blah) but can't you steal the pen from a place where it's NOT tied down? Like, oh I don't know, work? Or the doctor's office?
Doesn't everyone need a pen that says Levitra on it??
