When you visit doctor offices or any place where you have to fill out paperwork, do you keep the pen the receptionist gave to you? Or do you return it with the paperwork?

I never thought of that, but you are right. If their name is on the pen, it is advertising. So, it is good to ask if you can keep it.
Now a Uniball would tempt me. In fact I have one I kept last week from my spine doctor's office.
I carry pens in my purse, but sometimes one feels so right in my grip that I keep it. My doctor's receptionist last week said, "oh, that's okay. We just keep refilling the holder because we put the pens there for our patients."
My sister does that. Once a pen is in her hand it is like glued there.
Well, that is a good way to do it. Thanks, Penny.
Good idea, Kevin. Thanks.
Good answer, good answer. LOL
Now I feel guilty for keeping pens that aren't mine. I will follow your example of the effort to return pens. Thanks.
That is nice. I think pens are like puppies -- they get attached to whoever is holding them.
Ah ! You were on the side that gave.
Sheila, when I worked in an accounting office I was the one to keep control of supplies inventory. I had to order generic pens, at least two boxes a week. Those pens disappeared fast ! It is good to make the effort to return pens. Thanks.
