Cubicle Creep: The Borrower

The Borrower is a member of the cubicle community who constantly borrows stuff from the desks and cubicles of others, often times never returning the items. They never seem to have their own supplies, and then scoot back in their chairs, lean left or right, and say, "Hey, can I borrow a paperclip?" or "Nancy, can I borrow your stapler for a second? or "Do you have any hand sanitizer I can borrow?" For those unfortunate souls that must sit next to or near a Borrower, learn the power of this word: No. Sometimes borrowing is just a really polite way of stealing.
