I just bought the worst pen ever.
« on: October 11, 2006, 10:03:58 AM »
Yesterday morning, I bought a black ball-point pen and used it to write lecture notes.

Half way through the lecture, it stopped working, and no matter how hard I scribbled would not resume its function.

Today, wishing to do work and in absence of any other writing implements, I returned to the pen. After a brief scribble, it seemed to work.

After a short time, however, the ink began to turn blue, before running out completely after a day of use.

This is by far the worst pen I have ever owned. I am going to leave it in the toilet.

Condolences.  As an artist, I know the trauma a bad pen can cause.  But it's good to talk about these things - now the healing process can begin.

Buy a pencil.

Buy a pencil.

...a mechanical one. That way you never need a sharpener. :D
