Tightwad humor

After dinner the other night, my husband was going through some mail at the table. The five of us were still sitting there talking.  He pulled a staple out of some papers. And I said, with as straight a face as I could manage, "put the staple in the pile on my desk, please, so I can straighten it out with the rest of them." Like I said, I tried to maintain a straight face for as long as possible.  The looks on their faces were priceless. They really thought Mom had gone off the deep end. Then they saw me cracking up.  But it was very funny while it lasted. We continued on with a discussion on a contraption you could make and sell to really frugal people, a staple reshaper.
