Ok! I HATE PAPERS! I ADMIT IT! IM A PAPER HATER!
Now what do I do? I hate these things. This scrap of paper, that scrap of paper....names, ph numbers, appts, scribbled everywhere. Contracts, bids, agreements, visa charges, checks, all over the place. Tasks, to dos, lists, priorities, urgent, must do, immediate, next week, next month, in another life!!!!! Call her, call him, call them, call another day!!!! Not home! Don't ring! Left a message! Wrong number! Assignments, Due dates, Taxes, records, receipts, coupons, bills!!!!! Why Why Why????? Let me go hunt a *******' elephant! To hell with the papers! I HATE PAPERS!!!!
Does anyone feel the same way? I was not born to push papers, but they get in my way all day.
It makes no sense...The sock monster takes my socks yet the paper fairy seems to keep bringing me more and more paper.
I don't remember where I heard it but somebody told me that she throws out all of her papers but scan anything inmportant to her PC 1st.

Our achilles heal, piles of papers. I only use my franklin planner now, nothing gets written anywhere else. I use online banking and setup online payments for pretty much everything, I opt out of getting paper statements whenever I can. And you know what? I still have mounds of papers where I continue to misplace key things. Something evil gets its kicks out of watching me perform a frantic search for something at the last minute.

You love paper? You're just the person I need to meet! Please explain to me what you love about paper? Everything! Every detail! What is it about paper you can actually love? Share this with me, so maybe my hateful relationship with paper can be transformed. If I could love these little pieces of ---well---scraps --- that have made it apparent they are not leaving my life anytime soon -- if I could learn to love them too, like you do, my daily life would be easier.
Advixe me ohhh great paper lover!
Ok...I hate paper too yet...I decided to not only to make my own invitation for my sister's bridal show...I have to make them on special paper...yes all 85 of them....and print out my own envelopes...
If that wasn't enough I also decided to keep track of the RSVP's...boy was I happy today when some of the paper came back to me in the mail because i reversed the numbers on two of the invitations(they were sent to the same address). Actaulli I'm not sure If I was the one who revered it since there were 5 different people making the guest list...
I MUST remember that PAPER is my enemy next time I get involved with a project with lots of PAPER!!!!!
