Ransom for a pen?

I have a problem at work. I hate the pens they supply us with. They are those paper-mate ones that come a dozen to a box for about $3.00. They are total crap. They glop ink all over documents or are all scratchy. Anyway, I buy my own pens because of the amount of documenting I do at work. (I go through a pen about every 2 weeks. ) Anyway...purchasing guy came up to me last week and wanted to borrow a pen. I told him I would let him use it while he was at my desk but couldn't take it away. I went on to tell him that I buy them myself and I hide them every night because we have pen thieves in the office. He laughed at me and told me that he could find it. In my smart ass way I told him I doubted it. When I got to work this morning this was wrapped around one of the crap pens. I laughed so hard a co-worker came all the way from the upstairs office to see what I was laughing about. This was the note.

I am not very creative when it comes to comebacks or retaliation. Any suggestions?

Yeah post a BIG note in a place that is seen by many.

There is a pen thief in the building. Reward for return of stolen pen.

Post his picture on the note.

Yep. David's got a good one. Only don't post the picture yet, do a description of some sort...

Pennapper still at large:
May be writing memos without ink blotches. Considered too cheap to buy his own pens, and may have neat penmenship.

Recovered pen will be offered as reward.

I'm no good at come-back, either. Very funny, though! I hope your pen is returned safely to you!!

Send the doofus an invoice for the missing pen. It's especially appropriate given he's in purchasing.

Some people...

BTW, I found your blog via Christine over at Mommy Matters.
