Carrying extra pens

I think that my professor was right — as attorneys, people come to us all the time whose lives are in a shambles.

  1. By good pens full of ink, it sounds like you may have been carrying fountain pens. The rule on loaning fountain pens (I think I may have learned this from Levenger catalogs many years ago), is to keep the cap, which makes it more likely you’ll get the pen back. But, the problem with loaning fountain pens is that so many people don’t know how to use them, anymore. I see many people trying to write with the nib upside down.

    Any pen snob (or you can use the more positive term, aficianado) should keep disposable pens on hand. That’s about the only thing a Bic is good for–loaning (read: giving) out.
