So, I know it has been a while since I did a pen post. I also realize that people who come here for comics probably don’t want to read my gushing over pens. My solution, do a pen post with a smattering of comics!
So a few months ago I lost one of my Pilot Precise V5. I always keep one in my pocket, and it must have popped out. I quickly replaced it and forgot about it.
About a month later I found it in the parking lot at work. Run over, left out in the rain, searing in the 100 degree heat. It was like coming across a crime scene:
The poor guy looked bad. Cap busted, clip bent all to hell. He had fallen on tough times:
I tossed him in my pocket next to the newer one and went inside. I pulled out a fresh piece of paper and sure enough, it still worked.
I was so impressed that I drew a little picture and hand wrote a letter to Pilot telling them the tale. I am sure they know how awesome their pens are but I just thought I would let them know that it doesn’t go unnoticed.
I figured they might send me a note back, but I wasn’t expecting anything. A few days go by and I get a package in the mail. Holy Shit. It is from Pilot:
Class act Pilot. Class Act. Thanks a bunch Pilot for not only making one hell of a pen but for taking care of your customers.
If you are reading this, thanks.
