Staple Remover

Staple Remover

If only there were just one staple per carpet tuft. There were many more that were either so old or so deeply embedded that they couldn’t hold on to the carpet any longer. I spent my weekend pulling out 5 generations of carpet staples.

But just think of all that HISTORY in those staples…

Isn’t there some sort of comically large magnet you could use to pull them all out, ending in hillarity and maybe a life lesson?

I think everyone involved mentioned that at least once but nobody ever acted on it.

Yes, we all loved the idea of becoming Magneto for 2 minutes and then calling it a day.

I’ll be keeping tabs on how much your property value increases as you post.
Currently, you are at + $2,000.

If you want to be Magneto for a day, get one of these. They warn you to plan a safe route for transporting, as they will send “loose metallic objects at considerable distances flying at great speed.” Unfortunately, your magnetic adventures will have to sit tight for a couple of days since they will only ship them ground UPS. Apparently, the magnets are so powerful, they can crash the plane.
