Years ago I temped in a law office where the office manager gave me instructions about a very particular (TRANSLATION: enormous pain in the ass) attorney who REQUIRED that his documents be stapled in the upper left-hand corner, VERTICALLY, precisely one-quarter inch from both the left edge and the top. Fortunately I never had to do anything for this persnickety schmuck, or I probably would have handed him his documents stapled either all over the place like a capricious two-year-old would do or with one neat staple dead-center of the page, HORIZONTALLY. It would have been worth jeopardizing the assignment.
