Every day, we read about the negatives of social media. But there is also a bright side. Apps like Instagram and Tik Tok are full of videos that talk about the new hacks that one should try. One such video that has been trending on social media is about the hidden features of a stapler.
The Trending Video
Recently, a video was shared by a Tiktok user, Krista Marie, in which she shows how one can have different sizes of staples with just one button. We all know how unpredictable staplers can be on some days. Either nothing comes out when you press down, or your fingers somehow wind up being stapled together. But did you realize that while fumbling with the mechanical device, you might have missed one aspect of a stapler? When frantically trying to pin several pieces of paper together, you quickly realize that some of them have considerably more to them than you initially thought. You can twist the metal rectangle on the bottom front of the gadget to make the staple come out in a broader flared hold, in addition to using a stapler to firmly pin sheets of paper together in a tight hold.
Like every other time, the comment section of this new hack video was filled with mixed reactions. There were people who were genuinely surprised by the hack, whereas others found it old and something they were already aware of. One of the users said they were the only ones who tried the hack as soon as they were done watching the video, whereas the other said they figured it out while they were bored at their workplace. Other than these two groups, there was one more group that talked about their traumatic experiences with staplers. One person mentioned how they have not used a stapler ever since they stapled their middle finger, while another person added their story of stapling their thumb together.
