Calculator of the Month Club

It's happened again.

On the first day of every month since June, I have received a large calculator in my interplant mailbox at work. They are all the same, except for color, and all but one of them work. The sender's name on the interplant envelope varies ("Marketing", "Repairs", "Roman Polanski") and the previous line on the envelope is always in our Plano office. But I know the sender is really right here in Beaverton, because s/he actually picked up a previous envelope from MY DESK and re-used it once.

As pranks go, this is harmless. Even beneficial, because they're actually quite nice calculators. But I don't know who is doing it or why. (I do have some suspicions.)

How odd.
