Honestly, I'd just give them $20 so they so they can spend it on whatever they want.
Harder to lose a shirt then a pen.
What about a $20 toothpick?
I will lose that pen way sooner that I'll lose a shirt.
The pen is mightier than shirt.
Just bought a four pack of Parker pens on amazon for £19. Not saying they're the best in the world, but I'm not civilised enough to appreciate anything better.
Bro you are totally right and it confuses me
Totally unrelated, but your name can be rearranged to "Serve it to h-job" and I think that is beautiful.
I can buy a bag of bics (not to be confused with a bag of dicks) that will last me years if i don't lose them. Given my history with misplacing pens i don't see it as a good investment.
On the other hand i have t shirts from 10 years ago.
I'd rather get a t-shirt than a pen though
Have you ever used a fountain pen? Writing with one is amazing! It makes writing a pleasurable activity!
Since I'm a writer people have gifted me some absolutely wonderful, fancy pens and inks.
I'd still rather have the t-shirt.
What if it was something else more tailored to your hobbies. Say for example if you like to cook, would you prefer a $20 whisk or a $20 kitchen knife?
Lmao definitely a $20 whisk a $20 knife will be trash no?
I guess I could prefer something like a book, but I would never say no to a funny graphic tee or something like that
Me too, I love a good t-shirt! I get what OP is trying to say but the real point is spend the money on something that the person would actually want.
Depends entirely on the t-shirt, and the pen for that matter
Who buys pens?
Yes I would love if someone bought me a cool Buster Keaton T-shirt. F..k a pen buy magic markers to color in pre-made posters.
I guess we all like t-shirts but it works with everything else!
I find when you believe something is expensive, you treat it that way, meaning you take better care of it and it lasts much longer. I have one expensive all-weather pen I've had for years. Biggest concern is everyone who touches it tries to walk away with it!
