Welcome to "Can I Borrow a Pen?"

The only web page that exposes the everyday consumer!

Welcome to "Can I borrow a pen?"  To put it simply, this webpage is designed to show the average consumer what their typical actions at the checkout line consist of.  This page is not an attack on all customers, just a "wake up call," if you will, for certain ones.  This page is directed at the general public for entertainment purposes and also at the "problem makers" for a little lesson in social etiquette.
