A Memo From The Office Fridge

Stop, just stop! It’s too much! You open me, you close me. You love me, you leave me. You steal Joe’s yogurt and I’m stuck with the blame while my door is slammed.

Rubbermaid, now an American institution of consumer products ranging from medical supplies to cleaning supplies and beyond, got it’s start thanks to a little-known western pioneer named Obediah Jones.
