Meet my new favorite office supply: a strange, spongy rubber thumb cap I found at a client’s office. It’s covered in little raised dots and has a few air holes on one side, perhaps so you don’t overheat. At any rate, the intended use seems to be for flipping through stacks of paper or leafing through a book and preventing the pages from sticking together. I gather the official name is a thimblette.
Frankly, it’s nothing that a licked finger couldn’t also accomplish, but it’s a fun object to idly squish and squeeze and play around with, and it doesn’t take up much space in my drawer.
Have you ever used one?
