11. They vary from pen to pen. But, I hate the ecologic harm aspect of "throw-away" pens

Not to mention, how much nicer the refillable quality pens write.

And while most large workplaces I've had affiliation with in the past twenty years have likewise offered cheap bics, the ones that were more progressive with recycling policies and energy reductions have long ago encouraged refillable pen use, though usually only with reimbursement for the refills rather than trying to stock (and I surely know why).

If nothing else, I'd be surprised if you haven't encountered at least a few using the ubiquitous RETRO51 pens. That is they one I tend to see most often.

While the computer has taken over a large part of my daily "writing", I still do some medical charting. updates and some personal notes, at least partially hand-written. Having a decent-writing pen that doesn't skip and leave glops of gelatinous ink everywhere (nor leak in my purse or pocket) makes that much more enjoyable (and my writing far more legible).
