Arthur is horribly, terribly, mind-numbingly bored. He works for a company that distributes office supplies to mideastern business parks; Arthur is in charge of budgeting staplers. A few months ago, he accidentally transferred $500 into the wrong account. When nobody noticed except for himself, he thought up a scheme that could change his life forever. Every week Arthur transfers a few more funds from the stapler division to an account which is linked to his own personal finances. He does it more for the thrill than the extra paycheck. In fact, after cashing his first stolen check, he donated it all to a homeless shelter in Columbus. He’s thinking about giving the next sum of money to his sister-in-law who is raising his niece and nephew on her own ever since Leon’s death.
