Is there not a pair of stable removers in the entire office? You should've asked around.
And so it comes down to us, the FML community, to solve the OP's problems by suggesting sophisticated out-of-the-box solutions like… scissors or a staple remover. I'm sure neither crossed the OP's mind… over a decade ago.
That sounds like part of a hazing ritual, give the new recruit a meaningless task to see if they brake. Stay strong and put em in their place. Remember it's the strong who persevere.
Removing staples is a valid task especially if they're too busy at the moment to get you trained or oriented for a harder project that day. Advising an intern to put the company employees "in their place" isn't the best idea. That's not how you prove you're a team player that's willing to pick up the slack and do the less desirable portions in a project. Everyone pays their dues and pitches in. Besides Grunt work always falls to interns.
