Read the pattern nee / Read the pattern needle

Read the pattern nee
Read the pattern nee

It is very often the case that an office staff has to deal with tons of paper works.
The amount of the papers is so massive that the staff is more confused than ever when he/she has to decide which papers are read and which are not. And in order to do so, he/she has to reread them all to figure it out.
BUT this will not happen to a staff who has Read the pattern needle in his/her hand.
Once he/she finishes reading a paper, he/she needs only to bend the Read the pattern needle from red to green.
By make use of such a convenient device, all papers are much easier to sort out and the precious time should never be wasted again.
