My father is obsessed with these ink refills that he hasn't been able to find for the pens he uses at work.
He talks to me about them nearly constantly. He asks who would order them. He asks me to look up suppliers and manufacturers.
Today he found some that were pretty similar to the ones that he needs.
He just made me do a writing test with them.
And every few minutes he comes back out with permutations of pen casing and catridge so I can participate in some sort of ad hoc blind test.

They're his pens.
I don't use them.
I don't want to use them.
**His** pens.
His refills.

Why won't he just leave me alone about this whole pen refill thing?
::sigh::

uhm... no.
See... my dad collects and uses plastic pens with refils.

Dave collects fountain pens with classically made ink sacks and names like "monte blanc" ...

That would be like saying a beer conniseur can be out geeked by a rabid enophile.
They're just different animals.

Shove him at these people:

I don't know if they have a physical store, but they're in your area.

For further possible places to foist him off on, poke around The Pen Bookmarks site.

Good luck.
