She was wrong there – pigs can’t actually sweat as they don’t have sweat glands – that’s why they like wallowing in mud to cool down.

1980s is the correct answer. Used to work the other way round for me. I used to come back from meetings and find my desk smothered with them

I remember these when I was running a business in the late 60s to late 70’s but not sure which period they came. Used them for leaving notes for my secretary.

Q382. Post-it notes first came on to the market in which decade?
Not sure – don’t think they were around in the 60s, when I worked in an office – it was
paperclips and staples back then. (And, being thrifty, we used the little circles of coloured
paper made by the hole punch, as confetti when we attended weddings). Anyway, I’ll
guess the 1970s
