Needle-nose pliers . My friend Amy swears this is the only tool you need for almost any job. I agree. For this reason.... I was using a Stanley SharpShooter Heavy-Duty T50 Staple Gun to attach fresh ivy to a table the morning of my niece's wedding. I missed the edge and stapled my finger instead. At the emergency room before the Doctor arrived (he was en route) the nurses and other staff were very curious and taking bets on just how the Doctor would remove the staple. It was embedded quite far into my finger. The Doc shows up, takes one look and sends a nurse to the hardware store for a pair of needle nose pliers. Bing, bang, boom, staple out...on with the wedding. Needle nose pliers. The right tool for any job, even those that require a shot of Lidocaine.
