You go from the flat side BUT strike plate setting matters!

Real paper handlers know the outie (?) setting, where the teeth go out not in, is what you use when the recipient is likely to unstaple

If you're stapling shit together you know is gonna be undone but use the innie (????) setting, you're putting on gloves to wash your hands, just real dumbass shit

You talking removing it with one of those snake bite things?

Open side to pry the tangs straight, then flat side to pull it out.
A small flat head screwdriver driver works well.

Yeah I've hurt myself with staples 50,000 times, but never once with the monster-tooth mandible weapon we invented to remove them...

look at this stupid poll adding up to 101% :ax:

I saw some internet clickbait "you've been removing staples all wrong!!!" and sure enough there are videos suggesting that you use the tool on the "open" end and then do MORE work on the other side... this doesn't feel right to me at all. the monster-head tool has insanely sharp teeth precisely so you can get 'em under the flat side, right?

lots of wonderful responses here:
• kevin's flesh flex
• james making me think of mosquitoes & bug zapper (small, harmless thing is actually a menace; larger comically-scary thing doesn't actually harm u)
• andrew's deep wisdom about that little spinny bit that... I know what that other setting does, conceptually, but I sure as hell won't be using it.

I thought we were talking about using the flat staple remover that most staplers have on the side. Why you'd use a separate tool if the stapler already has one literally attached to it I don't know. You slip that under the flat side and boom, done.

Or, you know, you can use the other side and two different tools to remove the right and the left one, and then a third to pull the staple out of the paper.

scrape it straight with a finger nail and bend with my fingers by hand if possible, hopefully and repeatedly injuring myself needlessly in the process

Life hack: Spit on the paper around the staple until it's fully soaked. Next, grab hold of the staple with some pliers and yank at that thing as hard as you can while holding the paper with your other hand. Given enough force, you will rip that staple through every single page. No one will ever deny that a staple used to be there -- and when the paper dries, it gets wrinkly and might even smell minty if you do it soon enough after brushing your teeth.

USA staplers tend not to have these, I think?

I do have a baby one with an adorable little tail like this, though:
