# Is this selfmade wordplay solvable and strong enough?

Here is a question I have created myself and I want to use it in a self-created game. But I want to check if others can solve it. It is designed to be a little bit challenging.

I am standing around
All night All day
Have multiple guys in me
forever they will stay
no possibility to say
"Please go away"
Some of them sometimes leave for a while
But they are back by no later than closing time
The guys can be used for drawing
Do you know my name?

EDIT:

Maybe the closing time-part is confusing. The closing time for a office is meant.

Edit2 : Maybe this could help:

• I'm confused now, it can't be the office workers cause there are out and not back by closing time. – rhsquared Aug 16 '16 at 15:25
• no, no humans ;) and you nearly made it with the "box". But it isn't a box ;) – Snickbrack Aug 16 '16 at 15:27

Based on @RadoslavHristov's answer.

You're a

Pen/Pencil holder

Im standing around All night All day

You are, on your desk for example

Have multiple guys in me

Refers to the pens/pencils

forever they will stay no possibility to say "Please go away"

Obviously, they don't speak

Some of them sometimes leave for a while

They are used to write

But they are back by no later than closing time

We always put them back in their place

The guys can be used for drawing

Obvious when you're a pen!

• thats it! Gratz ;) – Snickbrack Aug 16 '16 at 15:33

I know it might sound silly but it looks to me like

Box of colour pencils (or pens or markers)

Im standing around

The box is right there on my desk

All night All day

Yep, all the time

Have multiple guys in me

It has different coloured pens in it

forever they will stay

Yes, they are doomed to stay in there

no possibility to say "Please go away"

The box has really no say in this

Some of them sometimes leave for a while

You take out a pen/marker/pencil for a while

But they are back by no later than closing time

And then put it back before closing the box

The guys can be used for drawing

And you can draw it them.

do you know my name?

• oh my god :D you nearly made it. Please re-think the standing part. Is a box really in a standing state by nature? Or could there be a another thing? – Snickbrack Aug 16 '16 at 15:20
• Could be one of these "cups" to put pencils/pens in? – Gintas K Aug 16 '16 at 15:30
