When we receive the request we place it is one of those plastic paper protectors
(not the slip in ones but the ones that open from the one side).  We keep it in
there while grossing and when that is complete, we take all the request slips
out of the protector cover and take them out to the clerk. It keeps the reqest
sheets clean for all to handle.
