Just dipped a twirl in my tea. It completely crumbled. Not a good bar to dip.
Best bar is Wispa.
*Dipping chocolate in tea* is clearly a euphemism.
we can skype if you want
It goes nice and mocha-ish.
choc chip brioche dipped in fresh coffee - simply the best
Surely that makes the tea taste horrid?
i've got some serios sniffles going on today. i couldn't be bothered to drive to town at lunch to get some sudafed, so instead i medicated myself with cheese and onion McCoys with splashes of chipotle tobasco. it helped a lot.
Use a Twix for crying out loud
and drink the tea using the Tim Tam as a straw
but with a Penguin and coffee
from the new guy at work who started on Tuesday and whose birthday it is today. He brought in some chocolately treats this morning, as is the usual protocol for birthdays, and he left on them on the cabinet presumably for everyone to enjoy. Anyway, as the day progressed, the treats got eaten and now there are only like 3 Milky Ways left out of a whole bag of them and some cookies. Nothing wrong with that, it would seem, treats get eaten.
However, things have taken an unexpected turn for the worse with an email he sent a few minutes ago in which he said:
>>I was going to invite you to enjoy some of the treats which I brought in this morning, but it looks like they’ve almost all gone so I’ll get some more next week just so nobody misses out.<<
What's going on??? Surely the act of leaving them on the side was the invitation?? Was he keeping a tally of who took treats and who didn't? Is it a joke?? One thing is for sure, I can never speak to him again after this.
He was going to alert everyone to their presence, didn't, saw they were gone, decided that maybe some people missed out, resolved to rectify this
he seems thoughtful and caring
This is weird. Why didn't he just send an email this morning when he put them out?
Jesus christ. Just put the treats on the side, you don't make a song and dance about it.
He's created unnecessary tension, I feel.
it's trying way too hard to please - it's not a guilt trip, it's a 'let me serve you better, sir!'
Yes I'll put this down to nervousness. Still, he's made everyone who took some feel bad, which I'm fairly sure is everyone.
wait until he does something incontrovertibly cuntish before ragging on him - you're colleagues, benefit of the doubt
I... I just don't know what's going on right now.
He even saw some of us eating them soon after he'd laid them down and we thanked him.
Oh god, he probably thinks I ate them all.
1) Left the treats on the cabinet
2) IMMEDIATELY emailed everyone saying >Hey, there are some chocolates on the cabinet. Feel free to help yourselves.'
3) Got on with my day
maybe he thought that would be impertinent of him - a whole-office email! the very thought! but then rethought it later when he felt more comfortable with his surroundings
I haven't had chocolate for 5 days.
But I have vodka dpb or whatever it is
