I think I must be giving out 'feed me' vibes.
As I sat in the staff room today a colleague strolled in with a trolley on which were sandwiches and crisps. 'Help yourself, ' he said. I had a two three handful s of crisps. I was good.
Later in the day another colleague sidled up to me and said, 'would you like this voucher for salad.' Salad, now that's a safe bet given my diet. The voucher was for £40 discount on salad! That's some salad!
On leaving the building you'd think I was safe from further
offers temptation. Ding goes the lift, I step in, a colleague says ' did you get some pasta to take home? '
Well no! I got a voucher for £40 of salad! (Cheated I think to myself. )
My pasta talking colleague told me to go to HR. Complaint tingling on my lips, I left the lift and headed for HR, where I was given some pasta, 3 boxes. The complaint fell silent.
Why was food being hurled at me and can you have some you are no doubt wondering.
Firstly a lunchtime meeting had finished and left over food is traditionally brought out to other staff to scavenge. Secondly my voucher was donated by a colleague who had obtained one from HelloFresh, a box company whereby ingredients and recipes are delivered to your door. The hitch is I'd have to set up a regular subscription. I'm thinking on that one. (I wonder whether they do dates and chocolate balls of gorgeousness.) The pasta was donated by Dolmio on a marketing drive, a big marketing drive. It seemed the whole town was wandering around clutching boxes of pasta when I left the office, finally.
I wonder what tomorrow will bring.
