TLDR: tell me what you have done lately to Grinch it up!
I work in a City Hall with ~50 people. On the top floor there are 3 departments. The planning department was given a big shit-load of gourmet Christmas cookies (as a wink wink nudge nudge from our favorite developer). They immediately labeled it for Planning and Engineering ONLY! What about us poor finance people? They don’t mind sharing OUR food. So?
I put on a pot of coffee, and when it was ready, I Mission Impossibled into the room, got a big cup, filled a few paper towels, and went into my office and closed the door. Sure, they know someone pilfered their cookies, about half of 'em in fact. BUT I have plausible deniability.
Just have to keep cookie crumbs out of my beard and I’m golden.
So, what have you done around the holiday to make it more bearable?
