I've Got A Present For Ya

I don't know what it's like at your place of employment, but where I'm at, when someone gives you  work it's prefaced with, 'I've got a present for ya' or 'Here's a present'. Doesn't that seem just a little sadistic? I wonder if it's a southern thing like 'Bless His Heart', which if added to all the nasty things  said about someone absolves the speaker from speaking ill of  that person. As you can see, one of my co-worker's with a sense of humor took a whole new approach to the present thing. I found the 'work' folder slipped under the door to my office. There was a note mentioning the box of chocolates wouldn't fit. While, I'm afraid that the offer of a box of chocolates was bogus, the folder added a touch of whimsy and lightened the day.

  1. That does seem to have a sweeter touch on the work load. I wish my boss would wrap my duties in a box of chocolates... or maybe tag two tickets to Fiji to them. Ha!

  3. If someone told me the box of chocolates didn't fit, I'd expect a box of chocolates next time I saw that person! :)

  4. since I live in a poor country in which it is the greatest happiness if you can find work, getting some is the greatest present ever.
