That Was Sweet

Earlier this week there was a box of candy on my desk when I arrived at work. Another co-worker who went away over the Christmas holidays picked up a box for myself and another lady at the office. She told me that when she started she was the only lady there and now within the past 6 or 7 months our numbers have grown. There are 3 of us girls in the office. And yes.........we do tend to stick together. But we are also treated very kindly by the guys in the office. So, she bought us each a box of chocolates. That was so sweet and so totally unexpected-especially in January! But I'll enjoy them just the same.

I have seen the boxes of the Ferrero Collection in the stores.I still have two boxes of dark Swiss chocolate that I bought before the holidays. I will not buy more, I want to stop my bad habit of chocolate in the evening.

I still have chocolates from Xmas too. And I also have a very bad habit of loving chocolate too much.

@marlina It seems that a piece of dark chocolate is even good, but I do not know if it's a good habit to have it every evening.

I was not going to keep them, but my co-worker, who also received a box, reminded me that she wanted me to have them and not to give them away. So, I'm slowly enjoying them.

Hi Guys, Next time don't throw away your Ferrero rocher boxes and make super easy organizer box from it which will not only organize your stuff but will also...

I do work with some really wonderful people. Yesterday 1 of the guys brought some food back from the Mosque that I really like, so I brought it home for my husband and I to enjoy for supper tonight. And he treated me to a slice of meat pizza at my desk yesterday-spoiled for sure at this workplace!

@Juliaacv Yes me too. Even though it's full time and I'd rather work part time. They treat me like family so I hesitate to look for something else.

Oh we do. There are 2 of us who work full time, and the third one only works a few hours here and there. She is always suggesting that we do lunch together, but we cannot both be gone for lunch at the same time, so this was her compromise.

We stick together, but we really do get treated well by the men in the office, but there's just times when we will gather and giggle-men don't do that, and they don't treat each other to chocolates like that either.

@Juliaacv It's encouraging to hear that the men treat you well. You don't need chocolates if you have respect.

@Juliaacv I love that candy, but I rarely buy it because it's quite expensive. How nice of her to think of you.

It was so sweet of her, but she's just that way. We're very fortunate because her 2 sons as well as her husband work with us. Its a family business, and her brother-in-law owns it.

Wow, very nice gesture on her part. I don't get chocolates often. One of my clients will give me a small box of these and they don't last long.

I've got a feeling that these will be kicking around for a while, so far I've only tried 1 of each.

@Juliaacv because of the nuts I would have to only have one a day. I probably would have ended up giving them to another client.
