My $1 Office Gifts

I'm kind of a scrooge at work. I never give gifts for birthdays or holidays. I despise cards because they are over-priced and quickly thrown away. But I was in the grocery store yesterday and Fry's was having a $1 sale on giant candy bars. I couldn't resist. I bought one for myself and before I knew it, I bought one for everyone at the office as well as a few extra so that they could choose the kind they wanted. Luckily, there aren't a lot of people at the office right now with some people on vacation already or else this little extravagance could have cost me a lot of money.

I passed them out at work and the folks were very happy to get them. I'm happy that they are happy and I'm also happy that it only took a few dollars and some giant candy bars to make them happy. Maybe we are all just a bunch of chocoholics. :)

Very cool. The only thing better than a candy bar is a giant candy bar. Sometimes a little thing like that can really brighten someone's day.

It would certainly brighten my day!

It's always fun when someone brings in a treat to work. It's good politics too as people do notice and remember such things--and it doesn't need to be expensive. Something small that people can share in is a really nice thing in a worplace.

oh yes, if someone would bring me in a huge bar of galaxy this afternoon, they would be a friend for life.
