Do You Bring Unwanted Easter Treats To Work?
Easter, here at the radio station, is turning into many other holidays where people bring-in unwanted treats for other people to graze on.
It used to be only Halloween when, after a few days, everyone would bring the candy they were sick of in to work for their co-workers to nibble on. Then it was Christmas (I think we're still eating Christmas cookies). Then Thanksgiving. Mothers and Fathers Day. And now, Easter. Some of my co-workers brought what was once a large chocolate egg (pictured above, shattered and partially devoured) and most of a loaf of Easter bread to work today.
When did work become the clearance rack of unwanted treats?
Don't get me wrong -- I'm not complaining. I like snacks. But whether we realize it or not, the "I'll bring it to work tomorrow to see who will eat this" mentality is snowballing beyond holidays. It's fun to watch.
And yes, we will eat practically anything here. That's more fun to watch.
