Apalling incident in the office, what should I do?

CullenCullen Experienced MentorRegistered Posts: 592
As the office manager, I very kindly bought a tin of Quality Street for everyone to share. I do this every year, buy the sweets, remove all the green triangles for my own consumption, write a letter of complaint to the manufacturers, buy a further tin with the resulting token and then remove the green triangles from this tin, too. It's almost a ritual.

I had to take the afternoon off yesterday, prior to the tin being open. This morning I noticed the tin had been opened and.......................

ALL the green triangles missing!!!!!

Everyone had a smug look on their face and bits of green foil in their waste baskets. I checked.

How could they do this to me????

I don't deserve this.

(Er, do I?)

    The green triangles are vastly overrated - sorry...

    As office manager, tell them that there'll be no Christmas bonuses this year unless the instigator of the theft is named and shamed on the AAT website, preferably on the 'Crap Tutor' thread...

    You most crtainly do deserve it!
    Taking ALL the green triangles before anyone else gets the chance (despite the fact they must be the most hated chocolates ever made), are you not the most hated office manager in the country???!!!

    But what worries me more is your tendancy to look in peoples bins...do you do this often?? LOL :laugh:

    I like the green ones and the purple ones, best thing about being in an office all on your own at this time of the year - noone to nick the choccies handed in by grovelling reps!!

    Do you think in this time of construction indutry doldrums that means more choccies from reps?

    I agree with A-Vic.

    Plus this is theft and theft of any sort should lead to disciplinary hearings for gross misconduct.

    In some countries the theft of green triangles would lead to the amputation of hands!

    I suggest you get each them to buy you a tin of QS. Then call a meeting and firstly eat every single green triangle in front of them right in front of their thieving faces, then secondly force feed each person with the remains of their tins. This should put them off QS for life thus leaving all the QS for you next year.

    Let us now how your meeting goes.

    So come on how did the do go??????????
  • CullenCullen Experienced Mentor Registered Posts: 592
    It was brilliant, they all ordered their drinks at the bar and I ordered mine at the table, having it added to the bill!!!

    Every time I asked the waitress for "another large portion pleeshe" the look of horror on their faces as they thought come divi up time they would have to contribute. Ha!!

    I had carefully worked out my share, including drinks and tip and left first. I looked back in the window and saw them taking their socks off to use their toes in the calculation of my share to make sure I had left enough.

    Because I buy them a tin every year, they just expect it now and see it as pure cheek on my part taking all the green triangles. They fail to make the connection that I bought the bloody sweets.

    By next year, I am sure I will be over this. Isn't it stupid how something silly can wind you up!

    I'm sorry Cullen, was only joking :blushing:
    I didn't know it had actually upset you. I now feel guilty for teasing you about it.

    I think you should replace all the QS next year with exlax chocolate. YOu can careful unwrap all the SQ sweets and put the wrappers around the exlax. Then you can spend the rest of the day watching them all run off to the toilet. :laugh::laugh:
  • CullenCullen Experienced Mentor Registered Posts: 592
    Brilliant, exlax!!

    (No I wasn't upset but you know when little things get to you and you know you should just let them go over your head...?)
