A very lovely woman who I’ve worked with frequently over the years sent me a fantastic gift basket, full of chocolates and other gourmet goodies, back in Dec. 2008. Unfortunately, I just got it. Today. Ew!
See the thing is, back then we’d just moved into our new offices, and I went out on maternity leave a week later. Things were a bit crazed, and when this package came it was set aside in a closet. It was just unearthed today. Ew!
I could tell something was up when my coworker Andrew, who handles our mailroom, came up to my office with a funny look on his face holding a basket decorated with holly and pinecones. And as you can see, yes, we opened it. Hey, this is an ad agency, we are NOT going to turn down food. Ew!
