I'll need to find a new trick pretty soon because around here, it seems as though food is the international symbol for thanks. Our office kitchen is piled high every day with baskets and boxes filled with chocolates, brownies, cookies, candies, nuts, sausages, cheeses, crackers, and an occasional fruit. We are starting to see the gifts of "Thanks for a great year" pile up and it's becoming more and more difficult to resist the urge. I can hear those little nuggets calling my name and I'm using every trick in the book to resist the temptation. I've even tried this, "Hey guys, did you see the ________ that's in the kitchen? Sure looks good" hoping that my co-workers will all rush over and scarf up whatever it is so there won't be any left for me to bite into.
Is it bad to trick everyone and make them eat, so I don't?
