Yes, it happened again. Those awkward moments that happen one time or another. But how do we are take the next step? What should be our response? This happens to us all the time. The most recent experience revolved around a cookie, yes, a cookie! O.K. so you're thinking...cookie no big deal... Well a cookie can become more of a nuisance than a savory, sugary treat.
Something that seems like common sense to a few people may not be so common to others. Such is life, I guess. No, not such is life. This is the time to make the common sense common again, and if that means we have to start with a cookie, then so be it!
Here's a hint: if you decide to bring treats whether it's to the office, a business meeting, a social gathering with friends, please bring enough food (and a bit extra) for everyone! Common sense, right? Well it should be. Don't get me wrong, it's very thoughtful of you to take the time and purchase a treat for a special person in the office, but if you choose to only buy one cookie, then try not to give it while everyone else is watching. It's a bit rude. Now you are allowed to buy what you want for whomever, but out of consideration for others, maybe instead of buying one large cookie for one person, maybe you could purchase enough cookies for everyone. Maybe not so innovative of an idea, but definitely one to keep in mind for future events. Spreading the love for today!
