What I do for Cafeteria Workers
« on: March 05, 2007, 09:40:35 PM »
Easter/Spring baskets, made from tin cans, wrapped and handled with craft foam, surrounded by neon-glitter chenille stems, stuffed with miniature chocolate bars nested in shredded paper and mylar.

This is how I get discounts, extra helpings, and invitations to family events.

I have no need to suck up to my friends, and the folks I made these for are friends. If you'd like to know about my early life experience versus my current friendship with cafeteria workers, and why I am blessed to call these people my friends instead of enemies, please PM me.  And FYI, time is all I have these days and chocolate is cheap, if you know how to shop.

alex....

you're right.  We should all feel blessed to call Creighton our Prince Charming.  I love the baskets.

Creighton, I thought you spent the weekend planting beans?  You've got the touch, that's for sure.

Awww Creighton, that is so sweet.  I wish I lived in Austin (again) and got to eat some of your goodies!   ;D  It doesn't take that much time to show that you care about someone and it absolutely makes their day.

You are such a sweetheart.

I've made a few more, and here's the group.  If you look close, I've personalised them by writing the names of the recipients on the handles.  Some of them go to my friends in the cafeteria, and a few are for people who have worked well with me in my job duties; particularly the ladies who worked with me today to sanction two doctors who have delinquent records and are keeping us out of compliance with both the Department of Health and our own Medical Staff bylaws. That's no fun for anyone involved, so I think they deserve candy in a pretty presentation.

Those I called names, I called "Friends."

It all depends on how well you know them, and how gracious you social skills are.  Only you know for sure what to do.

Basquo,

From the looks of your picture, I'd say you can send me your basket anytime (with you attached of course).

KO, re your "low paid saps" remark, you've got a sarcastic edge going there.

As far as I can see this is intended as a friendly off topic thread. Let's keep it that way. Just sayin'....

Excuse me Ms. Koi, but I think Basquo only has ONE basket of chocolate kisses and those are for ME.... If you want to taste chocolate kisses I advice you look elsewhere because that basket is MINE, understood?
