The art of appreciation

Just a short note to tell you how disappointed I am in people today….

I gave out these little Valentine’s Day cards to my coworkers this morning. They weren’t JUST Valentine’s Day cards, but Valentine’s Day cards that come with a free Krispy Kreme donut. Fucking Krispy Kreme, people! I gave out about a dozen (left them on desks this morning), and I got about 5 “thank you’s”. Granted, one of those included my first inter-office hug. It was appreciated.

Is it really that hard to say “thank you” to someone? I bet if I did something wrong, they’d sure be quick to point that out. But a simple “thanks!” seems to be harder than my colleagues can handle.

I’m sad.

    Maybe they thought it was a sexy Valentine and didn’t want to give you the wrong idea.

    Jennifer in legal will be giving you a wide berth from now on! 🙂

    Thank you!

    See, I don’t even work at your office and didn’t find that hard at all.

    As for me, I just wooed my secret office tryst with a fun link to a website about The Office, his favorite TV show.

    Hey Pretty- You are wise. Very wise. Know what he likes and give him an offer he can’t resist… like office links.

    It’s true. He did get THREE donuts. But that’s because he’s a stoner and I’m a munchies sympathizer.
