Things I Learn About My Co-Workers

The lady I steal candy from at work is going to see Joe Jackson this Saturday. I know this because I saw it scribbled (in high-alert red marker) on her calendar as I fisted a generous helping of prailine pecans from the jar on her shelf.

    I would starve without complimentary candy dishes!

    I vote for you every time, too:)

    I hear there’s a nice selection on Etsy. Just make sure you check who you’re purchasing from — it might turn your desk green.

    i always steal her candy too! that woman has been friends with my mom for years, and until recently i didn’t know that was her desk…i guess i never looked. she came to my parents’ for easter dinner and i felt so badass knowing that i always steal her candy and i’ve never been caught. but then i thought about it more, and i think she wouldn’t care. i mean, it’s just sitting there, in plain view, it’s probably for everyone.
    and also, i can totally see her at a joe jackson concert.

    YES! That makes me feel less guilty. Collin and Bob would always accuse me of being some horrible candy thief, but she leaves the jar RIGHT THERE! It’s not like we’re rummaging through her desk, right?

    I never knew it was that lady until last week when Kim was like, “Hey you know that lady whose candy you steal? You know who that is!” I never knew her name until then, but she always stops to talk to Eleanore and she’s so nice!

    She has a WYEP sticker up over there too so when i saw that on her calendar, I thought, “Of course she’s going!”

    Off Topic: Will Joe ever find the right chair??
