All of you out there who have been trying to slim down in the new year…you might want to be on the look out for those sweet little Girls Scouts peddling their cookies here, there, and everywhere.
When you get inside the four walls of your work, you might be surprised to find that you are no better protected from the temptation than at the grocery store. In fact, you may be more of a target.
TheMAN and I were chatting about this the other day when I sent him this text showing my colleagues marketing technique in support of her daughter’s GS troop. I sent this picture with a text saying “You really can’t sample and not buy. “That would just be wrong.” I added my name to the long list of fellow employees who apparently visited the administrative assistance’s desk that day. He replied, “They’re everywhere! The parents of the uniformed ‘drug dealers’ did the same thing at this company!! First one or two are always free.” Over the course of the week, he has sent me more than one picture of his acquisitions (read: boxes of cookies). He referred to yesterday’s allotment as “today’s ‘crack’.”
While we may joke about it, the reality is clear: Neither of us have the will power to resist. Perhaps you do.
