Office Shenanigans and Wha-hey! Some Baileys!

Works been going good, thanks for asking!
So today everyone went for their annual big expensive lunch, which I didn't go for coz they had paid for it way before. So I was at the office, chatting on the phone, bumming around..it was an excellent two hour lunch break.

Everyone returned and two ladies whom I'm particularly close to - Thai Lady and Japanese Lady came upto me with a box in a plastic bag.
Japanese Lady was like "Mahima-san, we felt very sad you couldn't come, so we got you this.."
And it was 2 boxes of Chinese sweets (very delish!)
I was so touched I just reached out to Jap Lady and gave her a hug (literally, even when I'm sitting I'm at eye level with her...I felt like King Kong)
"Thank you A! This was so sweet of you!"
She and Thai Lady just bashfully smiled and said in unison ''Oh no probrem!" and waved off their kind gesture.

But here came the shocker - Remember KT?
She walked into the office, came up to my desk and put a box on it..
I opened it, peeked inside and just looked at her dumbfounded - she had bought me chocolate cake!
I said "This...?"
"Ya lor...I remembered you told me yesterday, you loved chocolate.."

Shit, it was such a sweet gesture, it almost made me forgive her for snapping at M (Ok, FINE, this might shock you but in reality, 'M' was me.)

Ah but dear readers, I am well versed in the devious ways of this world.
So my paranoia kicked and I started to wonder why she'd get me the cake in the first place.
And I came up with two very plausible reasons -
1) She must really like me - I did my research, she's never really done anything nice for anyone before. Most people only have unflattering things to say about her...OR
2) She must really hate me - This is her way of fattening me up.

But I'm gonna go with the first reason, because come on, let's face it- I am incredibly likable.
Also, I'd probably murder her in her sleep (picture Mahi standing over KT's bed, holding an axe in her hand - flash of lightning- ), if I found out she was trying to fatten me up. I mean I think I'm doing a pretty good job of that on my own, thanks!


Oh I almost forgot, my parents have returned from their holiday right?
My Dad did the oddest thing when he entered the house- He rushed in and gave me a big hug and said "We really MISSED you" and grinned.
Now my Dad's cool and all but he's hardly the 'huggy' type. He's hardly the type to even say "We missed you".
So I was like 'er...haha thanks...I think!"

And then he shoved a heavy duty free bag in my hand and said "We felt bad we couldn't get you much, so I picked this up at the airport.."
I opened it, and inside was a bottle of Bailey's!
I almost dropped the bag in shock..and then I got happy, grinned and said "Awww..Dad! You've finally accepted the fact that your daughter is a drunk! I don't know what to say!"

Dad just chuckled
Mom said something like "Alcohol is bad for health"
Bro said something like "She has to share half of it with me!"

And I thought "Ah it's good to have 'em all back."

Merry Christmas everyone! Celebrate, get drunk and get happy!
I know I will ;)

Ahaa! I always knew 'M' was you!!!
Maybe 'KT' really does like you after all...but I'd be careful! And test that cake, girlfriend!! She could be trying to poison you...and if the tests come out negative, share it with me for giving you this bright testing idea!(what? a reward for watching out for you, that's all)
And your Dad got you some Baileys?!!!! He needs to socialize with my dad and share some of his cool ideas!!=)

Guess that KT woman isn't that brash after all. But as Surbhi says, think you'll have to make sure it ain't poisoned. ;)

Your dad got you Baileys? You sure have a cool dad; really really enviable!

Mmmm...Bailey's. Almost as good as Amarula. Mmm...amarula. Mmm...creamy booze.

I getcha with that office paranoia. Got my company Christmas card today and I'm pretty sure Boss 2 wants to fire me but he can't because I'm family to Boss 1. Anyway the card said "Merry Christmas and All the Best to you In 2006." For a second I was all "All the Best? Is he firing me via my Christmas card. Is this way of saying my days are numbered." I plan on taking the remainder of my bonus and getting sufficiently drunk because I am too paranoid by far when it comes to my job. Well, especially when he told the new guy (who I secretly want to push in front of a train) "Yeah, we got big plans for you." Him? I been there 5 years. What does that mean? Am I fired?


So totally understand your paranoia. Office politics suck.

And your dad got you booze? Wow. Awesome. My dad won't even get me rum flavored chocolate. Course it's the champagne truffles that are the best. Mmm champagne + chocolates = best invention ever.

Merry Christmas back atcha!
