Oh my goodness! My crazed coworker is at it again!
She got a bad case of poison ivy and the treatment she used left her skin very dry/scaly. At work, I offered her some of my handmade lotion because she didn't have any lotion at her desk. She thanked me, and that was it. I never told her she could continue using it or anything. I come in the next day, and another coworker says to me, "Hey, I used some of your pink lotion! *Coworker* told me you let her use some of it the other day - it's great!". Uh, not really cool, but whatever. Later that day, Crazy Coworker comes over to talk to Another Coworker. As Crazy Coworker is talking, she casually reaches down, grabs my lotion, squirts a HUGE glob of it onto her hand, and also onto Another Coworker's hand! Just like it's no big deal. I said, "Hey guys, what's up? Why'd you take my lotion?". Crazy Coworker says, "This is the lotion we like the best!". I say, "Well, you've almost run me out - that's all I had of that lotion". Crazy Coworker says, "Well, then you need to make us some more. This is the one we like!". I didn't really say anything to that, just turned back around and kept working. However, that night I brought all my lotions home with me.
Nobody's mentioned anything so far, but we'll see. Unless I give the lotion to you, doesn't it make sense to ask before assuming you can use something of mine whenever you want?
