I used to bake treats quite often. Would bring them into the office and have them set out in my hallway. Not on a schedule but probably every 2-3 weeks I would bring in cookies, homemade bread, or something. Sometimes leftovers from whatever I took to a church function or book club meeting.
A few years ago, I had a busy season and didn't bring in anything for a few months. One of the directors (Director Entitlement) stopped by my lowly admin desk and said something about "Hey, I noticed that you haven't brought any treats in for a while." However, he always complained that when I brought in baked goodies, he couldn't eat them since he was on the Atkins diet. (Didn't stop Director Entitlement from eating 2-3 pieces of cake. He just informed me that he COULDN'T have them on the diet.
) When I agreed that it had been a while since I had brought anything in, he placed his "order".
Wait, dear E-Hellions, it gets oh so much better. Here is the conversation:
Director Entitlement: Yeah, since you haven't brought anything in, I think you should bring something in this week.
Me: Or not.
Director Entitlement: You should bring in Bacon-Wrapped Scallops so I can have them since I am on the Atkins diet.
Me: *blink blink * Wait, what?
Director Entitlement: Bacon-Wrapped Scallops. That's what I want you to bring in this week.
Me: Make them yourself
Director Entitlement: I think you should bring them in. You cook.
Me: No. That isn't going happen. Never mind that scallops are expensive (Landlocked state we live in). And never mind that I haven't made them before. And never mind that they wouldn't keep well. But two major issues with your plan. I don't like scallops. Not. At. All. And I am not Burger King and you can not have it your way.
Director Entitlement: Well, it was a good idea
Not entirely polite, but it was the only way to get him to understand that it was not going to happen.
And for the record, I did bring other treats in a while later and he still scarfed them down even though it wasn't on his diet.
