A Piece of the Action

December 9, 2017

At the office, whenever there’s a birthday card to be signed for a co-worker, I always write the same thing: I know it’s you who’s been stealing stuff from the supply cabinet but I won’t tell anyone if you give me the biggest slice of cake. Surprisingly, I’m right most of the time. And I really get some amazing slices of cake out of it.



Iced Justice

Sometimes I like to cover a brick with cake frosting and leave it in a Tupperware container in the communal fridge at work. I always put a big note on it saying it belongs to a fake name, like Brad Millinbobble or something, nobody who really works there. Still, I know human nature being what it is people will try to cut a slice for themselves. Heh heh heh. 

I usually spot about three or four bent knives in the trash by the end of the day.

Company Lyin’

February 6, 2015

The gang at work took me out to a real nice restaurant to celebrate my many years with the company. Only, they made me pay. And, come to think of it, they didn’t tag along. And they told me to stay there for a long while – long enough, it turns out, to train my replacement and change the name plate on my office door.


I’m not sure if I should send them a thank you card or not.

Icing On The …

December 8, 2014

I was supposed to pick up a sheetcake for a co-worker’s birthday once but I waited ’til the last minute and had to decorate it myself. Since I didn’t have any icing or candy decorations, I spelled out “Happy Birthday, Chuck” in silly string. It looked like icing and I didn’t say anything when people ate it.

To my knowledge, no one became violently ill.
