Free at last - Candy Girl is moving!!

Well I sit near the "candy girl"

You know - those people who put a basket of candy on their desk so the whole office can enjoy.

Well - I can't stand sitting by her. All day long people come over take candy, and unwrap it as they walk back to their desk. So all day long I hear wrappers, gum popping, sucking, smacking, and not to mention the sight of fat people walking by, looking at the candy basket wondering what to take - and then walking away greedily unwrapping their treat before shoving it into their pie hole - crunching and smacking all the way back to their desk.

I like this girl - but she puts out this "feeder" and I don't like the people it attracts. I see people who will open up her desk drawers looking for candy if there is something they want and it is not in the basket. (I have told her about this - now she locks her drawers)

Today a huge box arrives, and it is $100 worth of candy!! WTF - who spends $100 of their own money to feed these greedy vultures (these people make enough money they can afford their own mints.) There were 3 people at her desk as she was opening the box licking their chops waiting for a blowpop or what not.

Thanks - Now I get to hear some guy sucking on a lolipop - then chewing and poping gum!

Anyhoot: in about 7 days she will move up to another floor - and I hope she takes her candy with her !!

She's tricking them into slowly contracting diabetes, then dying a few years early.

You should sing "I Smell Sex and Candy" while masturbating at your desk.

Numbnuts, you can't get diabetes from eating too much sugar. :P

People that put candy on their desk invite a disruption into their workday. I don't get it.

But too much sugar does make you fat.

Ridiculous. Of course, once she moves, the resposibility of providing the candy will shift to you.

$100 is a business related expense thus tax deductible.

I have a women at my work that has a dish of candy, but it's not nice candy it's always some old shit I think she want's to get rid of. She chases people around the damn office saying, *honey you want some nummy nums?"

I'm at the point when I hear that phrase I get a chill down my spine. Who in there right mind says "nummy nums" to adults?

Takeover your Candy Girl's position, and put the worst and most disgusting candy in a bowl, then set it out for all freeloaders to enjoy. Maybe grab a bunch of black licorice and put them in the bowl with other candy so it all smells.

In places I've worked that only makes it worse because then the freeloaders stand around, bitching and complaining, about how there's no good candy anymore. Amazingly, charity becomes the expectation.

So now the fat people will become angry when there's no candy at the trough, become enraged and attack you !! Better start building a defensive wall/moat around your cubicle !

People do complain!! Like I said if the trough is out of a particular candy - they will go through her drawers looking for the candy and help themselves.


I should put those tuna candies in there... but I think everyone will know it is me.

It's an acquired taste, but it's good!! It's not a candy per se, but if you put that out, you'll be my favorite person.

I know exactly what you mean. There was one woman around here who used to always say she was going "potty". Mind you this woman was around 50 years old. Like you I would shudder every time I heard it.
