I work in an office where cutlery is like gold. You could leave a million rand on your desk and no one will touch it. Cell phone too. nothing will happen to it. But get one of those 100 piece silverware set – and all those forks / knives / spoons will be gone within the hour.
Old Tannie usually packs her teaspoon away each afternoon before going home, but this one afternoon, she didn’t for some reason. And she knows that I have one on my desk all the time. And I won’t deprive anyone from having their cup of morning java or tea – so when she asked if she could borrow it, I was like “sure, no problem at all.”
If you calculate how long you use your teaspoon to make a cup of coffee, it should take maybe 5 minutes, close to 8 if you still have to stand in line for the kettle or sugar pot. . . My teaspoon was missing for a good 15 minutes . . .Can you say suspicious?
I hunt down Old Tannie and catch her eating breakfast with MY teaspoon!!?? Whaaaaaat????!!!!!
Oh hell no! Bunny don’t play like that – you not even related to me! I flipped out, maybe more than I should – but you know the principle of it all . . .
And then she tells me its because her spoon is gone, so she decided to use mine.
Hold the phone.
And when she gave it back to me, all she did was hold it under a cold running tap to rinse it off? Did my OCD kick in!
I washed it with dishwashing liquid, poured boiling water over it, and then washed it again. It has never been so shiny and clean before!
Ok – I will admit I overreacted – but you can’t come to me ask me for the teaspoon to make coffee and end up eating your breakfast with it. No – no – no . . . . . . .
So now if you want to use anything from my desk, please fill in this questionaire and return to me within this time limit; thank you.
