Forgiving the Crumpet Thief

Saturday February 8, 2020

At work today a senior manager shook an empty coffee canister at me and said simply "There isn't any coffee in the downstairs kitchen."

I was deep in my work so it took a few seconds for me to realise she must think it within my remit. I explained she could fill it up from the upstairs kitchen cupboard, as that was for staff. I am only responsible for delegates attending in training rooms. Not sure if it was the assumption or the canister rattling that bothered me enough to write this blog.

Later in the day I put two crumpets in the toaster, and when I came back for them a colleague who hot-desks occasionally was sat eating them, I heard him tell someone "I wasn't sure who they belonged to so I thought I might as well have them."

Work colleagues can be as perplexing as family members, and our reactions don't always fit the crime, can you guess which one irritated me the most?
