So I am at the office today working away as usual. At that point of my day the day had been going pretty well. To my surprise in comes a patient with a humongous gift basket. How sweet of this person :)
As I am thumbing through the goodies, I think to myself is there anything I can eat??? NOPE!!!! The only thing that was healthy in the basket was the wrapping :) So I held my ground and said no to the sweets!
As the day goes on more and more gifts pile up. All of it was food! I was very grateful that all these people wanted to do something nice for the office for the holidays, however- WHAT'S UP WITH ALL THE SWEETS!
I just don't understand why more healthy options are not available as gifts? I decided to do a bit of research on gift baskets at this point. I consider this work :) LOL. I kid you not every gift basket I found all consisted of nothing but crap.
Why is it this holiday is all about food? Don't get me wrong I appreciate the fact that people want to show appreciation toward one another with gifts. I just don't want food gifts! I understand that most people don't want a basket full of carrots, or a box of raisins. But come on gift basket makers at least throw something healthy in there!
At this point I was wondering to myself why are all these patients getting me food? I became such a girl at that moment, and began to psycho analyze people's kind gestures. I seriously sat there and thought people were bringing in all this crap because I am a plump princess. I kept on getting tempted and was not enjoying it! By the end of the day our lunch room looked like Charlie and the Chocolate factory! I can say that I did not try on single thing :)
Please give me your thoughts on gift baskets!
