Saying No

Thursday, August 02, 2012

I have a pretty standard day job, I work for a bank. I'm at different locations often, so it keeps things interesting. For one, I have options about eating out without being unhealthy. I mean to say, I don't get sick of the little super-healthy café around the corner from X location because I'm only there once every month or two. The major downside to working for a bank?

Bankers know how to snack.

Don't believe me? Well, let's put it to this...you can't tip someone at a bank. At least not in money. You can tip any other service-based position, but we're legally not allowed to take your money except to put it into your account. So people bring us food. And lots of it.

And I've been learning to just say no.

I'm super happy with myself because I've not only passed up cookies today (with M&Ms, no less), but also candy. I'm holding back because I know I've got a yummy streusel cake waiting at home for me, and that little piece of indulgence later is all that I need. Besides, my smoothie is sweet every morning! Go me!

    I know how that is about working at a bank and having the customers bring in goodies. We have this one customer that brings in chocolate covered strawberries and cherries at least once every 2 months. It's hard to turn them down. But the good thing is I work in the back of the bank and the customer usually leaves the goodies up front where I don't see them. Keep up the good work! emoticon
