Temptation at Work
Wednesday, June 12, 2019
The location where I have worked since last June, has a gift shop and a general store (which is mainly a gift shop with alcohol and limited supply of snacks and a gas station). Usually when I go into work I am in the general store 1-2 hours before I relieve the morning person at the gift shop.
So the 2 pics above are in the general store. When I stand at my register those treats are right across from me. My boss said he tried getting some healthy stuff...protein cookies, kind bars, quest bars, protein muffins...etc. But have you ever checked the labels on those? The sugar, salt and carbs in them are outrageous!! For now, I ain't calling any of them a health food.
The boss will order new products to see what sells best in our little store. Before I started a new diet, I had asked for a new candy bar, and now we have a few of my favorites. But now I am on a diet and don't want them.
A few of my coworkers/ friends have noticed that I no longer get French fries in the EDR (employee dining room). As a joke they asked if I was feeling alright cuz they hadn't seen me pass those up before. Yesterday the kitchen staff made fresh gooey chocolate chip cookies and left some in the EDR and then brought a tray of them into the hotel lobby for the guests. Now the lobby is connected to my little gift shop. Yesterday I did not have any cookies. OMG..I could smell chocolate when guests would walk through my gift shop eating one of those cookies.
