I JUST had this happen to me 2 seconds ago.

My co-worker brought biryani in and kept offering it to me. I was like “no thank you” over and over. Finally I literally covered my face like a child and said “NOoOoOoo! PLEASE NO! I’M TRYING TO LOOSE WEIGHT.”

I always make a joke. “Trying to fit into a wedding dress here! Ask me if I want a cookie one more time and I will blame you for being fat on my wedding day!” Co-workers will usually laugh it off and they get the hint.

Ugh I would definitely be annoyed! Why doesn’t she get the picture? It seems like offers like that come up even more when I’m trying to eat healthier too!
 
The lady who sits by me always finds out right away when someone brings some kind of snack/treat into the break room. She’ll go get herself some, tell me about it, tell me I should get some and if I haven’t gone and gotten any within 5 minutes she’ll get up and go get me some (without even asking me) and bring it to me lol.

Man, I’d kill for coworkers offering up cookies!

Actually I’d kill just for coworkers.

It’s nice that they’d offer but then really annoying that they keep coming back! I work with a bunch of vultures so when food is brought in or left over after meetings it vanishes quickly! My coworkers are great people but attack food like they haven’t eaten in weeks!

Say no thank you, i don’t like milanos. maybe she’d stop offering those anyway lol. Put a sign on your door, that says please don’t feed the coworker! Maybe she’ll take the hint! 🙂

I can see this issue becoming the next big “office culture” issue that pops up. Although its really nice to share your food – there are so many people struggling with weight issues and diabetes and it’s hard to resist when people are forcing food on you. My coworker just made me eat half of her fries. Ugh.

@MissCallieJean: Hahaha I was just about to suggest a sign.

Only one of my coworkers does this, and in addition to trying to force random cookies or chocolates on me, he reeks of cigarette smoke (sits in his car on his smoke breaks because he doesn’t want to stand outside in the rain). So even if I wanted one of his offerings, the stench cloud he brings into my office makes me lose my appetite!
