I am so HOT right now I could spit!! My husband came by my office while I was out and left a gift for me with the receptionist because my office door was closed and locked.
It was a two-pound box of chocolates with a note (in an unsealed envelope). I just came back and received the box and was all excited until… I opened the box and IT WAS HALF-EATEN!!!
I stormed out to the reception area and do you know what this chick said??? “Well the note said it was for you to share with the office so a few of us enjoyed a few pieces. It’s not like it’s a big deal, I mean—you couldn’t have eaten the whole box yourself anyway.”
WHAT??? So this b!*%[email protected] opened & read a card from my husband to me and then ate & offered to others my chocolates?? Oh HEEEEEEEEELLLLLL NO!! I told her I’m going to call Hubby and find out what it cost because she is paying me for it and if not in money, then I’ll take it out of her hide.
And I’m not kidding!
The unmitigated gall!!
And here’s what makes this a really stupid move on her part… It is not common knowledge because I don’t want preferential treatment & because I use a different last name professionally but… I am the owner of the company’s daughter. Big oops on her part, huh?

How inconsiderate. I can’t believe she did that.

Wow, that’s a new one. She obviouly lacks a little something in her social skills/common sense.

I can’t *believe* that anyone would read a card not addressed to them! sealed or unsealed that is inappropriate! And the fact that she shared the chocolate around before it had even been given to you, thats just ….well i have no words!

Wow. Just wow. I don’t read other people’s cards unless they are passed to me to do so, (like a shower or birthday party, or “Oh my Gosh, look at this hilarious card Aunt Edna gave me!”. And then to take eat the chocolate AND share it…wow. Just wow.

WTH? Why would ANYONE open a card/note written to someone else?
It could have been TERRIBLY personal and it could get you fired!

@Ryansgirl: YES! Heck, I could probably go out there and fire her right now if I wanted to as far as my position and my “familial tie” are concerned but she wouldn’t take it very well.
But in all honesty, I wouldn’t want anyone to lose their job in the current economy, but she needs to understand boundaries. Yeah, I’m extremely annoyed that she read my card & opened my chocolates, but moreso by the realization that she probably snoops regularly and might be reading sensitive documents that are absolutely none of her business (payroll information, tax info, client info, etc.).
The snooping is what needs to be addressed more than the eating of the chocolates, but I kid you not, that wench will be reimbursing me for the chocolates. It’s the principal of the thing. If he dropped off a foot-long Subway would she have eaten half & said, “You couldn’t have eaten the whole thing?”

OMG. I cannot believe someone would read a card NOT addressed to them, much less open a card not for them!! Umm.. note said it was for YOU to share (if you please), not for her to open up and give away!

Usually when people say that cant believe something someone did, I can see the other side of the story.
There is no other side of this story. How would anyone think its OK? I can kinda see sneaking a peek at the note, but to EAT the chocolate?!?!?

I’d be super pissed HOWEVER, I think you need to take a step back and breathe. Ok, so while your feelings are perfectly vaild! BUTTTTT, you need to calm down, I think making her pay is way, way over the top. Tomorrow (or after a day or 2) you ask to speak to that lady. You tell her that personal mail is PERSONAL, she is to never, ever open your mail unless specifc permisson is granted by the individual who’s mail is in question. Ream her out nice and good for disrespecting your privacy (because that the real issue right? not that she ate some chocolate). I’m all for the good solid ream out, but I think making her fork up the money isn’t the answer.
But, don’t presume I wouldn’t be just as pissed *oh, I would….* I think it matters what you do next though that counts.
