I share an office with 2 women.
I am annoyed with one of them today because I keep a little candy stash in MY draw in MY desk in case I need something sugary and especially for those days when I am PMS’g.
So today, my co-worker asked me “hey can I get one of those chococalates?” I said “sorry, but I have no more” (they are mine, I bought them with my money, I can eat them) She gasps and says, what? all of them? and I said yea, there weren’t that many left, maybe 3 or 4. And she says “there were 3 or 4 but whatever, I am not judging” So I said, “what did you do? count them?” And she said no, but I did notice that there weren’t no 3 or 4″
I just needed to vent because I just thought it was rude that she caught an attitude with me because I didn’t have anymore of the candy that I bought but share if they should ask. Its not like I sit there and eat an entire bag of candy, its occassional.

Daizy914: What the heck is your co-workers doing looking into your drawer? That seems a bit odd and suspicious to me.

Treejewel19: I thought this too, but I am not established here yet, I have been here almost a year in July. ANd mind you, the person who asked for the candy is the HR director. . I don’t go through peoples draws unless I ask them for something and they say go in my draw and the person has to be right there with me

I would make a point of going up to her and saying, hey just so you know I have hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and that is my emergency stash that I need to use at my discretion so I don’t get sick, so unfortunately won’t be sharing. also I was wondering if you needed something from me since you went through my drawr, is there something I can provide you with? It’s not a total lie because everyine has low blood sugar at some point, and she will feel guilty for trying to take something that clearly isn’t in her right to take. Plus that in a nicer way makes the point of saying ur not ok w her going through ur stuff.

Your coworker’s comments were a bit much, for sure, but dude… it’s candy! You know whenever you are eating something in front of other people you need to be ready to share. It’s not about “my candy” bought with “my money” and all that… just know that if you have something yummy, people are going to want it. That’s life.

So, wait, you say you would share if they ask, but when she asked you lied. Right?
Regardless, they are yours to do with as you please. I’d probably try and be a bit more secretive about them if you don’t want to share.

UGGGGHHH so rude! One time I had a can of nuts hidden in my desk and someone took them out and eat then and put them on top of my desk so everyone can share! I threw them out. Now hen I have snacks in my desk I lock it!!

whoa_its_ash: no she means that she had eaten them all and the chick was like “ALL of them?! you fatso”, basically.

youre going to seem really petty if you ask her why she was “in your drawers”. She probably just noticed you eating one…
Personally I would rather share and be liked even if itheyre MINE from MY MONEY, than get possessive over a candy stash.

I would think it to be odd if a co-worker that usually brings candy and shares got their undies in a bunch over me asking for a piece. I don’t think what she did was rude given you bring a bag and do occaisionally share.
If she went through your desk, that would be one thing, but it sounds like you just didn’t feel like sharing today.

She wasn’t out of line for asking if you eat it in front of her and she sees it all the time. It would be one thing if you brought your lunch and she asked you for some — but it’s candy, that just sits there. Maybe she was pms’g and didn’t have cash for a candy bar, but she remembered you had some. Seriously, there’s nothing wrong with that.
What was weird was how she accused you of having more than that. THAT made it weird.

:/ Sorry, but I would have shared. If she was rooting through your drawers that’s pretty rude, but ot sounds like she just noticed you had some. A few candies is not worth coming off stingy like that.

stillme: whoa_its_ash: HappySky7: you are misunderstanding. I share the candy if they ask for it, but I really did eat the last three pieces. And she is accusing me that I lied about their only being 3 pieces.
