The offices of the popular shopping app, Browze, are a fine place to work. There’s bowls of goldfish all over the office, a Wall of Fame for employees who do a good job, and a couch that looks like a giant pencil. It really is a fun place to work. Oh, and once a month, on a Friday, the boss orders in cinnamon buns from the hottest bakery in town: SweetTooth.
Well guess what? This past Friday, there were no more cinnamon buns by the time I got in! All signs point to Janet because gee, um, I don’t know–she took two fuckin’ cinnamon buns! WTF Janet? Everyone knows you show up earlier than everyone else, so you must’ve taken one early. And then, I walk by your desk and there’s another wrapped in a napkin for later. Um, are we hoarding cinnamon buns, Janet??

Granted, these are only cinnamon buns, but is this really about amazingly prepared baked goods by 4-star rated bakery on Yelp? Methinks not. This is about respecting your co-workers who deserve a treat for the hard work they do in accounting, as opposed to oh, I don’t know, a fuckin’ JUNIOR project manager! Jesus Christ Janet–you graduated college like, what, 3 weeks ago? And then you just waltz in and take the last cinnamon bun. Nice.
Maybe I’ve had to sit with HR in the past about my temper and maybe at the Summer Kickoff party a few years back I spent the night doing drunk impressions of Sesame Street characters that no one asked for, but whatever. I’ve been with the company for 7 years! One time I caught an accounting error that woulda fucked our profits for the quarter! Try doing that Janet, instead of posting a group photo (that didn’t include me) on our company’s LinkedIn page. Maybe try not to take the last cinnamon bun, too, mmkay Janet? This is real life. Not some meme that makes it ok to be inconsiderate!
