The damn food-stealer just got a mouthful from me.
And I’m not talking stolen food, either.
Today, my coworker K offered to make a Starbucks run for us. Now normally, I don’t get anything because, ever since they got rid of their Coconut Creme Frappuccinos, I’ve had no idea what to get from Starbucks.
K advised me to look online and I decided on a delicious Chai Tea Frappuccino.
Since about seven of us ordered drinks, K called as she was on her way back so I could let her into the building/help her carry the plethora of drinks.
We climbed the stairs and stopped at the first cube to hand off drinks to two of our coworkers. K pointed out that the last one in my drink carrier was my drink.
Trying not to look and failing miserably, I saw the damn food-stealer’s eyes get really big as she eyed my drink.
I tried to turn and run but she blurted, “Freshcracker, what did YOU get?”
Notice she didn’t ask about anyone else’s.
“A chaiteafrapp,” I quickly said.
Without missing a beat, the damn food-stealer said, “Mmmmm can I have some?”
I saw red.
And my coworker’s probably saw red. On my face.
Finally I said, “You are ALWAYS taking my food!”
The damn food-stealer’s face went red and she attempted to shift focus to K for not including her on the drink order.
We all ignored her.
Damn, that felt good.
p.s. I am employing the slap method (Jimsmuse, not quite as radical as a fork, but I may have to work up to that) next time her bony hand comes anywhere near my food or beverage.
