Office Treats in my FACE

Recommended Posts

I love this! Need to work on this!! Great article.

You have lots of great advice up there! And for the record he was totally rude to force it on you.

I don't want to give him the complete benefit of the doubt (I do think it was a tad rude of him to completely disregard my wishes), but I think it could have also been in the way I said no thank you. Looking back, it probably come across as, "Oh, I couldn't POSSibly!" as opposed to, "Oh, no thank you *winning smile/get back to business*" Though I do recall saying, "I can't..."

Seems like I need to be more firm in my delivery.

This is where this little gem comes into play.. "I'm currently on a dairy/gluten/soy challenge to check my allergies.. doctor's orders." :D

Also, THIS. I think I'll be incorporating this into my now-firm "no thank yous." Thanks!

And thank you to everyone else for the awesome advice :D

I don't like the whole lying idea, tell the truth and make them respect it. I get mean if I have to if they keep pushing.

:) i knew it! and you're totally smirking as you type that too. i can tell.

also, this article seems pretty timely for this thread. didn't really read the whole thing, but i'm sure there are some takeaways that apply here: http://lifehacker.com/5875337/how-to-say-no-without-being-an-asshole

You see right through me!

I like that article. Especially the part about not making excuses. I hate feeling like I need to explain why I'm not eating something. I just don't want it. I may want it later. I may not. I may never eat it again. I'm not concerned about what YOU'RE eating (though, if anyone should be concerned about what they're eating it's probably most other people).
