Tip for when someone brings gross treats to share at work:
Oftentimes people will bring homemade treats to share at work. By all means this should be a happy and delicious occurrence, but sometimes due to deficient cooking skills, it becomes a sad and awkward occurrence. If you find yourself offered something less than appetizing and want to save face, follow these simple steps:
1. Force yourself to take one bite
2. Smile and say something along the lines of ”yummy”, or if you couldn’t swallow the previously mentioned bite, “mmmm” will suffice
3. Pretend you have something urgent to do (“Oh, my Tuesday 9:23 meeting is about to start” or “I think I hear my phone ringing”) and slink away*
4. Once out of sight, swiftly dispose bitten treat into the nearest waste receptacle
*Note: Do not let the treat-offerer entrap you in inane small talk. After about 2 minutes it will start to seem suspicious that you are merely holding onto their once-bitten treat, instead of actually eating it.
