The price of success

So summer is coming and for this reason I need to be a little less successful. That makes no sense, you say. On the contrary.

My success lies in a little committee I founded at work. It is CLAS, the Cake Lovers Appreciation Society. It is up to us, our duty you might say, to ensure that people bring cake when cake is due.

There is a general rule here that on your birthday you have to bring cake. If you verjaar on the weekend, you must bring on the following Monday. Believe you me, we let no-one forget it. But why stop at birthdays, I say!?

So this week through shameless hinting, urging and reminding CLAS has managed to secure cake every day! On Monday it was for someone’s birthday. On Tuesday it was from this chick who is moving to the CT office. Wednesday it was from a guy who recently got engaged and today it was from this woman who started working here about 2 months ago… it was her “starting to work here cake” and way overdue if you ask me!!

Shameless, but success is really sweet.

I think that probably there is no limit to the amount of reasons CLAS can come up with to demand cake from people....

Lotus: LOL, well it can't be the teen pregnancy, so I'm going to kind of hope it's the adopted one!!!!!!!!!!

Ruby: personally I think that I should franchise CLAS and roll it out among dedicated members throughout SA's companies! You in?

Classic cakes! We have something similar at our office to CLAS. Only I always do the baking because nobody else enjoys it. What can I say... it's my therapy (along with blogging).
