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.
