    I was sitting at my desk this morning, minding my own business, when there was an inter-office envelope dropped off addressed to me with no sender.

    I open it and it's a Weight Watchers cookbook.

    :?

    I'm pretty quiet and shy and I know I haven't talked to anyone about losing weight other than a male co-worker that I've worked with for 16 years. I know it wasn't him.

    I've heard they have some pretty decent recipes - may as well look through it and see if any of them look like they would be worth trying

    but the "weight watchers" would have me a bit put off - even though I really really should do something about the extra bulk I'm carrying around

    I tend to have a little harsh reactions to things like that, but I would put it in a visible place in the office with a big note reading: "Please take it back. When I need your opinion I will give it to you".

    I would do the same. We are not here to judge other people and it would have me so mad. :? :evil: :evil: :twisted:

    I don't know what to think. Insulted that someone thought I could use it. Wondering if they thought they were being nice and thoughtful by giving it to me, maybe one they had and didn't want and thought I might like it? I have never had any issue with anyone here, been here for 16 years, and couldn't imagine anyone I know doing it maliciously.

    Still, unless I asked for it or expressed an interest, it's no one else's business that I could probably stand to lose 40 lbs.

    I'm with you Pam...that would have me going a bit more than "Hmmmmm"

    The way it was done was kind of rude I think.

    Don't let it get to you, just keep making your beautiful quilts for us to see. :)

    don't be hurt. it says nothing at all about your quality as a human being. it speaks volumes however about the lack of character in whoever pulled such a snotty stunt.

    tear out the pages and put one recipe on every desk in the building. post a notice that you couldn't keep such a generous gift all to yourself.
