While browsing here, I saw this and thought it to be the perfect gift for a friend, somewhat tongue in cheek. I placed my order on Amazon, requesting it to be delivered to my work address, since I’m never home. The day it was delivered I was not in the office. Unfortunately, it was delivered to my old department (I recently moved from Training to Human Resources). My former administrative assistant was expecting an order from Amazon, reference books for our corporate library. Not paying attention to the address label, she opened the box. And was shocked to find what lay inside. Needless to say, it wasn’t what she was expecting and she expressed her dismay at the contents. Did I mention I work for a fairly conservative company?
I returned to the office the next day after attending an employment law seminar about harassment in the workplace to an opened box and a explanatory note on my desk. Oh, the irony.
