Trying To Get You Into A Sticky Situation

| Working | July 2, 2015

(I have a few of those free Apple stickers left over and stick one on my work laptop. It is very clear that it’s not an Apple product. You can even see the original manufacturing sticker through the apple.)

Coworker: *joking* “Hey, nice laptop.”

Me: “Thanks, top of the line in budget essentials.”

(We are both still laughing about it when Coworker #2 comes over.)

Coworker #2: “How come you get a new laptop?”

Me: “Huh, what?”

Coworker #2: *irate* “I have been asking for months and you just get one?!”

Coworker: *winding him up* “Well, he is the boss’ favourite.”

Coworker #2: “I can’t believe this! I’m speaking with [Boss]!” *storms off*

(We both crack up and forget about it, until later in the day.)

Boss: “[My Name], what’s this about a new…” *spots my old laptop sticker still in place* “Oh. Err. ”

(Coworker #2 is straining to see what is going on.)

Boss: “Keep up the good work, and maybe we can sort out some more new equipment for you.”

Me: “Like an Apple coffee cup?”

Boss: *winking* “Maybe even an Apple stapler.”

(Coworker #2 sulked for the rest of the week, until one morning ‘someone’ ripped off the sticker.  By that point I had loads more so everything on my desk is covered with them, much to Coworker #2’s annoyance!)
