Choosing an appropriate card for someone can be a minefield at times. As can buying presents.
Luckily, I'm not a person who is hard to buy things for. At least I don't THINK I am. And many people have confirmed this for me.
However, I think my teammates outdid themselves. When I returned to work a week after my birthday, it was to find a present of . . . FOUR BOTTLES OF ROSE WINE!!!
Can you imagine my joy/fear-that-the-rest-of-my-department-were-going-to-think-I-was-an-alcoholic?
(The latter not helped by the fact that they had apparently left the bottles sitting on my desk on one of the days I was on holiday.)
And, although the card they gave me probably completely reinforced this image-of-me-as-a-wino, could there really have been a card that was MORE made for me than this one????
No, not at all. Right???
