I know it's kind of passive-aggressive to leave a note in the break room when you want to confront co-workers about something, but I feel you've left me with no choice. Someone has been stealing caramels and peppermints from the personalized candy jars on my desk.
Perhaps you thought these plastic candy jars were there for your enjoyment. A simple mistake, really, and one that I sought to correct when I sent that company-wide e-mail blast last week that said, "Do not take my caramels. Hands off my promotional candy jars." I even cc'd the CEO. But it seems that some of you didn't open that email, complaining that it had been my 40th nagging note of the day, or you just plain ignored it.
Could I put those personalized candy jars in a drawer? Sure, but then I wouldn't be able to enjoy them as easily as I do now. I can look up from my TPS reports and enjoy the logos and company information printed on them. I collected these plastic candy jars during some of my most recent trade show trips. I scoured the convention floors for the best personalized candy jars.
You didn't put in that effort. I did. And yet you want to reap the reward! You want free access to all the caramels your heart desires! Why can't you go out and buy your own peppermints? It's a free country. At least for now (more on that in another email).
I know it's hard to resist the custom Moose Promotional Candy Jar from Pinnacle Promotions, with its four-color laminated decal on the front and the Starlite Peppermints that reside in his belly. I realize the Custom Mini Baseball Tin with Hard Candies is perfect for athletic-themed events and alumni programs. I recognize that the customized acrylic apothecary jar is simplicity at its finest, with a beveled knob that offers elegant design and is easy to grip. I know these promotional candy jars are a great way to market your business and your brand.
But c'mon. Enough is enough. Do not force me to take more serious measures. I will go CSI on your behinds.
