Off Topic

I feel that every place of business should have a big bowl filled with Halloween candy available at all times for their customers.

I feel that every place of business should have a big bowl filled with weed available at all times for their customers.

I have to agree that alcohol should be available at all business establishments, especially turnpike toll booths.

@Sandy, I'm sick of seeing glass jars out for tips at many places. Where will it stop?

derek harvey said...

@All lace---the convenient store beside my house has a tip jar?!

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

Kit Kats, Reese's cups, and m&m's only.
(A couple candy corns and See's suckers allowed.)

Jessi said...

I liked Enty's idea, but I like FSP's more!

Seven of Eleven said...

LadyH, that is awesome! We don't answer the door on Halloween (spastic dog that goes into Rambo mood every.single.time), so we put the candy on a stool at the porch entry with a sign that says something like, "Happy Halloween!" I am SO doing Tom Haverford this year!

Matt said...

that's a great idea, my friend

Seven of Eleven said...

@Lace, you and me both. I went to the liquor store the other day and there was a tip jar on the counter. For what? Ringing up my booze? Do I now need to tip the cashiers at the grocery store? IMO, tips should be reserved for wait staff who make under minimum wage (stupid law) and service people who do a great job (hairstylist, bartender, etc.).

AngelBear said...

@FSP - I LOVE YOUR suggestion!!! It would be a happier, more peaceful world if we could. But no real freedom in America.

Kno Won Uno said...

@7 - I did that once.
I stepped into the house for ~30 seconds and someone took the whole bowl, including the bowl. I thought that was pretty dickish.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Every place I go to just has bowls of suckers. I did go to a business last year that had a table full of cupcakes with orange frosting. You know I'm going back again this year. Umm-Umm.

Erin Kella said...

Ideally, they'd have one bowl filled with weed and another filled with candy :)

D Brown said...

Only if you have medical for diabetes and dental for cavities.

Angela said...

My liquor store has a bar inside for tastings & a patio if you want to have a cigar, I went in last week & stayed for 2 hours had to call a friend to pick me up.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

@Angela u cracked me up.

And. Can you put pizza in a bowl?

Years ago, a cool sweet woman I worked with was the receptionist and always had a stocked bowl of candy in her front desk(company paid for) and she lived it. Everyone came to visit her which they would prob do w/I the candy but they lingered longer with the candy. I filled in for her at times and that candy bowl drive me nuts! I COULDNT GET ANYTHING DONE!
Seriously, that dang bowl became such a deal after a while. I'd move it to a table in kitchen or lobby, and it would be back on my desk!! I had work to do, I paid the bills and employees - that shit has to be timely. But Lawd forbid that dandy bowl not remain in the same spot and stocked!

crila16 said...

Hell no. I have a huge bucket in front of me now. Everyone in the office is fighting over the mini kit-kats. I don't get it. I personally think the mini snickers are much more filling.

Sincerely,Your Friend said...

My typos suck.

teresa crane said...

Only if they are filled with Peanut Butter Cups

Cornbread said...

NO BECAUSE EBOLA.

I love Halloween candy: mini Snickers and Twix and Milky Ways, candy corn, and Dots (the gummies that will pull your fillings out). My dentist loves me.

My husband loves Easter for those damn Cadbury Eggs. I've never eaten one, but he loves them so much he freezes them to have throughout the year. Weirdo. Candy corn is way better.

On the tip thing. You know how people never tip at fast food places (even though they do the exact same thing as waitresses at "real" restaurants, yeah, I agree with Mr. Pink)

Well, I managed Long John Silver's (I think I mentioned it on that Duggar blind when I told how shitty they are as people) and the way I ran the store was so smooth, the workers would get tips all the time. It was always clean, food got out fast (we'd hand them their cup and tell them to have a seat and we'd bring it out to them instead of just handing them a tray with food on it and forget about them), we'd go by the tables and while cleaning tables (while wearing gloves), we'd ask them if they needed refills or any more sauce.

Basically we gave them a dining experience instead of the "I don't feel like cooking, let's go get some Long John's, eat it and go" normal thing. It got to the point people would come in and see if I was managing that night and would leave if I wasn't. Once I left the company, the store I worked at was out of business within six months after being the most profitable one in the country the last two years.

But yeah, I was so good, I was getting tips for my workers at a fast food joint and the other managers couldn't figure out why people wanted to work with me and not them.

AngelBear said...

@Rowdy - we definitely need more managers in businesses (not just restaurants) like you! It seems that most companies are completely stupid though and don't value their standouts like you. I eat out twice daily and find that no matter what kind of restaurant it is, it is often one disappointment after another. Very few people/places take pride in their work as you do.

RowdyRodimus said...

@AngelBear, thanks! It's like I've always said, I don't like working but when I do I do the best I can and take pride in it. I started as a cook and one day got caught up and started learning the drive through and front of store stuff and helping them, the district manager was there one day and promoted me then and there, after I had only been there a little over a month.

NaughtyNurse said...

And champagne. All year round.

astrogirl said...

Louis Vuitton Paris flagship store gives you champagne whilst you,wait for your purchases to be wrapped. I did feel like Mimi that day

Bee Haven said...

Ooh astrogirl! Which store? Did you make any purchases? I'm always too reticent to go into such high couture places.

Bee Haven said...

Good on you Rowdy. I'm sure all your diners preferred the experience.

Bee Haven said...

We have chocolate bars and cans of soft drink, bottled water in the office. We pay fir them, & all the $$ goes to the social club. Nothing, aside from tap water, nothing is supplied. Bring our own coffèe, tea, milk, tissues and cups/mugs.

astrogirl said...

Bee Haven the store on the The Avenue des Champs-Élysée. I bought a handbag and a collar and lead for my dog

bellaluna said...

When I was an office manager, I went all out with the candy bowl and seasonal stuff, too.

I went in the weekend after Thanksgiving and wrapped all the pix on the walls like gifts, and hung little stockings with each employee's name on them. It was fun!

Wendy Rene said...

I have Hershey's kisses and Reese's mini PB cups at my desk. Attorneys love them. I change out the bags as the holidays roll around. They're red, orange, yellow, and silver now. But I'll be replacing them with the Christmas ones soon (red, green, and silver).

Mine's more popular than the secretary's because I've got the good chocolate candies, and she's got some random, no-brand hard candies. hahahaha

It's the little things, people :)
