After I posted yesterday, it turns out that day 1 did not end so well after all. I walked into the employee kitchen to see my co-worker had knocked my chocolate cow’s feet to the floor and carelessly threw them into the sink. By the time they were discovered, it was too late. They had turned to mush and started melting down the drain. They tasted funny and I wasn’t about to finish them.
I'm also concerned about the office animals as it seems she favors the office cats over the office dogs. I'll be watching this more closely to see if this trend.
