To want to do more than raise an arch eyebrow at colleague?

Today I brought in a largish tin of biccies for our section (you know, the Family Favourites use-the-empty-tub-as-a-MP's-second-home size). There are currently 6 of us in the section.

I made a brew and took 2 biccies.

Colleague (moany one who was difficult when we were trying to book Xmas meal out) says in a pointed voice 'those biscuits are for everyone you know'

I gave her the Paddington Iklboo hard stare for a minute and said in a nice measured voice 'yes I know, there's plenty for everyone'

She says 'Well, I'm just saying'

Other colleague: 'Iklboo did bring them in'

Moany colleague: 'I know, but we should share them'

FFS - 2 biccies out of about 100???

AIBU to be a bit irked?

I'd be tempted to reclaim the whole tin as my own - and force colleagues to come and ask for a biscuit, or wait until they are offered one <evil laugh>.

Hope you enjoy the remaining 98....

I'm with piprabbit. But apart from that, biscuit

nickelbang Thu 05-Nov-09 11:16:59

i'd tell her "no biscuit for you then.

I think you should maintain eye contact, while systematically licking all the good ones and putting them back. Then offer her the tin.

What a moose!!

I'd have rammed one of those cigar biscuit thingys up her arse nose!

nickelbang Thu 05-Nov-09 11:18:17

seriously, this is the 2nd time i've forgotten to close my speechmarks!


piprabbit Thu 05-Nov-09 11:19:34

Ooooh, I love Chickenshavenolips idea. Go on Iklboo, do it, please, now.

<reminds self never to accepts biscuits offered by Chickenshavenolips>

Iklboo Thu 05-Nov-09 11:19:53

I'm tempted to revert to school days and say 'well you're not having any now. Come on friends' and the rest of us skip off to another room with the biscuits grin

YANBU! I would put them in my drawer and only get them out when she has gone to lunch/too the toilet. But then I am horrible like that grin

sockmonkey Thu 05-Nov-09 11:23:31

Oooh the perfect thread to use biscuit

Yes, lick them all and keep 'em to yourself. What a wierdo your collegue is.

fairycake123 Thu 05-Nov-09 11:24:17

God almighty, what a miserable bitch! What's her problem?!

Rindercella Thu 05-Nov-09 11:25:02

There is really only one response to this thread...


PuppyMonkey Thu 05-Nov-09 11:25:44

OMG, there's a biscuit emoticon. I am officially in heaven.

Tell colleague to naff off. Enjoy biccies.

posieparker Thu 05-Nov-09 11:26:07

I would ask her if she was still in that diet?

GunpowderTreasonAndDragons Thu 05-Nov-09 11:27:26

Did you take two of the same biscuit?

bellissima Thu 05-Nov-09 11:29:44

Can't do it anyway. am not Roger Moore.

If you took the two green triangle quality street chocs I'd have your guts for garters thobut.

Iklboo Thu 05-Nov-09 11:30:41

To be fair, no. Two different biscuits. Maybe that's what set her off.....

Iklboo Thu 05-Nov-09 11:31:22

You're welcome to the green triangles. I have been known to start wars over the caramel cup/barrel though grin

LoveBeingAMummy Thu 05-Nov-09 11:32:00

Just make sure you eat all of her fav biscuit

ZacharyQuack Thu 05-Nov-09 11:32:21
