coworker: Hey spleeness, I hate to leave stuff in your box while you're out but this came in. I thought maybe it was better to leave it with you, esp. as it didn't appear to be time sensitive. If it's any consolation I will refill the M&M jar when you get back.Thanks, man. What would I do without you?
me: haha. Yeah, any of that stuff, just leave for me. You thought correctly. Can you lick each M&M before filling the jar? Then maybe I will stay away. This time of year wreaks havoc on my willpower.
coworker: I have licked one M&M and put it back -- how's that for a disincentive?
me: Don't forget to hit up M's candy jar. The task won't be really complete until then.
coworker: I have already opened, sneezed on, re-wrapped and returned one piece of candy which I will not identify.
