Along the lines of "what were they thinking" I have to ask who put giant JAWBREAKERS in the conference room candy dishes? And what happened to the smarties? now that was a funny pun! And the tiny chocolate hershey bars and krackles? Where did they go?
OH I'm sorry, are you lost?
See recently our conference rooms (and we have oh 20 or 30 of them) replaced the boring mint candy dishes with funky candy. Sometimes there are jolly rogers, or butterscotch or caramels or tootsie rolls. On a great day you get some Hershey mini-candy mixed in. (remember, lawyers are cheap bastards who will stop at nothing for free food) Sometimes there are smarties, which I think is a hilarious pun. Plus I love them.
Yesterday I went in to raid the candy dishes - Monday mornings are the best because they've refilled them for the week - and what do I find? GIANT JAW BREAKERS. Ok, that's funny, too, because who the hell can have a conversation with a mouth full of giant candy? So they're trying to get us to either 1) stop stealing the candy or 2) shut up during meetings. Or both. Well hell, you can't stop me, I took the jaw breakers back to my desk while writing my latest report, and lamented the loss of the chocolate and the smarties.
