Challenge Myself: Day #188 A Tip For a Cranky Co-Worker

Today is Day #188 of the Just For Today Challenge. I am also integrating the Live Happy into my daily Challenge. The Live Happy Challenge for today says to greet a cranky coworker with a plate of cookies.

The book says,

Bake some cookies in the office microwave or bring them from home. If someone in your office often scowls, chronically complains, or flies into a hissy fit with little or no provocation, offer him/her a plate of warm chocolate chip or peanut butter cookies.

Even if they are refused, you can be assured that you at least tried to bring a little pleasure into that person's life. The gesture may work or it may not.

Some people are just so used to being unhappy and feeling like the whole world is against them that they are outside their comfort zone when someone does something unexpected and nice for them.
The truth is that they are more likely than not hungry for friendship and attention.

We all have a bad day here and there but I know there are some who have more days than happy ones and show up for work moody every day. I had a boss like that once. What a great idea that I never thought of, just take them a plate of cookies.

Just For Today: Put a smile on someone's face with a plate of cookies!
