    $30 Company Lunch

    So someone is leaving our department here at work and we have been invited to take her to lunch. I really like the woman and will miss her. However, I don't like these company lunches that involve me ordering a entree I can afford and everyone going crazy and ordering drinks, etc. In the end the bill is divided equally and I always end up putting in atleast $30, usually more, so today I will stay at my desk and call a couple people while everyone else spends their money on greasy Mexican food and expensive drinks that taste like shite!!!!

    These people think I have money to waste or what?

    And don't think they not collecting more money to give her a gift. I contributed $15 towards the gift and plan on taking a quick trip to the microwave to warm up my lunch I brought from home. I don't mean to seem cheap but I just can't take the foolishness sometimes. All this money on lunch and then when she leaves no one will even keep in touch with the woman.

    Steups!!!!!!!

    I'm so sick of that here! Every month is some foolishness. Somebody b'day! Somebody wedding etc. It does cost me to come to work sometimes. And is the same chick who handles it. She have no class, "Robber, where's your money. You owe me!"
    "I owe you money?!! I borrow money from you?!!" I does tell them that I an I is Rastafari and we doh believe in dem tings.
