So the other day, another employee here in the building, came into our office and asked if I wanted a Shamrock shake. I was thrilled, and I told her, "Yes!" When she left the room, I took a drink. Now when you hear the word shake, you think of a thick, creamy, cold beverage. This was not the case...
When the liquid came through the straw, it was warm, thin, and creamy. I have to say, it was pretty terrible. Although the taste was horrid, I thought, "Maybe the next sip will be better." It was not. Same thing, and that's when I put the drink down. I then started my work, and forgot all about the shake and left it here over night. (Gross I know)
So today, I'm walking down the hallway, when I right next to me, bam! The girl who gave me the shake, and she kindly asks, "Did you enjoy your shake?" I smiled and said, "Yes, it was delicious." "Whew, dodge a bullet there,"is what thought, as I continued down the hall.
When I get back into the office, Selena IMMEDIATELY gets on me for leaving the shake out overnight. The next comment was the worse one though. Eric turns around and said, "Oh, I may have ratted you out." I ask why and he replies, "Will the girl that gave you the shake (leaving her name out) stopped by while you were gone, and asked, Is that Crockett's shake I gave him yesterday?" To which Eric replied, "Yes."
So now I have to try and avoid her for the rest of the day, and hope she forgot all about it over the weekend. Ever run into this mess before? Tell a lie, and then immediately after the person finds out? I always seem to end up being the bad guy, I thought I was doing the right thing! What am I suppose to say, "No it was warm, melted and horrible. Thanks for nothing!" I think not. So am I jerk? Doesn't matter, I'm going to avoid her anyway and hope this never is mentioned again.
