To all my TMS/Intercruise friends who are reading this, I need to clarify something: I did NOT cry over chocolate! LOL
Chocolate is MY LIFE, but to cry over it is just a little silly (and embarrassing) :P
I cried because I was stressed out about the flash cake, tired from lack of sleep, hungry from 10 hours of non-stop work, and annoyed that newbs who started later than 7am went home while I, (and a couple others who started early) was left to work. With all of that already going on, when my 400g dark Belgian chocolate bar went missing, I just had enough of everything and broke down. So there ya have it, I cried because I was having a terrible day and because someone took something that belonged to ME.
Luckily, I got my chocolate bar back soon after I had lost it. Turns out one of the information technology guys who work on the cruise ships took it. When I find out who took it, I am going to knock the ____ out of him. No one messes with my chocolate and gets away with it!!!! For now, I am happy knowing that my awesome 7ft tall boss gave him a stern talk and backed me up. Apparently, the IT guy (a-hole) expressed that I was an idiot for crying over “a stupid chocolate bar”. My boss told him: “she’s not crying over the chocolate, she’s crying because you took HER stuff, and that’s just not right.” You tell him boss! :D
Besides losing some pride and dignity, something good did come out of this.
Yesterday, when I got to work, one of my coworkers said “I got you something”. (Probably some of my favourite words to hear :P) I got super excited and then opened his bag to find A GIANT TOBLERONE BAR!!!!!!!!!!!! I hugged the bar between my face and arms and tried to smell it through the wrapper. Even though it was 7am, all I wanted to do was eat it all right there and then. Gluttony!
Then, within 5 minutes, another friend said “I have something for you!” (I wondered how many more times I would hear that, haha!) She gave me A GIANT LINDT CHOCOLATE BAR!!!!!!!!!! I was jumping off the walls with happiness! I held the cool bar in my hands and stared at its shiny golden sheen. It was the most beautiful thing that I have ever seen :’)
I guess it isn’t always a bad thing for people to find out that you cried. Thanks again Jeanette and Ellis!!
