Please pass the cookies

Dear Co-worker,
the biscuits are there for all staff to enjoy with their tea,

Cheap? Moi?

Co-worker: (proudly) “I’ve never, ever been in a 99p shop.”
Me: “Really? So where did you get that outfit?”

Yeah, sorry. It was a cheap shot.

Caller: Hi, I'm just ringing to make sure your stationery supplies arrived.
Me: They did. I'm just testing them out now.

Dear Co-worker,
Please don't start a conversation with "Oh, that's interesting..."
