Where I work most folks get small gifts for everybody (candies, cookies, cocoa, coffees, etc) and we all exchange simple gifts.

I got one from one person, small pack of chocolate candies and a jar of cinnamon roasted almonds.

I unscrewed the cap to the jar of almonds and the "seal" under the screw cap had been pulled back half way and it looks like a small amount of nuts had been removed (maybe 5-6). It wasn't "quite" all the way full.

Um, thanks. I guess.

That was only to insert the Exlax coated nuts into the jar.

It's the thought that counts... But stuff like that makes me wonder the hell they were thinking!

Ask them where they bought it and if they still have the receipt so you can exchange them.

Now you know where the nuts in the party dish on table came from, huh?

That is low-life, really sad.

I would return it to them next Christmas.

Did you know that 80% of food poisoning and stomach illness/dysentary in the US comes from those bowls of mint candies or nuts at the front of restaurants? People have poor hygiene and reach in for a nut/mint or two and pass on their "filth."

Oh, by the way....enjoy the nuts.

I got a pineapple today as an office gift.

But at least it had a bow on it.

Tell them you are allergic to nuts, and ask for an exchange. Do it in fornt of the whole office, to put the asshole on the spot.
