Last night, my boss treated the entire office to a buffet. Well, it was about time because it has been quite a long time since he did this not to count the Christmas party we had last year wherein he paid for everything.
I really thought it would be an excellently wonderful evening. We were going to be treated by our boss. A buffet may sound simple but everyone loves free food, which was why everyone at the office was in high spirits. He also chose a great place – with great food and comfortable atmosphere. Unfortunately, the “would be the excellently wonderful evening” was made embarrassing by a co-worker of mine.
Actually, it wasn’t that bad. But several of us wished he didn’t have to do those embarrassing things. While eating he jokingly complained a lot about the food not being perfect. The ribs were too salty. The soup was bland and taste like snot. The stir-fried noodle was dry. And many other complains. It was embarrassing, especially since other customers were able to hear him mutter.
It even became more embarrassing when he began with his funny childish antics and outburst of stupidity. Like a child, he took one of the balloons and started playing with it. After that, he started playing with the toothpicks and table napkins, then the glasses and the straws. He did them all, while other customers and employees could see us.
Worst of all, he began to flirt with some university students using my name. WOW! Afraid to use his own identity much!
But am I annoyed with this. No. To be honest, even though what he did was embarrassing, it was fun to be honest.
