Most of the people I heard from thought it was a really cute idea and they likes getting to meet people that weren't in their department. Points for the FC, always a good thing.
But then a few co-workers started to inform me of the darker side of the balloon exchange.
- Apparently one obnoxiously crabby person came in, saw the balloon on their desk and popped, never giving it to the person they were supposed to.
- Someone on the other side of the building didn't give the balloon away because she was, and I quote, "scared of those people from the other side." May I mention that I am one of these people?
- There was a piece of candy attached to each balloon as a weight. Some people were keeping the candy and just giving the balloon away.
Seriously, sometimes I feel like I work with a bunch of pre-schoolers.
At least this group is potty trained.
