awkward office veggies

Today at work a guy brought in some vegetables from his garden but by the time I noticed there were only two things left: a very small cucumber and a very large cucumber. This is okay, because I adore cucumbers, and if I get a big one the guinea pigs can have some too which they FREAK out about. If there's anyone in the office more excited about a free huge cucumber I'd be shocked.

The issue is that I felt a little weirded out just going up to him, in an office of all men, who are engineers therefore not terribly mature, and saying "I want your huge cucumber."

Oh, and then there'd be the actual taking it and walking around with it back to my desk which also sounded like a weird phallic disaster.

So I just avoided the whole situation all day until the very end, when nobody was around, and somehow he was still there and so were the cucumbers. I got mine. And walked out to the parking lot with it, because it wouldn't fit in my bag. It's gonna be awesome. I feel guilty for thinking like a 13-year-old but better safe than sorry.

You definitely made the right move..lol

I can tell you for a fact if you had done that downstairs in the lab it would have been like a room of adolescents with the jokes and comments.

ya'know, had it been a lab cucumber I would have been proud to flaunt it. those guys are just more laid back. they've told plenty of un-pc jokes around me, I wouldn't be the girl who started the crazy because it's already there!

You were almost right to do it that way. I'm laughing my ass off right now. I know if I worked there I'd never let you live it down. Ha!

But think of it this way - you'd better hope no one saw you. Avoiding the situation and taking it secretly is worse in this case.

I laughed out loud and almost choked on (speaking of phallic objects) the banana I was eating.
