I am a pharmaceutical representative, and part of our day to day consists of bringing lunch to clinics so we can share with new data and updates on our medications, ways to get prescriptions pushed through easier, and give valuable information for clinicians to stay up to date on treatment options. It's a generous thing for us to do as if allows for more time in the offices to speak with providers, office staff, etc. Lunches are a great way to get to know an office better and normally a really enjoyable part of my day.
With that being said, today was not the case. Since when are nice gestures not enough, and expectations have skyrocketed through the roof?! The variety of sandwiches, salad, chips, bread, cookies, mixed beverages, and let me remind you FREE was not quite sufficient enough.
Instead I got reminded by staff members under their breath:
1.) Aww you didn't get soup, we love Panera's soup this time of year.
2.) There are only two of the tuna sandwiches.
3.) Is there any pop?
4.) The cookies are smaller this time, and they even burned them.
It is very unlikely for me to create an entire post regarding a situation I need to vent about ... AND now I'm over it!
