One of the ladies I work with is going to have a baby shortly. She's in fact ONE of THREE exceptant moms in our little office. (no, I am not one of the 3) I sent out 2 e-mails explaining that we would be throwing her a shower and that I would be in charge of collecting the donation towards a gift anyone would like to go in on. The shower is THIS FRIDAY.
I just had a co-worker, Miss Snippy in fact, come into my office and ask me, "Have you STARTED collecting for the gift yet??"
Only for the last 2.5 weeks.
I realize that might be a bit demanding time wise. But we did the best we could.
