Throw The Book At Him

I don't know if you have a "book man" in your work but every month we get a new box of goodies to look through. The contents invariably contain one of the following:

- cuddly toy that sings/moves/irritates
- book of cats
- stationary set for (6)5 year olds
- useless gadgets i.e. plastic torch
- pop up book

Anyhow, these items are primarily aimed at children and spinsters with 10 cats. I don't know whether there's an overwhelming population of children or creepy old women in your work but how about something for everyone else? I suggest the following:

- DVDs/PS2/PC games
- books of actual interest i.e. bestseller list top 10
- beer/wine making material
- good gadgets i.e. USB pens

If this could be pulled off I'm sure his profits would soar like opening the pages of useless pop up books that he can't shift because no-one wants to hear Scooby-Doo noises when trying to learn how to read. What's that Shaggy? The letter "A" and the number "9"? Have a scooby snack!
We're also getting close to Xmas and the cuddly toys now play annoying sing-along carols with the added hilarity of a chipmunk on vocals. Someone find me a shotgun.

At least it's Friday. Have a good weekend and catch you at the usual place on Monday.

I don't get it... some guy gives your work free stuff and you complain because it's not computer games? Wish someone gave me boxes of random stuff..

It's not free. He leaves a box of samples for you to order the original item but there's never anything worth buying.
