As I was adding the second vat of chicken soup to the Crock Pot in the Break Closet, a new-ish person came in to the already crowded space. She glanced around and said, "Who made this?"
I paused mid-soup transfer. "Seriously?"
Come on. She isn't that new.
"Oh, you did?"
I attempted a smile and said yes. Encouragement to have some of the food was offered and I turned away to clean the bowl I was using to restock the soup. From behind me, I hear this:
"You must have a lot of free time after work."
I froze, mouth open in utter disbelief. Another coworker, standing parallel to me at the sink looked at me like a deer in the headlights. Then the new-ish person said dismissively:
"Oh, but Crock Pot soups are easy."
"Yes. They are."
I think I deserve a prize now, please.
