One way to end a meeting

A few years ago, Mr. Caffeinated brought home this story from work.  It remains one of my favorites:

“I was in a meeting with a colleague who just wouldn’t stop complaining.  Nobody was doing their work properly, the office was too cold, the copier didn’t work, their office was terrible…

I was trying to wrap things up, so I put on my coat, stuffed my hands in my pockets, and there discovered a reminder that we had a baby at home.

I pulled a out a pacifier, and handed it to my co-worker.

“Here, suck on this; you’ll feel better.”

… and I walked out.”

I still wish I could’ve seen the other guy’s face.

I am a farm-raised homeschooling mom. I take great joy in making nutritious food that inspires people to take seconds. Thirds, anyone? We are a God-fearing, Christ worshiping family that enjoys good friends and good eats. If the kitchen is clean and the living room carpet is visible, then that's a nice bonus.
