    No one has reported being worked up over a candy bowl.

    The intent for a lighthearted discussion of the pros and cons of candy bowls in the offfice has been rife with assumptions and sprint runs up the ladder of inference.


    Really, the whole topic was just: “what are the pros and cons of office candy bowls” and there is no evidence anyone is worked up. It’s not an “issue” any more than “what are you eating today” or “part your hair in center or on the side: discuss.”

    The candy bowl is small potatoes to me. If someone in the candy bowl area doesn't want the candy bowl then the candy bowl is not small potatoes.

    Of course I don't care - the charts say I'm at ideal weight (i.e. looking like a Biafran) no matter what I eat.

    So here’s the debate: pros and cons on Office Candy.

    In this day and age, I am surprised there are candy bowls at work. Where I work there is a candy bowl after Halloween but no other time.
