Last month I started a new job working at a cannabis dispensary. I’m currently working as the nighttime assistant manager and then I am going to take over for the manager when she is promoted in a month. I have had a hard time getting to know my employees, so my wife suggested baking some cookies to bring to work. Last Friday when the store was busy, my wife brought three dozen chocolate chip cookies to the cannabis dispensary. Each one of the employees got freshly baked and warm chocolate chip cookies. My wife and I talked for a half an hour and then she went back home. After my wife left, every one of the budtenders had nice things to say about her. They told me to thank her for the cookies and they seemed happy to accept cookies anytime she baked more. When my wife brought cookies to the cannabis dispensary that night, I did not realize everything would change. Suddenly all of the budtenders were much more friendly and helpful. The delicious cookies brought everyone together. During the past week, I haven’t had any problems getting people to do what I need and I am generally feeling more respect from the employees. They say that the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but I think that is true with everyone. Food has a way of making people feel warm and happy and my wife is the best baker in the entire Midwest area. She makes cookies, cakes, and pies that would rival Julia Child.
