This time it was a whole lot of items. From Cheese, Crackers, Vegetables and Ground Beef to Body Wash, Toilet Paper and cans. We headed back home and there The Chef asked me to take a few things despite the fact that I said I didn't need anything. He insisted to take as a gift for me driving him all the way down to the place. There were items that I wouldn't normally eat but I didn't wanna hurt his feeling. So I took them. Amongst them were Cinnerolls, Nutella and other junk food! So I thought what I should do with these? The best way was to leave them but we didn't know that we have been given these so I took them to work and presented them to the workers without them knowing it was from me! I just left them on the counter, in the refrigerator or in a cabinet.
There was only one item that I put there and people saw me and that was a box of Cinnerolls. They thanked me one after another and I was not happy that I was given credit for that but what could I have said?! The next day there was only one left in the box! That was when the great Persian poem came to my mind:
خرج که از کیسهٔ مهمان بود
هأتم تائی شدن آسان بود
What basically it says is: It's easy to spend, when you're using someone else's money! Of course there's no money directly involved but that food belonged to The Chef because he's not in a good situation and then he gave it to me and I gave it to other! Again, I should not have gotten get the credit for it.
