    Just been to see a customer of mine who i helped this week and she gave me a bag full of baby stuff as she has a 3 month old little boy, she said its all brand new as he didn't get a chance to wear it i just thought it was such a lovely thing for her to do!!!! Has put a big smile on my face cos there isn't many of my customers who are grateful in my job thats for sure. Just thought i'd share my nice experience!!!

    Oh dear - perhaps you should have kept that one quiet! Thats why I was asing what you did - it's unusual to be able to accept gifts!
    They won't sweep it under the carpet and let you keep it just this once?

    It's so mean spirited for companies to say 'no gifts' espesially when it's a simple token of appreciation. Keep 'em honey, sod it. :D

    You're Office might have a 'gift' book and you can write down what you're bought and it's 'value'. If you put value as something ridiculous like under a fiver then you should get away with it. That's what they do in our office and it's Local Authority. xx
