When in doubt it’s always best to give someone the cold shoulder and withhold all affection, just to make sure they really know you’re angry.
After displaying outward disdain for a week, my staff did leave me an offering of flowers.
Flowers, BAH. They’re alright, I guess. I mean, they smell good. I just feel like they could have put a little more effort into this. For example, a tshirt that reads, “My staff betrayed me and all I got was this stupid shirt” would have exemplified at least mild effort and creativity.
If they were really set on the flower theme I feel that roses would have been a better option. Red of course, to symbolize the deep love that I know they must still have for me.
I also would have accepted cake.
Any cake would have been fine, that’s just a suggestion. Then I could be as happy as this cat eating cake. Except happier, because my cake would be a symbol of human groveling and repentance.
Maybe I should make a cake too, as a hint. My cake would look like this.
These are all just suggestions and I encourage you to use your own creative freedoms. However, if you think simple flowers are enough of a peace offering you have another think coming.
Looking forward to your future attempts,
