Should I bring treats on my last day of work?
- 0Aug 21, '12 by esunadaIt will be my last day of work soon and there are about 30 people I work with. Is it common courtesy to bring treats on your last day of work or does the supervisor/coworkers normally bring something? If I should bring something, should I bring cookies, candy, brownies, or what do you guys think?
- 0Aug 21, '12 by AeternaWhere I work, it's usually the other way around - the staff get the person who's leaving something! But, I'm sure they would not mind if you brought a little something on your last day. Heck, I even bring treats to work for no reason at all (I like to bake sometimes and I live alone, so I bring what I bake to work so I don't end up eating the whole batch myself!) and everyone loves it.

If you like the people you work with and will miss them, treats are a great idea. Most of my co-workers I didn't care for, so again no treats, lol.
One random night about a week before my last day, I decided to order pizza and wings for my unit that consisted of 6. They didn't know it at the time but that secretly was our party.
