I was asked to close my eyes and turn away, so I wouldn’t see my colleague’s contribution to the fund!
I often find I’m adding my own money for those who have no cash. Sometimes I am paid back, sometimes I’m not..
I feel bad when colleagues based in different offices can’t contribute to a leaving gift, so I just sign their name on the card instead.
I’m sure everyone in the office would love to collect more for people, to celebrate even smaller events, but there’s no real easy way to do it. There are a lot of us!
The office is big, so actually getting to the staff and asking them for a contribution is really hard. I don’t think people bother because of that.
It can be very awkward, when you know some people don’t want to, or can’t afford to contribute, but feel embarrassed when they’re asked to do so in a busy office.
Sometimes the thing stopping me from starting a collection is that there’s no real place for me to hide the envelope! I’ve tried using folders, ring binders and even sometimes books!
My boss currently owes me £65 that I have contributed into office collections on her behalf. I’m sure she has every intention of paying me back but it’s becoming a bit awkward.
