Sugar Baby is our resident guru of all things tasty and sweet. Yes she is only 3 years old, but in matters of candy, age aint nothing but a number. Our faith in her is unwavering, and our reward has been a keen insight into the world of candy and sweets like no other. You can find a skeptic on every corner, but a rock solid sweet tooth? Those are few and far between. However if you are a skeptic with doubts, go ahead and Tweet or email her your innermost candy dilemmas or sultry chocolate temptations (you can do it anonymously). Hopefully she will deem it worthy of her time and provide you with a life-altering response. As she would say: “Smoooches!”
Let me make this short and to the point. I am lawyer at a top law firm in the city which requires me to work at least 80 stressful hours a week. The only thing that keeps me sane is candy, I have a huge candy bowl on my desk filled with NERDS, Jolly Ranches, Tootsie Pops, AirHeads, Hershey Kisses, etc. Whenever I get super-stressed out or demoralized about something at the job, candy saves the day!
I’ve noticed over the past few months candy has been systematically disappearing from my desk. Through some stealth-like detective work I have discovered that the culprit is one of my firm’s founding partners! What should I do? I’m up for partner this year and I’m afraid if I confront her or make a big deal out of her thievery she’ll convince everyone to pass me over. On the other hand…she is STEALING MY CANDY!!!

So you’re a lawyer…can I charge you billable hours for my advice? I know I should, you would do the same to me because you’re a lawyer. But you know what, I’ll go ahead and do you this solid out of the kindness of my heart.
First of all I wouldn’t let anyone, and I mean anyone, come onto my property and steal candy from me…no sir! She’s stealing your Smarties, your Gummy Bears, your Skittles, your Taffy and you’re just going to sit there and take it?!? Take the abuse just so that perhaps, by chance, maybe one day you can make ‘partner’ and have the honor of working 100 hours of week to earn more money to buy more candy that will be stolen from you? Are you really asking me if this is OK?
It’s time for you to grow a pair. You need to get remittance for every single piece of candy that has been taken from you…in one way or another. Don’t settle for less, I’m not advocating fisticuffs but I’m not against it in this type of situation. If this costs you your future as a partner, or your job or a situation with law enforcement officers it’s OK. It’ll be worth your self-respect, the ability to look yourself in the mirror and know that in your heart of hearts nobody on this earth will ever think it OK to take a single piece of candy from you. That type of comfort is priceless…so man-up bro!
