We made a candy peom poster for our teachers too. We hung it in the teacher's lounge for Monday morning. Before the day was up, several peices of candy had been eaten off the poster. We also had taken a bowl of the same type candy to put on the table in the lounge, which was all gone the first day. I understand the bowl of candy, that's what it was for, but I have to say I was a bit disappointed that before the first day was up they had eaten the candy off the poster. We spent a couple of hours making the poster and had hoped it would at least make it through until Friday!!

Does anybody else think it was kind of rude of the teachers to do this on Monday? My husband is on staff at another school and said he would never had eaten the candy off the poster, but he talked to several other staff members there, who said they would have. I guess maybe I just don't get it.

Well, I've been working with our staff for 5 years now and they would eat the candy off the poster even if they have the same candy in the bowl. You or I wouldn't do this, but some people just don't seem to think like us and they have no clue how long it takes to hunt down that candy and put it all together and make it nice. I know it's disappointing. Maybe you could write what was supposed to be there under the candy so people could still enjoy the thought or even write "___ was stolen from this spot" so they know what happened. This is the exact reason why I am extremely reluctant to do something like this.

The irony of commitment is that it’s deeply liberating-in work, in play, in love. The act frees you from the tyranny of your internal critic, from the fear that likes to dress itself up and parade around as rational hesitation. To commit is to remove your head as the barrier to your life. --Anne Morris

I am thinking of using the candy bar poem and fully expect the teachers to eat it!! Is it for the teachers or is it for everyone else to look and say "Wow, they did a really nice job on that"
I think we need to remember the motivation for what we do-the reward doesn't always come back to us. The purpose of this one is to thank the teachers-let them eat it!

Yup -- good advice is to write the name of the candy (under the real deal) or draw a picture of the candy or include an empty wraper of that candy (instead of the real deal) on your poster.

If you do either of the latter, then you can have a bucket of all those candies with the poster and you have your nice poster and the nice candy give-away combined.

My husband and I lead a Christian life group. I've adapted the poem as follows for our retreat:

We just wanted to take a FastBreak to share with you what you mean to us… You are all SweetTarts and bring us such Almond Joy to be doing life together. You have all been LifeSaver’s to us and our time together has been Good & Plenty. I we could pay you all 100 Grand, we would – and what a sweet PayDay it would be – a real Skor! We’ve had Mounds of Snickers and some real Nutrageous times on our cruises. Remember the Whatchamacallit in Xcaret?! The Rieson we’re all here is to Treasure the Nuggets of Carefree time and spend some Extra Special time together. Relax, let your thoughts wander – be an AirHead for awhile – enjoy some Zero stress time - when the weekend is over, we can Kiss and Hug put on our Smarties hat, and go back home. We hope you’ll Take 5 minutes Now & Later to reflect on our time together, be blessed, and give thanks for each member of our group and their important Rolo in your lives. Staples Life Group – Life – it’s what we do. It has a nice Ring to it, don’t you think?!
