Company Creates Candle For People Who Hate Workplace Meetings
We all know the sheer tedium that takes hold when a work meeting has dragged on forever.
While you'd love to get up and walk out, calmly informing everyone present that this isn't worth your time, you have to play these things safe - otherwise you know you're running the risk of being called in for a different type of work meeting with HR.
So next time this sort of thing rolls round, you should just calmly pull out one of these candles and light it on the desk.
Better yet, just have it burning before the meeting even starts.
Whiskey River Soap Co is selling these bad boys online, so you know where to go for the perfect passive-aggressive Secret Santa gift for that meeting-loving middle manager in your life.
The company describes the candle as: "The icing on the arsenic cake that is any weekday morning, afternoon or evening.
"And speaking of evenings... didja have to schedule the WebEx for 6.15pm on a Friday, Becky? All to tell me you'd put feedback in the Powerpoint? Because you couldn't put that in a f***ing email? Don't worry. I'll text you all my feedback on Saturday around dawn."
Interestingly, it doesn't smell like utter contempt and disdain for your colleagues - instead it's scented like 'Bourbon in my Coffee'.
The company also has the perfect candle for the person who always seems to get left out in the family.
The Middle Child Largely Invisible Scented Candle, by Whiskey River Soap Co, is ideal for the forgotten middle kid, who is used to seeing their older and younger siblings lavished with attention while they fade into the background.
For just $19.95 (£15.50) you can pick up this candle, which comes with the cheeky message 'go ahead and dye your hair purple. No one will notice'.
The candle features purple wax, is 'purple haze grape scented' and has a 60-hour burn time... of course, if you really wanted to play into the stereotype of the 'forgotten middle child' the best thing to do would be to not get them anything at all. Ahem.
