Help with this Ethical Dilemna!

Help with this ethical dilemna:

You work for Boss A.

But you also do some reporting to Boss B. But Boss A is your managing director.

Boss B is also a managing director.

Boss A and Boss B hate each other. Infact, they almost got into a fist fight on Friday! Currently HR is trying to sooth emotions. This is serious, as Boss B has almost issued the "it's me or him" ultimatum.

It is Boss B's birthday. His underlings have got him this Pecan Caramel Cheesecake for his birthday. (The kind you get at Marche. E.g. the greatest cheesecake in the world)

You sit behind Boss A. One of Boss B's underlings comes and delivers a slice of cake on your desk and says it's his birthday. You get a slice because you are friendly with his department.

Boss A returns to his desk and asks who the cake is from. Intern blurts out it's Boss B's birthday. (You make a mental note to urinate in interns coffee tomorrow)

Boss A says "hmm" although it might have been a "hmph" and then turns around and gets on the phone. Also to note, Boss A does not give Boss B a slice but has spread the wealth fairly evenly.

Do you eat the cake?

Factors to consider:

1. You are from a 3rd world country originally so the concept of throwing food out makes you ill. Also, giving food away in this industry puts you on Al-Quaeda watch lists.
2. You love this kind of cheesecake.
3. You are close to being a life size replica of Jabba the Hutt, so this cake will help you maintain your Hutt like specs.
4. You love cheesecake.
5. You tried to eat healthy at lunch, but the salad is leaving a nasty taste in your mouth. The cheesecake would take care of that.
6. the thought of giving it to the intern makes you hurl.
7. Boss B and his cronies are watching every move from their vantage 50 yards away.
8. This could be ploy by Boss B to sow disension in the ranks. It's almost like a Trojan cake! Ready to tear people apart. How the hell could someone use just a beautiful combo of cheese, milk, eggs, caramel, sugar for evil?

Do you eat the cake?

Personally, if I knew that Boss A would hate you for eating the cake, then don't eat the cake. It's only muthafuckin' cake.


WHY ARE PEOPLE SO FUCKING OBSESSED WITH CAKE? FUCK.

I hear you on the coming from an impoverished country's upbringing...I have a hard time throwing food away as well.

My recommendation would be to do the sikh rodeo dance with mentioned cake in your elevated hand, trying to catch the falling pieces in your mouth. A spectacle of this magnitude and comical intensity will make the warring factions forget all about their little quarrel.

**Bonus points if in your other hand you hold an opened carton of chocolate milk.

Spill something on the cake to show that it is ruined, visibly throw it out in front of Boss A. Walk over to Boss B's enclave, mention you spilled something on your cake and ask if you can get another piece. Eat it there in their presence. If there is not anymore left make the intern buy you some. Bridges maintained, caek acquired & devoured

1) eat the cake
2) if either boss says a bloody word about it, sit them down tell them to grow up and to stop making a negative work environment that is only hurting productivity and pitting good workers against one another.
3) Walk into HR and explain that these two bosses have a serious issue and that continuing to put you between them is not an effective sollution.


Basically your are allowed to have balls even if its against your boss.

I would seriously let this job go if it meant that I would be able to get a piece of caek. I have had that caek and let me tell you, it is absolutely worth sleeping in your car for a few months.

Wow, I really thought we could be friends Sunny.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I HATE cake.
I'll eat a cupcake maybe once a year.. And have a slice at my father's birthday.. But cake is really not my thing.

A meatcake sure!
I don't eat sugar. Sorry, sugar!

<3 gizmo must be one of the funniest men on Tribe.


I would throw the pie at the intern as this would accomplish several goals:

1) The intern deserved it for mentioning it's Boss B's birthday.
2) This would go over well with Boss A as you didn't eat Boss B's pie.
3) Boss B and his spies won't be too upset as everyone likes to see pie thrown at intern's face.
4) Though you didn't get to eat the pie you can always send the intern to go buy more pie, which serves as a secondary punishment.

You know, this plan might just work if he was dealing with pie here.

Cheesecake raises the stakes considerably.

Fine, I guess we'll have to be 'dim-sum pals' (I prefer mine filled with innuendo).
