My director has been very generous about celebrating the birthdays of our staff. She always provides a card and arranges for each employee to have his or her favorite cake. However, one colleague always ends up with a little something "extra." I have to say that I'm a little resentful of this, and I'm not the only one. Someone needs to speak up and tell our director how this makes the rest of us feel, don't you think?
