    I was in a production meeting this morning which started really early and I hadn't had my usual much needed dose of coffee. So when I got there, I thought 'fabulous!' - there was coffee and a lovely selection of pastries on the table. They were apricot and strawberry and chocolate and just looked phenomenal - there were also pieces of fruit dotted round them - strawberries and grapes.

    This meeting started and NO ONE made a move on the pastries. Meanwhile I start to salivate. The meeting lasted for an hour and by the end of it - NO ONE had touched any of them. So I became completely distracted as to why no one was eating the pastries. I usually just say what I'm thinking but it wasn't appropriate here.

    When is it okay to say 'Why is no one eating the pastries???!'

    What a waste of all that delicious stuff! I guess no-one wanted to be first person to take one. In this case it's better to have someone present them on a platter/tray to each person in the room.

    Who ever was holding the meeting and doing most of the speaking should have invited people to help themselves to the pastries and tea/coffee.
