- Guy in the office hates cycling and I’ve just drawn him for secret santa

The word ‘hate’ is nearly always over-used/misused IMO. A globally-adopted USA-ism that by now could surely be defined as anything from ‘mild dislike’ to ‘snarling, spitting, careering repugnance’. Usually the former.
Also need to know whether definitely ‘cycling’ or ‘cyclists’*
In most all situations (excepting a requirement to physically disarm or neutralise) I find that kindness wins.
ie if he ‘hates’ a thoughtful gift from a ‘cyclist’, then pfffft, you still did a nice thing. If OTOH he likes it, then you still did a nice thing.
*For purpose of safety-awareness if sharing road-space on cycle-commute.Posted 2 months agofatoldgitMember

He jokes about knocking cyclists off on a regular basis
Splash fake blood over his car a smash his windscreen sprinkle some crushed helmet about. Take a photo. Make it a card with “cyclists are dicks I hate them with careering repugnance. Lol” put card in envelope for secret santa to dish out.Posted 2 months agobrownsauceMember
Even if said workmate was an avid cyclist + great guy i’d still go the turd in box route
anyways , i thought secret santa was an american thing for mainly women office workers ?
sounds a bit queer for british blokes.to be doing it
cold buffet spread , cheap warm booze and a punch up with the supervisior seems the proper way of celebrating xmas in the workplace.Posted 2 months ago
