What Would You Choose For Your Office-Birthday Treat?

Jim and Dwight took their party-planning responsibilities seriously in last night's episode of The Office, blowing up balloons, decorating a sheet cake, and even thinking of a theme for Kelley's birthday.

The demanding birthday girl got the cake no matter what, but the planning duo gave Kelley the option of taking a one-hour nap or watching one hour of TV for her birthday treat. Kelley went for the nap, which is exactly what I would choose without hesitation. What about you?

I would go for the nap. I use to nap all the time on my lunch break. I would take going home a hour early if that was an option but summer hours are just around the corner so no worries.

We have so many great conference rooms at my job that are always super cold :) It would be the greatest nap

She is Kelly without the E. I would totally take the nap.

Kelly's choice was a tough one--LOL. I would have gone with the TV though. Naps make me feel groggy and out of it for a long time afterwards.

There were productivity studies about two years ago that determined allowing nap time at work improved employee productivity and satisfaction.

I'd take the nap. By the way, didn't Jim and Dwight spell her name wrong on the cake? I thought she said she's Kelly-without-the-e!

well i don't think that watching TV would really entice me and napping during the day doesn't do it either. i'd have to ponder this one a bit.

I would definitely go for the nap if I was on the day-shift, but if I were on the night shift, I'd pick the TV because all the good shows are on at night and I can never watch them when I'm at work.

A coworker and I used to work a second job delivering newspapers at night in addition to our regular 8-to-5 jobs. She could take quick little naps during her breaks, but I'm too finnicky a sleeper. I guess I would have to go with 1 hour of TV.

neither - I liked the gift my boss and department gave me when i was an exec assistant. they gave me a $250 gift certificate to art supply store. they knew i was in art school full time while working - so each employee ponyed up $10 the CEO gave $100 and my boss (the VP) did $50 and she took me to lunch at Hawthorne Place. We were gone for lunch for over 2 hours. Best gift I've ever gotten from an employer/friends.

Definitely going home early, but they didn't offer it :)

nap would be great as long as there wasn't a Dwight telling me I had to make up the time!

I can't nap, so I would choose the 1 hr of TV, but going home an hour early would be even better if that was an option.

There's nothing like a nice 20-30 minute sleep at lunch. I wouldn't mind being allowed to leave an hour early or coming in an hour late. Davine.
