fuck it

Call for Music

I need your best musical selections filed under the "Fuck This Shit" genre. Preferably generic and non-breakup-related (since the shit I need to be fucked isn't a breakup). I can only listen to both "Fuck You"s so many times and my brain is currently blocked.

Girl Scout Cookie dilemma

Hi TQC!

This is probably the most #firstworldproblems thing to ever be posted here. I apologize in advance.

Anyway. I got fired from my job last week. I don't want to get into the reasons why in this post, but it wasn't for doing anything illegal/scandalous...I tried to leave in a very professional way. There wasn't really a lot of bad blood between myself and my co-workers.

A couple weeks ago, I ordered 2 boxes of Girl Scout cookies from one of my co-worker's daughters. They were supposed to be coming in this week, and I just remembered this now. I don't want to sound petty/whiny, but I would like to receive those cookies, since I paid for them already. I don't have this co-worker's cell phone number, but I do have her email address. I'm pretty sure she has my personal email (my work email has been disabled), but I'm not positive.

Should I email her to see if I can come to the office to get the cookies, or just forget about the whole thing? I don't want to look pathetic in front of my co-workers if I show up to the office just to get these cookies, but I'd like to have them. I also didn't get to say a real goodbye to this co-worker, since she was on vacation the day I got fired, and I feel kinda bad about that. I guess asking her to mail them to me or stop by my apartment is another option, but I don't want to create more work on her end. TQC, what would you do in this situation?

EDIT/UPDATE: I took the advice of most of you and emailed her asking if she would like to meet at the Starbucks near the office to give the cookies to me. She just responded saying that she'd rather mail them, so I gave her my address. However, she also said that I always did great work for her and was really helpful, and offered to be used as a reference for future jobs. This made me really happy :) Thanks for your help, TQC!
