My baking doubts were set to rest. The messed up Nutella PB cookies went over well with those who enjoy those flavors. By far the most popular of the cookies: chocolate mint.
The funny thing about my cookie offerings is that there are some days when people are startlingly indifferent/complacent about it. They don't seem to care that there are cookies. This time, when I expected a lukewarm reception, people seemed genuinely excited. Cookies in the canteen disappeared long before lunch (that's a first) and people I never see wandered down into my pretend office (never happens), citing "rumors" of particularly amazing cookies. ?! Hmm.
Beyond that, I was hit by a strange, strong dizzy spell and sense of ill-being, so I decided it best to drive home while still daylight and before afternoon traffic hit. I tend to be the sort of person who gets a lot of things done but if they involve visiting public offices or car garages, I will put them off as long as I can. In this case, my check engine light went on in my car this morning, and I decided there is no time like now to see if I can take care of it. I left the office in this semi-dizzy state and stopped at the Subaru dealership in Follo. I want to give a big shout out to the service center staff there. They were efficient, helpful, friendly and quick. They checked out my car in under ten minutes and told me what I need to do and reassured me. It was about a million times more positive than all my Subaru dealership experiences in Sweden so far (one of the very few times I can say that I was more impressed by something in Norway than in Sweden — bad service and total negligence on the Swedish side). I do not have massive, high expectations in terms of customer service after having lived in these places for so long — but when I do get some decent service, I am greatly appreciative. Thanks for making my afternoon so much easier, Birger N. Haug car dealership.
