Hi folks,

bottom line, if you cannot cook, don't bring a dish that you prepared at home. Sorry, I just don't eat everything, especially the food of people that I work with.

Some people will eat anything but not me. I especially don't eat nor take part in the office "pot luck day".

For the past 2 weeks a couple of the ladies in the office have been bringing in baked goods. To be honest these baked goods did not even look good. Really, how can you mess up brownies and cupcakes. Apparently you can.

I stayed away from both "opportunities" to sample the goods. NO way.

The cupcakes had a marshmallow. The "mello's" were melting and it made the "cakes" look so nasty. The only person that was "smashing" them was the lady that brought them in.......LOL. We all stayed away.


The "brownie lady"....now I have no idea how you can mess up brownies, but you can. These brownies were crumbly and gluey. I said "WTF!!". The icing was some homemade "goop". I guess that was the glue that held the crumbs together. Nevertheless, those brownies sat there.


Folks, if you bring something to the office, go BUY something, bring in an unopened package. Folks think because their family eats their "mess" the folks at the office will also.

I don't want to get started about the hamburger macaroni casserole.




LOL........Ron

I enjoy home cooked stuff that people bring into the office. If you want to be the party pooper Ron, you can go sit in the lunch room in the corner by yourself eating a Lunchable, or those nasty turkey sandwiches out of the vending machine!

At least they're nice enough to share. They weren't forcing you to eat anything, were they? Why not just tell them you're on a diet and can't eat certain things.

Maybe they were "special brownies". If they were, and you ate them, it might explain this bizarre thread.

Personally, I never eat from community bowls left in the common areas, filled with chips, or unwrapped stuff. You'd be surprised how many don't use soap after they use the toilet.

We have a full blown cafeteria with food prepared for your order plus we have Starbucks coffee. We also lately got those little machines that make gourmet coffee from those little one serving coffee containers.

I'm not surprised at people not washing their hands. We have those gourmet machines as well. WEe all so have the made to order option as well.......



As it relates to the bizarre thread, I thought I would be funny. I was laughing as I was writing it. It's funny to me.

I really hope this is a joke.

If it doesn't look appetizing to you, don't eat it. No one's holding a gun to your head.
