free food

I just went to the break room to refill my tea, get a soda, and get another soda for my monitor stand.

When I got there, I saw a huge stack of boxed lunches on the counter.  There were about 20-30 of them.  As I went to grab some milk from the fridge I wondered if I should take one.  As I was taking that step, a crowd of about 10 people descended upon the break room and attacked the boxed lunches.  In the commotion I heard things like “news travel fast,” and “if it wasn’t pear salad…”

By the time I finished getting my hot water, the crowd was gone and so were all but three of the boxed lunches (all pear salad).  As I left the break room I still saw a few people hanging out in the hallway with their lunch boxes open exchanging items.

Me?  I’m still not hungry.
