Out Site... Out of Mine: The WORST!KIND Quick Guide in Lunch Room Etiquette at the Job
Posted by Jaesen Keith on
Ah, the lunchroom. A place where you can enjoy a much-needed break from the never-ending workday and enjoy your carefully prepared meal or favorite snacks. But, alas, as with any shared space, there's always that one person who ruins it for everyone. You know who I'm talking about - the lunch thief. That's right, that jerk who eats other people's lunches.
Listen up, lunch thieves, we all know what you're doing, and we don't appreciate it. So, let's set some ground rules. First of all, hands off other people's lunches. It's simple, really. If it's not yours, don't touch it. And if you're feeling peckish, bring your own damn food.
Now, let's move on to the next problem - the dirty microwave. We get it, you're in a hurry, and you don't have time to cover your food properly. But let me tell you something, leaving a splattered mess in the microwave for the next person to clean up is not cool. So, do everyone a favor and cover your food with a lid or paper towel, and if you do make a mess, take a few seconds to wipe it down.
And speaking of messes, let's not forget about the sink full of dishes. I mean, seriously, what are we, in college? It's not that hard, people. Just clean up after yourself. And if you see someone else's dirty dishes, do them a solid and wash them. Who knows, maybe they'll return the favor one day.
Moving on to the empty condiments and lack of silverware. It's like a game of hide and seek. You open the fridge, and there's no ketchup, no mustard, no mayo. It's like condiment roulette. And don't even get me started on the lack of silverware. Are we barbarians? Did we forget how to use utensils? So, let's make a deal, people. If you see something running low, replace it, and if there's a shortage of silverware, bring your own or let management know.
In summary, lunchroom etiquette is not rocket science, folks. Just be considerate of your fellow coworkers and clean up after yourself. And for the love of all that is good, keep your hands off other people's food. Let's make the lunchroom a place we all enjoy, not a place we dread.
