    Doughnuts in office

    Dunkin Donuts munchkins are the office food today. How many trips to the box are too many?

    Agreed, white flour and sugar are a bad base for a weekend of drinking.

    I suggest a trip to Frisches.

    Dunkin Donuts? The correct number of trips is zero.

    Bonnie Lynn? As many as it takes.

    I agree. It should only take one trip to get the whole box.

    Sometimes you just have to go that extra mile.

    There are only two munchkins left in the box. I don't think I can risk the aftertaste. Now in the "its no big surprise" the chocolate brought back from Germany and left out for everyone by one of my co-workers has been entirely consumed.

    At the place where my wife works, they had a table where people would put out pizza or doughnuts or birthday cakes for everyone on the team to share. Then they started noticing people from other parts of the building coming over and eating all the food. The final straw was when they had a birthday cake set up and someone came and cut out the piece with the birthday girl's name before she had even seen the cake. After that they started intentionally leaving prank food out (garlic-flavored gum or cakes with chili peppers baked in) until the culprits stopped coming around.

    My workplace was pretty open about sharing food, to the point where emails were sent inviting everyone to seek out the food. Today they got me a cake for my last day.

    I think the basic rule for work food is that if it's placed in a high-traffic area where anyone can have some, it's fair game (unless its something like an uncut birthday cake). If you have to venture into an area of the office where people normally don't go to get to the food, maybe it's not meant for general consumption. In that case, wait to be invited.

    That reminds me of something we pulled in high school, if I may digress slightly. We had a classmate who liked to grab food off other people's trays without asking. You'd be sitting there having your lunch and he would just reach over and snatch anything that looked interesting. One day we fixed him good. One of the other guys who sat at our table got some chocolate ex-lax bars and carefully rubbed them smooth so the "ex-lax" was no longer visible. They just looked like plain chocolate bars. Wouldn't you know it, that guy reached over and grabbed one and ate it. Then they guy who brought them in said that he didn't want them and he could have all of them if he wanted. I think our food thief ate three of them and before the lunch period was over he was running out of the cafeteria. He kept excusing himself from his afternoon classes as well. I can't recall him snatching food from anyone again after that.
