Beth says I have "an unhealthy relationship with food." This is because if you set something in front of me, I will eat it. Regardless of whether I'm hungry, I will eat it. This is even more true if it's something I like.
Hypothetically, if someone were to set a five-gallon bucket of M&M's in front of me I would eat M&M's until:
a. They were gone,
b. I threw up,
c. Someone took them away, or
d. I died from chocolate poisoning (not sure if there is such a thing, but if there is I would likely be stricken).
And I admit, I go a little overboard at times. But today, I was reminded that some people just plain need help.
This morning I got an e-mail reminding employees not to take any food in the refridgerator that is not their own. We get this e-mail every few months and it blows my mind.
What kind of loser steals lunches from the fridge? Obviously they have a job, so they should be able to afford to make or buy their own sandwiches (there's a Subway less than a mile from our office)! I mean, what goes through their head?
1. "I'm really hungry."
2. "I ate my lunch during my morning break."
3. "Subway is two whole minutes away. And I'd have to wait in line!"
4. "I'll just check to see what everyone else packed today."
5. "Hey, a ham sandwich! I like ham sandwiches!"
6. "I'll take this ham sandwich, they'll never miss it!"
I can potentially see a short-sighted teenager doing this, but once you enter the adult workforce, it's time to control your kleptomaniacal tendancies. If you really need a snack that bad, beg 90 cents off a coworker and buy a Snickers! LOSER!
