Office Talk: What NOT to Do in the Kitchen

Strange things have been known to happen to unattended food in office kitchens: microwaved burritos end up with corners bitten off, smoothies are stealthily sipped and replaced, and half-eaten meatball sandwiches disappear in the fluorescent light of day. But what about food that you clearly have your eye on?

My sister Sophie was at work once, washing an apple in the kitchen sink, when a co-worker she didn’t know came up beside her. In the same sink, in the same stream of water, the co-worker started rinsing her own fruit right above Sophie’s hands! Sophie was too stunned to say anything because, really, who does that?!

Have you had any funny/crazy office kitchen experiences lately? They always make me laugh.
