Because It's Funny

Anyone who works in an office setting and shares a refrigerator with their co-workers knows to write their name or initials on their food.  Just in case.  I did this while living in the sorority house because no one thought twice to take an egg from a carton that wasn’t marked and next thing you knew, you only have two eggs left.  Not cool.  That also happened with tampons, but let’s stay on course.  Name or initials on your food – same goes for the work place.  Unless it’s marked “community”.  Those are the rules.

But some don’t like to play by the rules.  These people, the rule breakers, want to live on the edge and be wild and crazy.  So they never bring in their own lunch or condiments.  They “borrow” food even though it can’t really ever be returned.  Because it’s digested.  And that gross.  You can keep it.  But I think Amy’s onto something because when you open the fridge at work, you see this:


It makes me laugh.  But I don’t use Amy’s hot sauce.  For obvious reasons.  The warning is clearly marked.

Rebecca - HAHA this Amy is hilarious – the real question is, did it work? It scared you away, but somehow I don’t think you were the offender in the first place.

J. Smith - Ahh the house. Our can opener to this day has “JMG” emblazoned on the handle in sharpie pen. I love that can opener. I loved the 3 before it that were eaten by the house. At one point there was a juice drinker so bold as to drink my beverages even when they were labeled. LD and I (food sharers) had to strat marking the last known juice level with a permanent marker and our initials. Drink some juice? Mark the level and sign. *sigh* Some things I do NOT miss about the house.
