TT W16D2: Open Memo To My Co-Workers

Posted 4/23/07 on the company forum:

The shared refrigerator in the break room has been looking kind of rough lately. It’s time for the semi-annual fridge purge since the ratio of fresh food to self-contained penicillin farming experiments is about 1 to 9, and only the first 5 inches at the front of the fridge are even usable for storage.

The Fridge….Before

If you have used the refrigerator at all in the past SIX MONTHS, please check it today (Monday) for any containers, take out boxes, condiments, or other mysterious items that belong to you and throw out items that are:

1) expired
2) moldy
3) mummified
4) shriveled beyond recognition
5) leaking strange green fluids
6) growing their own multicolored Magic Rock ™ formations
7) left in unmarked, undated, unclaimed take out packaging

Any items fitting the above descriptions that are left in the fridge by noon Tuesday shall be tossed out to make the fridge usable again for future potluck day food storage.

Thanks for your cooperation.

  1. Who knew the college years fridge would actually carry over to the work place? :wig: Holy moley – or is it holey moldy?

  2. Ewwww! Do you actually put food in there? Do you have to fumigate it first?

  3. Irene – Bear in mind that I work with guys, most of them single and between the ages of 20-30.

    There was indeed a lot of mold going on in there. The oldest item was a jar of mayo that expired in mid-2005. The scariest item was the dessicated remains of what MIGHT have once been a tomato, but had become a wrinkled red hockey puck glued to the top right shelf by its own overripe juices and a border of fuzzy green penicillin mold.


    Stacy – I keep my food in the lower right produce compartment, sequestered away from the riff raff foods of my co-workers. :cyclops:
