It came from the kitchen

It came from the kitchen
Originally uploaded by macslost.
I'm not a fan of community food storage. I make an exception for dried goods and beer/Diet Coke, but beyond that, no food should be stored at work. For the sole reason that people who store food never retrieve it. Ever. Our kitchen smelled so bad today that one of my coworkers was compelled to write the following to the office. How he stood that smell long enough to take inventory I do NOT know...

To all,

Not to be a nazi about this, but there’s been a string of folks going into the kitchen and complaining about the fumes.

But no-one is taking responsibility for their food.

I’ve placed all the expired/moldy items on the counter. Come claim them if they are yours. Please.

Gaby & I like our offices, but we can’t/won’t police the kitchen. Unless it smells so bad that we have no choice but to toss everything, w/o consulting you.

Here’s a list of the expired/moldy food in there. Is it yours?
