    Reminds me of the opposite experience in a past life, we had an Excel form that lead to automatic processing of their request.

    Goddamn Boomers could not for the life of them figure that out. I'd constantly get printed/scanned PDF copies of the form or it would be copy/pasted in the body of an email. They would either refuse or be too stupid to figure out how to submit it back as the original Excel file.

    Back to what we wear at work when cold, I like to do a crew neck sweatshirt over my collared shirt like this

    I made a bunch of egg muffins on Sunday to eat for breakfast throughout the week. Figured I could keep them in the fridge instead of bringing them in everyday.

    Bag was gone when I went to heat up a couple this morning. Fucking people.

    We make these too and they are great. Put a slice of deli ham down in a muffin tray and fill each one with an egg or some egg white filler.

    Awesome breakfast because I just grab two or three and heat them for 30 seconds and then hit them with some everything bagel seasoning and have a premier protein with them. Quick and painless and filling.

    Not surprising. I put a mini fridge in my office. It's a bit disguised so it isn't really noticeable to most folks.

    Once a year we get an HR memo about not being allowed to have 'personal refrigerators in company space." Other than the passive aggressive memo from HR peeps who can't put a fridge in their cubicles, no one says a word. My boss did the same and when the President saw the fridge in his office my boss said it was for his insulin medication. He doesn't even have insulin.

    Interesting, recipe I started with used muffin liners and chopped up bacon. Using ham would make it faster and easier, think I'll try that next week.

    I keep a variety of condiments/sauces in one of the fridges in our breakroom. Bottle of Ranch, hot sauce, taco sauces, etc. my name is clearly marked on each of them. I'm more than happy to share with my co-workers because lol its just condiments. What drives me crazy is when someone takes the last of a bottle and doesn't give me a heads up so when I go to use it, it's all gone.

    100% dick move from them, but a deterrent would be to have it in a plastic grocery bag or something else that makes it more private.

    Yes. I swear to god they have an email list to go and get cake. Or they just hear people talking and do it.

    My wife loves to bake and has been playing around with the idea of starting her own business so she's been trying new recipes and has me leave them at work and I can't even get any feedback from the people on my team because I'll put this stuff out and go ask people to try it and let me know and come back an hour later and the shit is gone.

    Try losing a bunch of weight and having everyone in the office ask you if you're off the wagon and planning on getting fat again because you have some desserts at the holiday party

    My buddy at work came up to me yesterday and said he wanted some advice on how to eat healthier because he has gained 10lbs over the last two months. Todays lunch choice? Fried chicken. I called him out, but SHEEEEESH.

    Office settings in general, where most people have a largely sedentary lifestyle, have to be some of the most unhealthiest places in the US.

    The amount of soft drinks my office goes through is repulsive.

    I’ve told the story in here before but I had a female coworker who was overweight that loved to talk about her diets (never stuck with them.) I was eating a salad in the break room one day and she commented “oh wow I couldn’t even eat that now because tomatoes have sugar in them.” Fast forward a couple of hours and I walk in the break room for something and she is hovering over the trash can in the corner shoving cake in her mouth. She notices me and just drops what’s left in the trash can and power walks out without looking at me or saying anything.

    That’s hilarious. Reminds me of the summer in college I spent as a bank teller in the detached drive through. Me and a half dozen women, lots of them obsessed with the latest fad diet. The lady next to me was a really nice country lady, with zero self awareness and a love for sharing TMI. Every day she’d come in and complain about her weight (tell us the 300+ lbs the scale said) and talk about the next diet she was going to try. One morning she declared that she thought she found the diet that would work for her, the “veggie only” diet. At lunch time she left and came back, cocky as hell, holding a McDonalds bag and pulled out a supersized thing of fries, saying smugly “potatoes are vegetables, so I can eat this”. She pulled this move every day for my last few weeks on the job. I guess she did find a diet that worked for her.

    Someone just unintentionally replied all to an email with a 20 person mailing list copied in to talk shit on an email clearly meant for one person.

    Of course since I am an asshole, I replied and asked her to clarify her previous message since it didn't make sense just so she knows she done goofed.

    The whole “eating in a corporate setting” is infuriating. Especially as someone who has a fair amount of nutrition knowledge. Listening to these people hypocritically opine on a complex subject where they have no knowledge is infuriating.
