You all might recall the blog post last month regarding what I deem to be inappropriate use of certain types of bags in the refrigerator. Almost a month has passed and I found myself on another miniature tirade of sorts. I came back from a meeting on another floor well below my own and walked into the kitchen for a nice hot cup of cocoa. Upon setting foot at the threshold, my nose was assaulted by a most horrific smell. I honestly think I threw up a little in my mouth it was so bad!! I looked around so as to confront my attacked like I wasn’t even alone in the kitchen. “Byler” walks in and I ask her if I am the only one that smells that smell, it was like week old cabbage and feet and it permeated the ENTIRE kitchen area!! She said, that she smelled it, it was totally gross and it was probably something in the fridge.
The “Grind My Gears”segment for this part of this afternoon is me being the Refrigerator Police. I know and understand that the work fridge is not my personal property, I don’t own it, I don’t rent it, I don’t lease it. However, seeing as I spend more time at work than at home, I do at least think I should be responsible for cleaning up after myself and taking stock of my belongings in the fridge if not every day, at the end of each work week. That being said, I cannot stand it when people leave food, food stuffs, perishables, etc. in the fridge for an indeterminate amount of time! These things end up being science experiments in the back of the fridge, stinking up the joint and casting doubt on everything around it. Please, please people, if you are going to bring your lunch, snacks, whatever, put them in see-through Tupperware or plastic containers. Seeing things wrapped in foil paper that I KNOW have been in the fridge for over 2 weeks makes the entire thing a biohazard containment unit.
That is all, feel free to talk amongst yourselves.
Blessings and Happiness
What I Desired To Say

I thought all workplaces had a “get it out by Friday or we’re throwing it out” policy now. At least now I know where I can do my science experiments so they don’t stink up my own place.
