Presumably, writes Chris in San Francisco, the note-writer “figured that if she didn’t put a note on all each offending bag, someone was going to feel left out.”

Please put your name on your Bags or they will be tossed! Many of the bags are left with rotting fruit and molded plastic containers. Thank you.

Adds Chris: “Admittedly, the Kashi cereal box in the back has been there for over two years.  I leave it just as an experiment in human behavior, but apparently somebody had had enough.”

      Laura,

      That’s the joy of the Edit feature.

      You can still get your coveted “First” (without SAYING it, of course) and then you have almost 5 minutes to think of something witty and clever to backedit into the comment.

      Comon now, get with it! I know you can do it!

      Mama, a penut is another word for a someone who cannot stop writing, or really, describes nearly anyone on this forum, including me. Doubling the ‘n’ is so inefficient.

      I am an Indian(not the native one). I am not sure what race I would fall under. I certainly am not Asian. Even though India is in Asia. Aryan is probably is the closest word that would describe my ancestry but that German SOB has dirtied that term up. Speaking of which reminds me of Swastika, Swastika is kinda equivalent to cross in Christianity in Hinduism but I can’t use that even though I have nothing to do with Nazism.
      Maan, Indian one is most confusing race, not native Indian (Red), not Asian, and can’t even think of calling themselves Aryan, even though most of the Indian ancestors describe themselves as Aryan and natives(Indian natives) as Dravidian.

      The Navajo tribes on northern New Mexico and Arizona had used the “Swirling Logs ” pattern as a symbol of good luck and prior to the 1930′s many rodeo performers and cowboys had their saddles, chaps and other gear decorated with this pattern. Then the Nazi ride to fame made this good luck symbol unwanted because of it’s resemblance to the swastika.

      So you are not South Indian, Malay or Sri Lankan? What does Ammachi call herself?

      yes Swastika symbol is from Vaidic period, It’s one of 80 or so symbols describing various things. Mandala are complex images made of those symbols describing creation and destruction cycle of life and universe. They say all the secrets of life are buried in those mandalas and yantras.
      When you enter first time in your home you would place red swastika at your door step to ensure stability and groudness in life. That is one(i know one only) of many example Hindus use.

    That’s one fucked up break room and in the middle of it all is a full bottle of kombucha, a holistic beverage comprised of a bacterial colony harvested from fermented green tea. Do you suppose it’s there to ward off the septic nature of the fungi and bacteria in the other containers? If so, do you think it’s working? I don’t.

    This simply reinforces my free range lunch policy. This office clearly suffers from a paucity of top lunch predators like claw71. You don’t see this sort of backlog in my office. There are no bags full of rotten fruit and moldy containers at my office because I’m here maintaining order and balance.

    12:45, people. Somebody needs to step up and start grazing at 12:45 everyday. That’s how it’s got to be. Yes, some people will wander in at 12:51 and wonder where their Lunchable went but nature doesn’t stop for stragglers. Not everybody likes it, but when you disrupt the cycle you ultimately end up with this: a disease-riddled break area that puts everybody at risk.

    See how all the notes are the same? Now that’s just a sign of a lazy P/A complainer.

    Yes, you print out the bag note to attach to the bags… but what about the many other offenses in this picture?

    Make a note for the saran wrap: “WTF, don’t we have drawers here people? Why are these cluttering up the counter? And why do we even need saran wrap at work anyways? Is someone in the women’s restroom planning a prank right now? Cause if so, I’m in…”

    A note for the cereals: “Does anyone even EAT these? WHY would anyone eat these?? Can they be tossed by the owner or what? I’m not the maid!”

    The errant jars and such all around the place: “Geez guys, why do we have an entire tub of salt here? And this jar of orange stuff looks like it should probably be refrigerated for best results!”

    And what’s with the pile of dishes under the counter? “Comon guys, can’t we at least stack these nicely so they aren’t such an eyesore? We have clients who come in here occasionally… WTF?”

    And just a thought of my own, what in the hell is a pitcher doing there? Is someone so cheap they have to make Kool-Aid at work too?

    It’s an example of passive aggressive note leaving over actual action.

    All it really is one note saying something along the lines of anything unmarked/unclaimed will be thrown out on Fridays and then start throwing shit away.

    It looks like this has been going on for a while and this probably isn’t the first PA note, but no one is taking a few minutes to actually throw all that shit away.

      *is just back from wikipedia and really wishes he hadn’t looked up kombucha*

      “fermented using a macroscopic solid mass of microorganisms called a ‘kombucha colony’.”
      “The culture itself looks somewhat like a large pancake, and though often called a mushroom, a Mother of vinegar or by the acronym SCOBY (for “Symbiotic Colony of Bacteria and Yeast”), it is clinically known as a zoogleal mat”
      “A review of the published literature on the safety of kombucha suggests no specific oral toxicity in rats, although it has also been shown to increase the size of both the liver and spleen in mice”
      “several case reports have suspected liver damage, metabolic acidosis and cutaneous anthrax infections”
      “Kombucha becomes very acidic (in the neighborhood of pH 3.0 when finished) and so can leach unwanted and potentially toxic material from the container in which it is fermenting”

      *thinks he’d be better off eating the raccoon*

      Don’t go to wikipedia and look at the picture. Trust me on this.

      Looks like “mother” of vinegar to me. Lots and lots of happy aerobic (note the paper towel instead of an airlock) acetobacters, eating alcohol to make acetic acid. Yummy! Also used to make sauerkraut, kimchee, etc.

      Oops, I see in your original post you already said it is “mother.” Yep, like I said…

    I am envious that he has the daily opportunity nay, privilege to to fuck with so many people.

    Two fresh slices of bread -scrape out a couple of nearly fermented samples- a ziplock and nice brown paper bag with a napkin that has the number for poison control- leave it in the refrigerator.

    There was a high schooler who placed spoiled meat in various unused lockers- locked them and left Friday for a long weekend. School was cancelled. They then devised a method they called a meat bomb so that when the locker was opened the contents of a large container of rotten shit would spill all over. Somebody placed the entire head and neck of a deer in locker. Ahh the fun they must have had.
