I found this post about free food at work and how people go crazy over it. The post then goes on to say that terrorist could overtake the world by lacing free pizzas with poison.
I don't know about the terrorist part, but people do definitely go a bit silly over free food at work. The fact that we have a cookie mailing list at work proves that. And the fact that I'm on that list proves that I love food, not necessarily free food, but free is good.
The only free stuff we got going at work is coffee and cream biscuits whenever a new packet is opened. Those cream biscuits disappear faster than a beer at an alcoholic's anonymous meeting. So to get to them first is key. You then get first choice of the ones you like. Recently though, the biscuits have switched back to the normal assortment mix. And we all know the only good biscuits in that pack is the Arnotts Scotch Fingers. People have been known to hide those right at the bottom of the jar so they can retrieve them later. And by people, I really don't mean me so stop your smiling. :-)
We also get the occasional donuts left over from meetings. If we're really lucky, there's free cake left over from someone's birthday. And if we've hit the jackpot, there's free mixtures of cakes and slices and donuts left over from trays of desserts that we serve to clients.
On Fridays, there's also free snacks. For a while, the secretary deemed that we should eat healthy and we had veggie sticks and dips. The previous secretary didn't care and we got great stuff like party pies, sausage rolls, chicken wings, chicken nuggets and wedges. Now, the newest secretary has been open to suggestions. So we have a mixture of pies, chips, dim sims and veggies. Also, every fortnight, it's pizza time. And let me tell you, pizza time is popular. Don't get between engineers and pizzas. The 20+ pizzas disappear so quickly. That's when the Friday drinks is the most crowded. But 30 mminutes later when the pizza is gone, people disperse rather quickly too as there is no food left. At least with the usual snacks, there's stuff remaining and people linger around slowly picking at things until there is nothing good left. Oh, and there's beer every Friday. But the best beers (full strength) always get finished very early too. Again, people have been known to stash a few in the freezer for their consumption later. And by people, I don't mean me. Seriously, it's not me. But I should. Hehehehe.
So what free food do you have at your work place?
