How To Eat For Free

We had one of our quarterly meetings yesterday. I ordered boxed lunches for this meeting, so I got fed along with everyone else. And, as always, there were five or six lunches left over. So, after the meeting, I snagged one of the leftovers, wrote my name on it and stuck it in the fridge for today.

This particular boxed lunch had a veggie sandwich that is the size of a baby's head, and a pasta salad, which is normally too much to eat in one sitting. So, right there is four lunches. I'm good for the rest of the week.

Then, this morning, there was a training session for the techs before I arrived to work and the trainer brought breakfast. Normally when these guests bring "breakfast" they bring a big bag of bagels with some schmear. Big whoop.

But THIS trainer brought a crapload of Costco muffins (also roughly the size of a baby's head), 40 or 50 Yoplait yogurts and a ton of juice boxes. And I had ordered coffee. So, imagine my surprise when I went into the kitchen before my 8am meeting and saw this leftover breakfast laid out before me. I grabbed a couple of yogurts, wrote my name on them and put them in the fridge, and I grabbed a pumpkin/chocolate muffin (which was way too big to actually finish) to start my day and filled up my coffee cup.

All in all, not a bad Wednesday.

Umm, you made four lunches out of one? That's just silly. You need to learn how to eat girl. I maybe could have gotten 1.5 lunches out of a baby's head and some pasta salad. You must be wasting away out there in Seattle!
