Oh man, that is too funny. Such a laugh, but so much truth to it. How does anyone even cater a meal these days.

Painfully true. When I have to get food for school functions, I just order whatever then run like Hell when it's delivered. Does this make you long for the simpler days of drunken thugs in Russia or Arab youths pelting you with rocks?

Eat more pussy. Free range, gluten-free, lactose-free, sugar-free, comes in infinite flavors. Not sure about "fair trade" though. Probably don't want to eat it if you paid straight cash, but probably safe to eat if you bartered for it with food, booze, drugs, shiny things, clothes etc.

Very true and made me laugh. I often think the opposite when i'm in my crappy ESL centre's staffroom full of hot Asian admin staff. 'How can these women be so hot and fit when they eat deep friend stuff on a stick and drink sugary drinks all day?'

To be fair this happens in all sorts of work places.

During a quiet Easter where schools are on holiday I did 3 weeks as a temp in my old career (got to keep my toe in).

It was pretty much how I remembered it the last time I went back for a bit of temping was in 2010 for 6 months between teaching jobs.

The boss would take everybody out for a Wetherspoons bargain basement beer and a burger it's a typical shitty chain pub type place serving shitty food and shitty beer. The men wouldn't eat anything and would spend the £6 the boss put aside for us on beer for 2 or so pints or 3 pints of piss.

The women would take forever to order oh I can't eat that it's got too much fat in it. Even the younger ones around 20 or so. The funny ones were the grotesquely obese men and women. They would order the burger combo, stick extra fries, potato wedges and a shit ton of mayonnaise. They would also eat the bread with a ton of butter which came with the combo... nobody eats the bread ever as it's just recycled day in day out. To make up for it they would ask for a diet coke as if that would make up for the 5000 calories they just put down their throats.
