I forgot my lunch today.
I won’t do that again.
Now I understand why the “cafeteria dwellers” around here look so grey and bloated…
The building’s cafeteria is in the subbasement. Makes sense. This isn’t a place you want to showcase.
The kitchen staff are a grim crew.
I feel bad for them. No natural light. Having to spend all day smelling and looking at the “food” they make.
The guy who flips the burgers has an extra finger on one of his hands. Not his “spatula” hand. But his “picking up the bun” hand… I was surprised that there was a line up.
My other “Main Course” choices were the “Bo Bo Balls” (chicken?) or the “Shish-Ka-Smelt” (fish?).
Both dishes came covered in an orange sauce.
I decided to check out the salad bar.
No lie, on my way to it, I saw one of the kitchen staff spraying for roaches by the coffee urns.
Spraying for roaches during the lunch rush…
Unlike my co-workers, the guy spraying for roaches gets results.
The roaches started coming out to die in the salad bar. They were big suckers too. Convulsing on the ice lettuce and cucumber slices.
That’s when I left.
I was relieved to get back to the office.
…I can’t believe I just said that.
