Cookout Leftovers at Work?

July 6, 2017

Ok.. we love it when co-workers bring in the leftover Halloween candy the day after trick or treating.  We all spend the next few weeks sneaking around the candy-clump doing the “I’m just gonna have one of these right here” onesy-twosies grabs. Or when they bring in leftover cakes from a kid’s birthday.

But, 4th of July leftovers might be another story.

For example, thanks to the person that brought in a half eaten bowl of nacho dip and… and yes, those are broken,soggy tortilla chip specs in there.   News flash- That’s probably why there’s an entire bowl left over!

And who brought in the sugar rectangle cookies that have the cheap little green jimmies on them in lines like a flag?  Be careful, look for the ones who possibly had some condiments dripped on them as people were stretching over the table to get one more dab of cheese or ranch dressing.

Leftover cupcakes.. ok.. I’ll take some of those.  I’m a dunker so a chocolate cupcake dunked into a cold glass of milk works.

Baked bean casserole leftovers?  Ya know, the dish that has been microwaved 3 or 4 times during the festivities as more people rolled into the party.  Personally, I like the crusty 4-times-mic’d brown edges of the potatoes but…public service note..figure out who brought those things….they will probably be taking multiple “smoker” breaks today to “clear the air!”

And what about the wilted, leftover cheese and cold-cut slices that are still on the plastic tray?  Maybe it will be okay as long as there isn’t a Tupperware bucket of leftover mayo and/or mustard.  Suggestion: Grab the condiments outta the company fridge….although they are crusty around the top of the jars, they haven’t sat out all day at a picnic.

So to those of you that have Iron City soaked spinach balls and sundry other leftovers for the office, let’s just save those for your next cookout at home with your hated neighbors/relations!

But pass the stale cupcakes to me, Ya Jagoffs!!!

I write about Jagoffs, i.e. stupid politicians, awful sports officials, dumb criminals, bad drivers, ignorant people and on and on. BTW, Jagoff is NOT a swear word. It can be just as confusing as their, there and they're. Sometimes it's actually used as a term of endearment. My Pittsburgh blog is YaJagoff.com. Twitter is @YaJagoff.

    One of the major perks that job seekers should always look for when interviewing is the possibility of free food.

    Cookout leftovers do not count. They just don’t.
