Ashley, Josh, and I are in charge of ordering from Staples. In the past I viewed this as a chore. Then I discovered that Staples sells food.
Basically, we’ve turned the office into a kind of 9th floor bomb shelter.
This is the carb cubby, or, as I like to call it, the carby hole. I spent a good half-hour arranging it.
Now there are distinct Easy Mac, Goldfish/Chex Mix, and popcorn cubbies. Twizzlers wouldn’t fit in the photo frame.
What else can you get from Staples? Viennese Wafers for starters. Ramen. Tuna Salad with Crackers. Cadburry Eggs. Sliced Peaches. I think that’s all four food groups.
Yesterday at 5PM, Boss caught me sneaking an Easy Mac in my purse. We had to review Staples snack guidelines.
Boss: “Dude, that stuff is for the office. It has to stay here.”
Me: “OK. Wait. Even the Goldfish? Can I have a snack on the train?”
Boss: “Everything stays here.”
Me: “OK. But wait. What if I eat lunch outside by the water? Can I take Chex-Mix? It’s still on company time.”
Boss: (pause) “I don’t know.”
Ah, Staples. That was Easy (Mac)!
