Food banned from office
That’s a pretty pathetic reason.
If only there was something that could be done in between eating the KFC and using the computer, to prevent grease from the hands being transferred onto the computer?!?! hmmm … *think* *think* *cogs whirring* *think* *think* *think* … hmmm nope, not a clue – BAN ALL GREASY FOODS.
I remember when a company I used to work for banned us from using plastic beakers (instead of the disposable plastic cups) with the water cooler because they used up too much water. Pathetic. I think they hated the environment or oil or something.
oh and sorry, I don’t know the answer.Posted 4 years agopaulwfMember
A KFC opened yesterday, and today an email has been sent banning it from the office due to greasy fingers on keyboards.
I am sure recently I heard of a court case where a junk food company successfully overturned a ban on a type of food from a workplace?
Anybody remember what this case was?

first they came for the kfc
and I didn’t speak out because I don’t eat kfc
then they came for the maccy d’s
and I didn’t speak out because I don’t eat macdonalds
then they came for the muesli
and everyone cheered because they didn’t like the beardy sandle wearing cyclists

We’ve got two microwaves in the office one has a post-it on the front saying “Non-Fish Microwave” as one of the arsier members of staff has a severe (possibly affected) disdain for the smell of seafood…
Some people are just so bloody fussy and think the rest of the workplace should share their out of proportion OCD issues with food…
This simply makes me more determined to bring in mackerel, sardines and smoked salmon as often as I can. I’m also tempted to put a “Vegan only” label on the other Microwave, or better yet “Raw foodists only”…
Best advice would be, get out of the office at lunch time if you can, sounds like its a bit of a nightmare anyway…Posted 4 years agostu170Subscriber
1 eating at desks in the office is just plain wrong. Take half hour and chill out.Posted 4 years ago
2 ban on hot food is ridiculous. I would kicking off about that.
3 glad I have a nice crew room with all the food cooking stuff I need. One lad was grilling some chicken up earlier. Smelt amazingtomhowardSubscriber
While we have a kitchen, there isn’t any room for tables and chairs, so if we want to sit while we eat, we have to do it at our desks.
Of course we have loads of meeting rooms that never get used, but you know, people wouldn’t be able to work if they ate lunch in there….Posted 4 years agotthewSubscriber
what the hell are you doing in your sad little offices that means that you can’t possibly leave your grubby little desks for a break and some sustenance? it must be VERY important.

I quite agree with a complete no food at desks policy.
People eating can be annoying for other people in the office who are working.
You get crumbs etc all over your work desk, PC etc
People sit on social networking sites which rots their brains and they probably get all wound up about something pointless which means they can’t concentrate and spend the whole afternoon texting
People should be forced to take a break away from the desk and consume their meal away from work.
Oh and have you seen the office desk/PC keyboard germ images? 😯Posted 4 years ago
