Popcorn Lunch

September 13, 2012 // Posted in Eats and Drinks, Friends, Life, Shopping, Work (Tags: , , ) |  Comments Off on Popcorn Lunch

Things were so crazy busy around here that all I had for lunch was a bag of microwave popcorn. I don’t even like popcorn all that much, but I was starving and that was the only thing I could see in the vending machine that would be even halfway healthy. I like chocolate as much as the next girl, but when you are hungry, chocolate does not fill you up.

Never knew there were so many different brands and flavors of popcorn until I went to Kroger this morning to pick up some popcorn and just keep it in my desk. I also picked up 5 frozen dinners to keep in the break room at work. They were on sale for $2 a piece and you can’t beat that price plus the convenience of them being just 6 minutes in the microwave away from being a fast lunch.

The only problem with putting a lot of food in the freezer at work is that people steal your food when they are stuck there late at night working on a deadline and don’t want to go out to buy their own fucking dinner. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone to the freezer to grab one of my frozen lunches and I find a sticky note in there saying I.O.U. and my lunch is gone. When that happens I track down the fucker who stole my lunch and make him take me out to Longhorn Steakhouse for a lunch. That always costs about $20 instead of the $2 frozen lunch that they stole from me. But some of those guys don’t care at all – they even write it off on their expense reports and we both get to eat for free.

Flat Rate Shipping

When is the last time you had to ship anything at the post office? I can tell you it has been a very long time since I had to find a box, put stuff in it and then haul it to the post office.

Nowadays they are making it easier for you to deal with the box end of it. They have free boxes in several sizes that you can use to ship your stuff. Anything that you can cram into the box goes for a flat rate. How cool is that?

Reader’s Digest, Always Good For a Laugh

I have been receiving the monthly publication of Reader’s Digest since I moved out on my own. We always had a stack of them in the bathrooms back home and the whole family enjoyed reading them while spending time in there. The jokes are always funny and I’d like to share a few of my favorites here today.

“I have no respect for gangs today. They just drive by and start shooting people. At least in the old days, lie in West Side Story, the gangs used to dance with each other first.”

“Last Valentine’s Day, I arrived at the doctor’s office where I work as a receptionist to find a mystery man pacing up and down holding a package. As I got out of the car, he declared warmly, “I have something for you.” I excitedly ripped open the bundle. It was a urine sample!”
