    Our little kitchen area is small (one sink, one coffee maker, one microwave, one refrigerator) so maybe that’s why people in there annoy me so much.

    First, there’s the people who drink the last bit of coffee and don’t start a new pot. Just throw a pack in the little compartment and press the button. Not that hard. Takes all of 5 seconds, but no one here seems to have the time.

    Then, there are the people who insist on making a gourmet breakfast every morning. This one fatty brings her own hot plate and pan every morning and actually scrambles her own eggs and bacon. She brings her own toaster too. She takes up the whole counter for about 30 minutes and is constantly in the way of the normal people who just want to get a damn cup of coffee.

    Then there are the people who leave their crap in the refrigerator for weeks at a time. This fridge has more crap in it than my home fridge. Take your food out of there and make room for the normal people who just want to put their lunch for the same day in. Take your nasty leftovers home.

    Then there are the people who take 30 minutes to microwave their lunches. Heat it up, stir it, heat it some more, stir it, heat it some more, add some spices, heat it up some more, etc. etc, etc. All I need is 30 seconds. Step aside, fatty.

    Then – and this is probably my least favorite – there’s the lady that has to ask everyone very specific details about what they are making for lunch. “Oh, what do you have there??” “Are those wheat tortillas?” “Mmmm, I’ll bet those are good, are they better than flour?” “What kind of sauce is that?” Lady….ZIP IT. Leave me along and let me heat up my lunch in peace.

    Okay, I feel much better now. :)

    And, before you ask.....Yes, I AM having a case of The Monday’s….

    Our office kitchen has a dishwasher and people can load their dirty dishes in and someone runs it every day (I'm guessing the cleaning people do). But what bothers me is when people just leave their dirty dishes in the sink. This isn't your house...your mom is coming around to wash your dishes. I don't want to have to reach over a pile of dirty bowls with caked-on, microwaved-on spaghetti sauce just to rinse out my dish before I put it in the dishwasher.

    This annoys me to no end. At my previous job (a restaurant equipment dealer), this would happen on a daily basis. I was always the one getting stuck having to make the pot. Finally, one day I left a note. It said...

    "If you finish the coffee and it is still in the am hours, please make a new pot. If you don't know how to use the coffee maker...you probably shouldn't work at a restaurant equipment dealer."

    The note was removed by the Controller, but he waited until the next day so everyone could see it once.

    these here people that don't start a new pot should be forced to drive GREEN (yuck!) Ford Escorts... :mad:
    Taking notes here... and where do you work?
    DO NOT insult the hottie fatties... :mad: I shall defend the fatties' honor. You and I shall fight, sir. :eek:
    Asking if those are ANY kind of Tortillas is a misdemeanor in Texas punishable by law, methinks. She should be in jail... not knowing if they're wheat or not... the nerve!
    Isn't it a THURSDAY? :(

    I feel your pain - except for the bacon and eggs thing -thats nuts and would drive me bonkers.

    My personal pet peeve? Some dumbass makes coffee here without first emptying the pot - causing it to overflow. How fscking stupid do you have to be to not see that coming?

    Not so long ago, they increased the price of the bottled 20 oz sodas in the vending machine in our kitchen area from $1.00 to $1.25. Some idiot felt it was prudent to tape a note on the machine that complained about the price increase in some pretty harsh language and threatened to never buy a soda from the vending machine ever again. I was just simply amazed because...quite frankly...I and others don't give a crap and the whole "leave a note" thing on a vending machine (unless it is broken) is uber gay. We also tend to have problems with people stealing other people's food out of the refrigerator...something that I will never understand. We're all employed. We don't need to steal other people's food. The last kitchen thing I would like to gripe about is people who buy popcorn bags from the vending machine and attempt to pop it in the microwave. Sure enough...these same people can never do it right. They stick it in there, set the timer, turn it on, and leave. Then, the popcorn actually burns to a crisp (some have even caught on fire) and the whole floor is smoked out. It's happened more times than I care to remember. Now, they basically said you have to go down to the main pavillion area where the food is served to cook your popcorn...which is basically popping it under supervision. lol

    Oh LORD, how could I forget this one?? This happens every day here. Seriously, you can train a chimp to make microwave popcorn without burning it to a crisp. Why can't the people on my floor figure it out?

    That's awesome. Somethings are so messed up you should just enjoy them.

    (and i guess I'll go clear some of my old lunches from the fridge later. But the big question -- a full toss to the bin....or do I dare clean out the containers to take them home....)

    We get these guys from another group go in and take over the kitchen table to have ad hoc conference meetings. Then they shoot nasty looks at you if you try to go get a cup of coffee for disturbing their meeting.

    Book a conference room!

    Haha I have to say hot plate and pan takes the cake. That sounds so ridiculous.

    Does she bring it in everyday and then take it home, or just leaves it there?

    What is the rationale for doing this? Can't wake up 20 minute earlier to do it at home?

    I just heated some leftovers and took them out after a minute and a half and stirred them oh so slow ly and then put them back in the microwave, and somewhat was waiting.
