Apparently, I work with a bunch of vultures...
Not here in the Data group, where I park my carcass day in and day out, but over in the much larger Voice group.
Today there was a potluck. I brought in two plates of cookies from a local megamart, so yes, I paid my admission into it. As did quite a few others.
My guess is that the company threw in the buckets from KFC.
Well, thanks to a brief yet furious outage, we Data folks couldn't get up there quick enough (well, maybe less than a handful did). By the time I had a chance to go snag some food, all that was left of the lunch-type stuff were a few nachos and a spoonful of ziti.
All the KFC was gone, picked over, nothing... not a sausage (literally).
And here I am, without a lunch.
Oh, I have food here, but it's either cans of Pringles or a couple cups of nukable mac-n-cheese. Nothing of any real substance. And I refuse to go out and spend more money on getting me something to eat when I should have been able to get something at the potluck as I spend like $15 on the cookies, yet those who didn't bring anything got their faces filled.
Fucking annoyed by this, and rightly so.
Annoyed, hungry, and not bothering to eat now just on fucking principle.
Appreciation my blanched arse.
