At the beginning of each month a few food items appear on my desk at work. Soup & bread mixes, bottles of syrup, cookies, etc. I thanked my boss and he said, "no problem, just getting rid of what's tempting me!"
I began noticing a trend after the third month. I happened to glance at the expiration date and noticed it was the previous week. I went home & checked everything he had given me and sure enough, each item was given to me just passed its expiration date.
I'm both amused at the weirdness and annoyed. I would personally eat recently expired items from my home but I would never gift them!
Anyway, just thought I'd share. Has this or anything similar happened to anyone else?
