Getting food for others at work

James Cristinian | Dec 23, 2008 01:40 PM

I work in a large retail store, and whenever I go to lunch someone always asks where you're going and bring them something. Ok, I pretty much bring my lunch now, but a thread from the Texas baord got me to rant. Anyway, when I went out I liked to eat in my car and listen to the radio, a small oasis from the insanity. If i brought others food I felt compelled to rush as I didn't want to bring cold food. Then there were people who wanted to give you a credit card for a five dollar meal. Even worse was when you got back with food you had bought for someone else and it's always, "Why didn't you tell me you were going out." My standard response was,"When did you EVER tell me you were going out and offer to bring me something, or I have to ask everyone?" It finally got to where I'd just lie and say I was going home,(as I lived nearby,) for leftover pizza or a sandwich. As I said I now bring my own, it's healthier and cheaper.
