Thread: The best thing about my previous job was the banning of eating at desks.

  1. #1

    The best thing about my previous job was the banning of eating at desks.

    Having to endure the stench of other peoples' stinky lunches detracts from the quality of my day.

    I had toast and Marmite. No one could object to the smell of toast and Marmite, surely?

    I wouldn't mind that at all. It's well known that everyone likes marmite.

    Call me a euro-parochial, but I sadly am not keen on many eastern foods, and the smell makes me queasy.

    Eastern foods like pie and mash, jellied eels and whelks and that?

    And winkles. My great-uncle used to devour them by the pint.

    Whereas your mum has no great enthusiasm for the winkle.

    Am I doing it right?

    It's not uncommon for people to eat a kebab at their desk here - that isn't great. Mind you I had a very nice lump of camembert with my lunch the other day that did not lack in the whiff department

    Possibly, but I'm not in the 'your mum' club.

    After extensive scientific study, I have come to realise that Salade Niçoise is the single most offensive thing one can eat at one's desk, containing as it does the key stink trifecta of fish, onion and egg.
