Twin Falls Radio Station Friendship Damaged Beyond Repair – Food To Blame

Today on the Morning Show we explored the rules of food at the office.

Here’s the story:  Jackie shares her work space with another employee.  Jackie uses the desk in the morning and another person… let’s call her “Mary*” uses the desk throughout the afternoon.

Apparently, Mary left a bag of open cookies on the desk.  Jackie saw the open bag,  made herself right at home, strapped on the sack like a feed bag and started noshing on Mary’s ginger snaps.  Long story, short:  Mary isn’t happy.  While Jackie claims that the number of cookies she ate were “too few to even count” this doesn’t seem to matter to Mary.  Those were her cookies and someone took them without asking.

This got me to thinking.  This isn’t the first time I’ve seen quarrels over food at the office.  Some people seem to think that food left on a desk is community property and if you “only take one or two”  it’s not that big of a deal.  I beg to differ.  If you leave your purse on your desk, you won’t see me rifling through it because I just “needed a couple dollars.”

If it’s my property, it’s my property.  Hands off my food… and Mary’s too, I guess.

To Jackie’s credit, she did replace the cookies with a fresh bag so maybe that will smooth things over.  I sure hope so.  Right now Jackie and Mary aren’t talking and I miss hearing them giggle with each other while they talk about boys and skin care products.

My question to you:  What is the proper office food etiquette?  Is open food on a desk community property or should you ask before helping yourself?

Here’s what you had to say on the show today:
