I have boycotted use of the establishment's vending machines too. Been bringing my own drinks and snacks...saves a ton of cash.


unless you're making your own drinks and snacks from things grown on your own property you're still an establishment pawn.

Don't really have this problem b/c the people I work with are OCD freaks. Not even joking.....but I only work with 7 other people.

Don't drink coffee, I bring my own tea every morning

Some of you guys really need to start watching the office lol.

My solution?

I bought one for like 50 bucks at the hardware store, with a coupon it was damn near free. Put it next to my mini-fridge....
no more issues with disgusting common fridge or microwave.


exactly what I did as well. My girls bought me a mini fridge for Father's Day, I bought a cheap microwave and a coffee pot...no more issues here!

No room in my cube for a microwave. And even if I had an office, I think we have power restrictions in our building that limit the number of appliances we can have plugged in our offices.

I am strongly considering buying a Keurig, though.

you should also consider unplugging your vibrator and plugging in a microwave instead

I would starve before I put anything I was going to eat in either a common microwave or refrigerator.

My vibrator is battery operated, stupid.

It's the air pump for my inflatable office wife that's draining all the power.

We have a co-worker that's everything-intolerant and the poo he puts in the microwave smells absolutely awful, even though it's "organic, dude!"
