When some of us have extra food
that we don’t want,
while thinking it’s a waste to discard it,
we tend to stash them in the office pantry’s fridge,
hoping someone else will appreciate it.
But something interesting happens…
It seems to no longer remain the giver’s food,
and everyone else’s instead.
And since it doesn’t really belong to everyone else,
it sometimes stays put and rots.
The fridge of supposedly goodies for all
becomes an accidental trash can!
But how do we avoid this from happening?
Offer and check food in person.
And remember – what you don’t really want… others might not either!
