Did I Just Eat Poison Cake?



We have a really unsafe behavior in the office where I work. Here's an example:

I just walked back from the bathroom and saw two of my coworkers eating delicious looking pieces of crumb cake. I made an immediate about face and marched into the kitchen like a zombie, cut a piece for myself, and took it back to my desk. I ate about half of it before I asked myself these questions, "Where did this come from?" and "Who brought this?"

A bad person could kill off most of the people in our office in about half an hour with a poison cake. We routinely eat anything on the break-room table without questioning the contents. Maybe next time, I'll find out who brought it before digging in.

If you want to see a reasonable facsimile of how quickly a piece of this crumb cake disappeared, watch this little video, but imagine it at twice the speed.

A healthy dose of horse laxative could have the office lying on the ground clutching their guts, dying slow, messy deaths. hmmmm....

We used to have a disgruntled/crazy lady that would bake stuff. I always found out if was her that made it, and avoid it if was. Other people just dove in! One guy kept a gun in his desk in case this lady lost it! She was eventually let go, but repeatedly tried to get back in the building...

If it's free, it's for me. And give me three.

I've been able to rid myself of all manner of stuff the city wouldn't take (old fencing, refrigerators, car parts) by baking them into cookies and leaving them by the office coffee machine. Works every time...

Brother Yam...that's brilliant! I've been wondering how to get rid of a big jug of Kerosene that I used to use for parts cleaning...

I might need to rethink my position on free food...

Office workers would make such an easy mark. Today a vendor brought in donuts for our office. But I didn't recognize him. Good thing I didn't partake.

Are you still alive? I await your next post so I know that you survived the cake.
