Hate the smell of tuna. However, far more concerned by the college heating bacon... mm bacon. I was seriously desperate for bacon for days. Admittedly we have a proper oven set up primarily for client cooking lessons but staff are welcome to use.

We just had an email come out from HR banning all eating at desks.


Oh my goodness, no! That's horrible :(

For starters, I'd much rather work through than work late.

But more importantly, if you can't eat lunch at your desk that means going to eat in the kitchen/lounge area, which means well-meaning people are up for a chat and will come over and natter at you.

I'm not up for a chat at lunchtime, I need a little bit of a break from humans while I eat. No, I don't want to talk about your renovations or this article you saw in New Idea, I want to stare into space and not talk, thanks, but you can't tell people that without them taking it the wrong way.

This is why I'm glad I work from home so much these days.

I worked with someone who used to be horrifically loud with apples. Nothing else. One day he said he loved apples because of the satisfying crunch. He was doing it deliberately because the loved the extra loud crunch. No thought to anyone else. Fortunately a very blunt person was there and promptly told him to keep the apples at home then, because it was widely agreed that he was making everyone want to vomit with the noise. No one had had the guts to say anything but the blunt person was amongst a group of us that were temping for a few weeks so they didn't care. They got an anonymous thank you gift on our last day. I just hope he didn't start up again once we left.

I come into work early most days and will eat breakfast before my start time. Usually just a banana but I can’t eat anything too early because it makes me feel sick.

I am in a small office with one other person who eats a ridiculous amount of fruit. Apples, peaches etc, I have to leave the room I can’t handle the sound, it goes right through me.

Lol, I once worked with a raw foodie. Apparently they have to eat huge amounts because so much of the energy gleaned from the fresh veg is used up just processing all the fibre, so she constantly was either in the kitchen cutting up an enormous bowl of stuff for salad or else at her desk working her way through it.

I guess it's lucky the guy closest to her was deaf.

I was standing in the kitchen today when someone came up and drained a tin of tuna into the sink and tuned on the tap for about 3 secs.  

The smell wasn't';t nice and I had to rinse out the sink with some detergent but what he did was so totally inadequate.

Had not objection to the tuna but can  you please clean up properly?

My option is not there to vote on. I don’t eat Tuna but don’t care if other people do. Their lunch is their choice.
