I’ve seen various other threads about this which are always entertaining.
I thought I’d share my own story of the situation in our office and see what fun things any of you have to add; and any suggestions you have too.
Here’s the deal. Big corporation, cubicles as far as the eye can see. Our little Business Intelligence group takes up about 6 spaces. We’re a tight knit group most of us have worked together for at least seven years.
Our little fiefdom is also near the break room where my company provides free coffee, free fountain colas, and free hot chocolate. We were gifted a Keurig for our group’s use. Additionally we frequently bring food items in to share with our group.
You can all see where this is going I’m sure. Some people just walk right in and take food and make themselves a cup of coffee. No asking, no nothing. What the hell?
I’m one of those people who think there are already too many signs in break rooms, cubicle walls, etc. (“please don’t throw garbage down the sink”, “Don’t leave food in the refrigerator over a week”, “Don’t leave toilet paper on the floor”, “Shh, people on the phone, working!” … etc. etc. ) However someone in our group want to leave a sign as stage one.
That’s where this post comes in. How about some serious, and not so serious suggestions for a sign to let people know that this food and coffee is not free?
