You've Been Warned...

By Beth Beutler
1     "You've been warned," the email stated. "Get your leftovers out of the break room refrigerator by Friday, or they will be thrown out, containers and all."
 
2     Patricia, the office manager, hit "send" in frustration. The staff members seemed to leave things in the refrigerator forever. She had just checked the refrigerator and had seen some disgusting things: containers of food with mold on them, salad dressing that was outdated six months ago, and an unmarked container of pasta that was who knows how old.
 
3     On Friday, not unexpectedly, Patricia found that many of the items were still in the refrigerator. She sighed. Where were the rubber gloves? Patricia was meticulous about being clean. She checked under the sink and found a box of plastic gloves. She put on a pair and dragged the wastebasket to the refrigerator.
 
4     Taking one item at a time, Patricia checked to see if it was labeled. If it wasn't, out it went. Then she looked at items like salad dressing and coffee creamer. If it was past the "use by" date, she threw it out. A few items were relatively new, and even though they didn't have a person's name on them, she kept the items in the refrigerator.
