Yeah, my manager came and apologetically told me that there are 'complaints' about eating fish, and can I please not eat fish? I am going to try to eat it on another floor that doesn't have the whine-babies, that think sockeye smells worse than a burned toast.
So this isn't even from heating it up? I mean, sometimes the heating part can wafted through the building but, that is far and few between where I work
We have one person here who hates the smell of fish (one of my closest friends) but, if I ever have it, I just eat at the other end of the table.No problems. Many of us have done that for her. Hmm, yeah, Kind of sound like a bunch of whiny-babies. lol
I have a couple of coworkers like that. They're also the two people who insist that certain parking spots are "theirs", and have special mugs in the community cabinets that they insist nobody else touch. It's not worth fighting with them about their stupid parking spots or mugs, but I eat fish whenever I damn well please. It's a break room, it's SUPPOSED to smell like food!
Sometimes I pour some water in and make a soup out of a can of salmon with an egg white, but often I eat tuna, sardines or salmon plain.... Dunno, maybe it will do me good since I will be eating less canned stuff. I guess I kindda had my revenge unknowingly because I had a craving for saurkraut today....
yeah, I usually make eggs for breakfast and fish for lunch.
Or convince the boss that it offends you when people wear a common color, like grey. Then, in dignified tones, start asking people to stop wearing that color, because it offends you. If that doesn't work, talk to your manager. Remember, this is bass-ackwards America, where instead of applying the normal rules of life to the few whiny outliers, we caudle them and make all the normal people walk funny to keep them from whining. This means that all you have to do is choose to be offended by some stupid little thing - and treat it like it really matters. Then the puppets must dance for YOU!
Granted, this whole thing can easily get you fired. If I were you, I'd honestly just eat fish at home instead, or use less stinky fish.
Yeah, I don't find that unreasonable at all. The smell of fish can be pretty awful. What about taking something like smoked salmon with you (that can be eaten cold), or some other type of protein that won't stink the place up?
