    None.
    No one serving them means no one is completing the cut - which means people are touching more than one slice of pizza to separate slices, then just taking the one slice. Did they wash their hands? (Virus or no virus situation - yuk either way)

    None. I'm allergic to cheese. Any free beer with it?

    Does that mean I'm just going to lie here or are you going to take some sushi?

    Typically the same usual suspects at my place of employment. Same folks who troll past large meetings soon after they're over with the hope of scoring some free leftover bagles/muffins/pizza/sandwiches.

    If I brought my own lunch that day I wouldn’t take any at all. Otherwise I‘d look at how many people are in line, how many pizzas there are, and if the ratio looks decent, I’d take no more than two.

    Because while I could easily eat twice that and nobody’s stopping me from doing so, I’m also not a greedy, selfish a**hole.

    Hmmmm.....I think there might be a metaphor in here somewhere.

    Were these the people you predicted would do this? What percentage of your organization do you suppose avoided the exposure all together? In 2 weeks they will compose the entire organization.

    A. I do not have any control in my organization, and I had no part in setting this event up. I merely observed.

    B. I’ll follow up with you in two weeks. My bet is everyone will be fine.

    I always take a lunch. When we have catered meetings, I quietly just eat what I brought; there are too many things I cannot eat. I do it quietly as well - I do not feel a need to let everyone know I'm gluten free and low carb and avoid starches and and and. It's just food - it's just fuel. Everything does not need to be an event, every meal does not need to be memorable.

    How many of you remember every time you filled your gas tank? No one? Well, there you go.

    No, I wasn't implying that you set this up. I meant that as you watched did you find yourself saying "Yup. I knew that FatAss would bogart 5 slices of meat lovers. What, 2 heart attacks didn't teach him a lesson?"

    Large organization you say? Zero slices. I’m done eating at the employee feeding trough. I’ll figure out some other way to feed myself if I get hungry at work.

    I think eyes on your own paper. The whole 'everyone should get one piece before anyone takes more' is a totally silly construct. If the 'donating company' said 'one piece' well, okay, but they didn't. In that case, take what you want and move on and let everyone do their thing whatever that might be and accept them as they are.

    If we are going to be all judgy, should the fatties get any? should the virtue signaling do gooders be blamed for providing a high fat, high carb empty calorie treat threatening the health of the heroes?

    Where does all this complete idiocy end? and what, if we just observe and smh, we are what? smarter? better?
