    The only time I ever had my lunch stolen out of a work fridge was when I worked at a law firm that was one of the 50 largest in America. I told my secretary about it and she was pretty sure it was one of the partners, as he allegedly had a history of doing such things.

    I'd take a pan fried burger over a burger cooked on a grill 10/10 times.

    My company on RARE occasion will bring in lunch for a meeting. I have a ton of dietary restrictions, so I alway bring my own lunch, and just quietly eat it as other get theirs. No big deal; rarely do people even ask why. I refuse to the "that person" who makes everyone / the person ordering jump through hoops for my issues. It's one lunch, afterall.

    If I am out of town at a meeting, I will just eat what I can from what's provided. Skipping a meal won't kill me.

    We bring in lunch a couple times a year at my office. We have one colleague with dietary restrictions who brings his own lunch and we feel bad about that. One time lunch was brought in from the only halal restaurant in town and wow, that was the best lunch ever! People talked about it for weeks.

    Lesson?

    I do the opposite at work. I work in a small town and 98% of the staff commutes here. I'm one of two or 3 that live in town (4 blocks away) and so when it snows they'll typically send everyone home early and I'll stay until 5 to hold down the fort.

    I haven't had a sloppy joe since I was a kid. What's the difference between it and a hamburger? Some kind of nasty gravy? If sloppy joes are so great, they must be served at all the finest restaurant of Europe. If not, maybe this business needs to rethink its lunches.

    It snowed here in Bakersfield in January of 1999. I got up and went to work as usual, only a couple of us along with the boss showed up out of twenty six. When I got to work we hung around for a little while and the boss said, we might as well go on home. It was a pretty decent snow for Bakersfield about four to six inches all over town. People were going nuts out playing in it, nobody was driving it was an earie feeling to be out driving on deserted streets. It looked to me like almost everyone just stayed home that day.

    We have tons of free food at work. Most of the time I don't eat it cause I'd rather not gain 30lbs.

    C'mon man, my wife just fixed me up with some Basque style soup and beans a couple of nights ago. Big bowl of Basque soup, then you ladle in some beans, and have about three or four corncakes lavished with butter. After a big helping of those beans and cabbage soup, you could blow up a four wheel drive John Deere tractor tire in fifteen seconds.

    Oh man, you'll hate sleeping in when you want, going to the golf course anytime you want to, and playing guitar as late as you want to.

    I'm just saying sloppy joe is a short step from dog food.

    I love to have a nice sloppy joe once in a while - it's bolognese sauce on a bun. What's the matter with that?

    Don't understand the hate for pan-fried burgers either. A nice hot cast iron pan is a great alternative choice for a burger (or a steak) when it's raining and cold outside.

    Maybe I'm misremembering. Like I said, I haven't had a sloppy joe since I was a kid. Survey time? Do other forum members eat them> How often?
