Just Eat The Whole Darn Donut!!!
OK....first off, I can't wait until the high school sports season fires up and the Packers get going, so this blog, doesn't have to be a big session of little old me complaining. But then again, besides eating, and sleeping, complaining is right at the top of my list of things to do on a daily basis.
Today's complaint...deals with something near and dear to every radio broadcasters heart....or stomach....The free food. In our business, we have various people from the community stop by our station every day to promote various events around the area.
When they stop by, many of them bring donuts, or some other type of food as a "Thank You," if you will. Many have found out that the more food you bring, the more air time you get! ha! (Mary Ann Dilling of Fond du Lac Festivals is the "Queen of Food" at our office! She always brings her "A" game when it comes to spoiling the on-air talent!)
Anyways..now on to the rant...So we have on a daily basis, a plate of donuts, cookies, cake or whatever sitting out every day. For example today, there are donuts sitting about 10 feet from me thanks to our good friend Jerry Gordon from the Fondy Vintage Auto Club as he was promoting this Sunday's Car-A-Funda at Lakeside Park. As i sit here up walks a fellow employee and grabs a donut, and rips it in half, and puts the other half back on the pile....COME ON PEOPLE...if you're gonna eat the donut...take the whole thing! It's not like eating half the donut is goiing to keep you from becoming 300 pounds...and we all know that you'll be grabbing the other half in about 15 minutes anyway...so just take the whole darn thing now and eat it all! (most of the culprits are females by the way as guys just say screw the half...give me two!)
Can I go to a salad bar and take had a biscut and put the other half back? NO
Can I order a Big Mac at McDonalds and take give the cashier one of the patties back? NO!
Can I buy half a pizza at Pick N Save? Nope.
I guess it must be my purpose in life to get the office staff to eat an entire donut in one sitting! :-)
Have a great day everyone!
