Q: How Big is a Mini Fridge?

A: Not as big as Mary Poppins’ purse. (Despite what my co-workers think.)


So, at my office we have a mini fridge. You know, to hold our lunch. Or maybe an afternoon snack.

But, some of my co-workers get confused by this, and think that it’s for their entire weekly groceries. I mean, why hassle making a sandwich to bring to work, if you can store everything needed to make a sandwich at the office?

This irritates me greatly.

All I want to do is place my DAILY lunch in the fridge, and I have to smash it in there because a co-worker bozo has decided to store an entire glazed ham.

Don’t believe me?

Here are just some of the things I’ve found in the fridge*, hogging up precious space:

1. A gallon of milk
2. 3 heads of lettuce
3. 12 pack of burritos
4. 8 apples
5. A week’s worth of frozen meals
6. A loaf of bread
7. A whole Rotisserie chicken
8. A watermelon
9. A gallon of orange juice
10. 5 lbs. of pasta salad

I tell you, if tomorrow comes, and I can't fit in my PB&J, I’m going to have a Nervy B.**!!!

*Not that I’m keeping track, or anything, out of bitterness…

**Nervous breakdown. Any Georgia fans out there?

Exactly how mini is your fridge. Because Chiquita and I have a mini fridge and we can barely fit 3 yogurts and a lunch sack in there.

Rachel, it's pretty mini. Hence, my complaint.

When people bring in HEADS of lettuce, or buckets of Deli meat (which are currently in there), I have no room for my sammy.

Doesn't everyone know what a nervy B is?

I am going to deem you Liz the Laugh:) as I am always laughing at your conundrums!

Have Rachel tell you stories about Christine, the district lady, who would not bring her own lunch, but look through the work fridge to "find" an unmarked lunch.

A guy I work with brings all the fixins for his lunch daily. He's always slapping mayo or pb on a piece of bread. It's kind of odd, but he's probably spending a lot less on lunch than many others are.

You should put a note on the front of the fridge saying that on Friday you will be cleaning out the fridge. Anything that is not marked will be thrown out. :)
