People everywhere think a box of doughnuts is fair game.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:09:28 PM EDT
Can I have one?
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:09:29 PM EDT
That's why I stopped hanging around with cops.

I think it goes back to the k1-3 leftist indoctrination of the "if you're going to bring treats, bring enough for everyone" theory. It's the oldest and most insidious form of teaching the proles that they're entitled to the profits of other people's sweat and toil.

Just make a sign that says "This ain't Mother Russia / NYC / England - no pay / no play"

Fucking communist donut pilfering liberals

Kinda like my boss.

I bring a pizza and he just comes over and is like "Oh! you got pizza? yum!" and then takes a slice without asking . I almost slapped it out of his hand

I Fucking hate that. They need to learn some manners.

I thought that was one of those inalienable rights.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:25:19 PM EDT
Because they are doughnuts.

Plain and simple.

What's wrong with you, anyway?


Do you think that when I snagged the dozen off the Verazzano Narrows bridge that I really thought I was going to get the whole dozen?

Sheesh!
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:25:24 PM EDT
Is that box of a dozen donuts just your breakfast or does it incluse you prelunch snack too?
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:25:35 PM EDT
DOG NUTS are bad for you. They stay solid and condense in your colon for years. They are like plastic they never never die.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:25:57 PM EDT
my bad dude

you want it back
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:27:12 PM EDT
yeah. I used to have to stick notes on the boxes.."Do Not Eat". I used to have meetings for victims families..somedays the boxes were empty before anyone showed up.

Pizza? No.

Beer? No way.

Doughnuts? An inalienable right.

a box of doughnuts is very inviting
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:29:04 PM EDT
If you buy a box of doughnuts and set it out on a table where people gather... that's pretty much an indication that you're sharing, I'd say.

If you want them all to yourself, don't set them out in front of everyone.

Now, if they're coming into your office or cubicle and grabbing them off your desk without asking or being invited, that's a different story.

It's the social norm. Deal with it.

Just be glad no one is seeing how many they can carry without using their hands.

Anything left on the table in the breakroom at my workplace is known and accepted by all to be fair game. If you don't want to share, put it in your personal space.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:32:38 PM EDT
Because it's a box of doughnuts...

Is this a trick question or something?

Put it back bite side down so he can't tell.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:35:01 PM EDT
I just take the whole box. Because if you take only one, eventually someone will take the last one, which will result in an empty box sitting there. Those who didn't get one will feel disappointed and left out. Everybody wins. If it saves one person from going through emotional turmoil at not getting a doughnut, it's worth it.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:36:09 PM EDT
Do what I do: take a bite out of every one of them, then place the bitten end down in the box.
That way when the mooching mother fuckers do a Homer Simpson "Oooo donuts!" and grab one from the box they go "Awwww...shit" when they see the bite!

I only licked the glaze off

it ain't like I was going to eat it

Maybe I'm a werido, but I eat donuts if they are out. They're donuts man

I also open people's fridges and help myself w/o asking.
I can't help it, I'm part Italian. I grew up w/ the idea ingrained into me that if i see food I can just eat it


I'm also that goofball who hands empty boxes of crunch n munch to the cashier when i check out

Speed

soooo lemme get this straight....



you buy a box of doughnuts.

you bring them to work.

you fail to guard them.

some turn up missing.

you get butt hurt.

instead of complaining to your office, you come to ARFCOM.

You post a thread and as most folks just take you as retarded, things don't go like you planned. this brings us current I believe.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:47:26 PM EDT
We have a table at work that is for food anyone would bring in, like if someone brings in cookies, cake, or doughnuts. If you put it on that table or in the kitchen area shit is fair game. If you put it in one of the conference rooms it's off limits, but any that are left over after the meeting end up on the fair game table.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:51:32 PM EDT
Sure, just eat the entire box on your own, fatty!
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:53:55 PM EDT
And people continue to wonder why cops are fat. Its cause they hoard the entire box of donuts for themselves.

Bingo.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:55:47 PM EDT
Around here the rule is "in the break room" = fair game, "on the desk with easy access" = look for a nod, "on the desk without easy access" = private stash.

That's for a work office of course. Rules are different for room-mates, cell mates, and family.

Put your doughnuts away properly and people won't grab them. Out of sight out of my belly, so to speak.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 1:58:38 PM EDT
box of donuts sitting out i can see that happening, what is worse is the people who go through the work fridge and take other peoples food

I did that about 7-8 years ago at a seminar.

You could tell the seagoing guys from the office people a mile off.

The office people went "Oooh! Yuk!"

The sailors dodn't bat an eyelash and chowed down.

I don't think doughnuts are fair game. Then again even when I'm told there are doughnuts and I can have one if I want. I have enough power resist the temptation to eat one of those sweet glazed delicious edible sins


What I want to know is why to people bitch about me ruining their diet when I bring in some homemade brownies(or other pastries)? Sure my brownies are half cheesecake and half brownie but that doesn't make them any less evil.

It wouldn't surprise me if piccolo invented that maneuver.

I have the opposite problem. I quit eating sweets, etc. at work long ago. Every time someone brings a box I try to decline and it's like they feel I'm insulting them. This morning some broad was pawning off gigantic gumball things.

So I just smile, take one and thank them...........

And ashcan them when they leave.

Gimme one, or I'll spit in the box, bitch!
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 3:03:06 PM EDT
Put a note in the bottom of the box.... "That wasn't vanilla creme".
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 3:04:02 PM EDT
I think a box of doughnuts left in a common area is universally understood to be there for the taking.

It would be tantamount to leaving your bowl of mints next to a cash register, and then getting mad when folks helped themselves.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 3:10:07 PM EDT
Because who would buy a whole box of doughnuts except to share them? To say it another way; what kind of massive fat-ass buys a whole box of doughnuts for himself?

This!


People are also not used to seeing a dozen donuts for any single persons consumption, the only time I have ever seen a dozen donuts at work was for everyone to eat them ...

Link Posted: 9/10/2010 3:17:25 PM EDT
If I buy a box of doughnuts, good luck getting your hand in there before it's empty.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 3:17:50 PM EDT
Because they are rude

They're donuts......just........just look at them....who could say no to this......damn things are my kryptonite!

I want a doughnut.



WHERE THE FUCK ARE YOU HIDING THE DONUTS!!!!

Exactly.

Unsecured chow is fair game.
Link Posted: 9/10/2010 7:44:40 PM EDT
Why do people think when they see a box of doughnuts they can just take one?


Because we've become a nation of pigs, both in appearance and behavior.

Any other questions?
