    Now that a  lot of people are back in the office, at least part-time, some may no longer have the luxury of eating homemade lunch and moreover eating whatever they want. 

    This led me to a curious thought:
    What is the worse food that people eat in the office? 
    Do you have any other "food at work" experience you can share?

    As someone who used to have to sit next to the microwave, the answer is, and always will be, fish.

    A good way to forgive that would be to bring enough for everyone. My friend's company hosts a "chili-swap" during certain winter months. Everyone takes turns bringing in their own recipe and it ends up feeding everyone else who participates. (Personally I'm still pretty scared of subjecting others to my cooking though).

    While I was working part-time on-campus, I was the guy who brought his lunch. It was always either food I bought nearby from a Subway in the morning, or packed from home, and especially when it was the former, I was sure the workers next to me could smell it in the morning. The most I could do was enclose the plastic bag around it, and leave it on a table until it was lunchtime for the sake of manners.
