Work Holiday Meal


This was the Thanksgiving meal we received at work yesterday afternoon. It looks way better than it tasted. They had the meal catered by who I can only suppose cooks for the prison system. Or I guess I should say that it tasted like what I imagine prison food would taste like. That’s how bad it was. When I couldn’t even smell the food (mind you I have no cold) I knew it was a risk, so I pitched it almost immediately. This morning we took a survey and eight out of ten co-workers suffered some kind of gastro-intestinal upset. I avoided the restrooms COMPLETELY.

    They should just give you the money they spent on that and let you buy something you want!
    Bleh.
    The prisoners in Gitmo don’t have an 8 out of 10 stomach upset.

    I once worked as a Nurse at the old Ohio State Penitenery. We could eat with the guards who ate the same food as the prisioners or bring a lunch. We usually ate prison food because it was damned well prepared. I even had Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners there a few times…excellent food.
    The first time I ever ate Quail was when I worked for the Maricopa County jail system. I was working in the medium security jail west of downtown and the Quail was donated but prepared by prisioners and eaten by the trustee’s and the staff…..great food. That was before Sheriff Joe.

    Someone else told me that they were hiring a chef at the prison here and that the starting pay was equal to that of a CEO- and they had to have graduated from a culinary school,ect. I always pictured the cook as being some greasy guy with gravy stains on his dirty t-shirt and a cigar in his mouth at all times that used to work as a fry cook. But I guess that’s sterotyping, huh?
    If all this is true maybe next year they really should have it catered by the prison.

    I had to eat two similar looking meals at the kid’s school this week – Thanksgiving with the Parents Day – it was hot though, and they haven’t killed the boys yet with botulism, so I dug in.
    Question: why does your company serve you Thanksgiving lunch? I always hated company parties.

  5. Laura says:

    I think they feed us a Thanksgiving meal because they don’t do a thing for us for Christmas (no food or bonus.) I don’t do office parties either.

    Laura, I just saw this new cookbook posted at Ace of Spades, had to fetch it over to you immediately.

    I was a secretary once upon a time in my early twenties and I dreaded Secretary Day, having to eat lunch with the boss was absolute misery. My lunch hour was the only bright point in a long, boring day – having to spend even one of them with that fat bastard was soul killing.
    I started my own business a couple years into that gig. No parties/lunches ever, just bonuses for the employees when we had a good year.

  8. Laura says:

    OMG Daphne- J sent me that in an email early today and I posted it on the left hand side under ‘My Links’! Hmm, why did I come to mind on a semen cookbook???!! LOL!
    Did you read the comments on that? Hysterical!
    Also, I wish I didn’t have to contend with bosses and office drones! Uggghhhh! I hate it.
