OK, so here's something I would not write on Facebook. I shocked even myself, sort of.

OK, in a silly way.

Kinda pathetic way?

So, my temporary place of employment has all this leftover food usually. And especially at the end of the week things are allowed to be taken, but I at least never quite know when it's ok.

Wednesday or Monday we had some kind of Asian food with a shredded cabbage salad (basically shredded cabbage with dressing). So there was TONS of cabbage left.

I saw the containers earlier today, and thought, cool, they're putting it out so I'll get it later. I went back after lunch before leaving and they had thrown out 2 or three HUGE containers of cabbage. I couldn't believe it, so I looked in the garbage. Yep, it was there.


Since there was so much.


I reached in and dug down to the 'clean' area, and pulled a couple handfuls out.

Oh, my, it sounds so much worse when I type it.

Oh well, it's free food and I'm saving the planet. Ha. And there wasn't much on top of it, obviously. It wasn't like dirty napkins on top or anything.

Oh my...

Wasting food it the bad thing here, not taking perfectly clean food out of the bin to enjoy.
I guess it's something I wouldnt shout out to the world, but I'm sure I would have done it too!

Well shame on them for throwing out so much of it! This made me giggle, though, because I thought of a Seinfeld episode.

they leave a memo or something to prevent that from happening again.. or leave a note saying you will take it..
