old fridges in new bottles
July 16, 2009
I haven’t talked about the fridge here at work for a while, cuz, you know, we exorcised it months ago.
Well, a building with 50 people in it can’t be fridgeless forever. Too many mini-fridges overloads the circuits.
Of course, BRAND new would be too much, but it’s new to us.
See how lovely:
And it comes with a stern new policy from a new sheriff in town:
As many of you may have noticed already this morning, we have had a refrigerator donated [um, emphasis added] for our use. Please be mindful of the following stipulations:
· The fridge will be cleaned out every weekend. All items that are not factory sealed will be disposed of at this time. This includes all Tupperware type containers.
· The fridge and freezer will be completely cleaned out the first weekend of every month. This includes all factory sealed items in both the fridge and freezer.
Of course, a couple things bother me. First, the fridge is donated. Really? We just couldn’t pony up for a fridge? REALLY?
Second, the fridge will be cleaned out periodically. I guess that’s awesome, but my question is, if the fridge can and will be cleaned out NOW, why couldn’t it be cleaned out THEN.
And by THEN, I mean this:
I’m also a bit concerned that this fridge isn’t new. Did someone only move the headstones again? I snuck back into the break room when the fridge wasn’t looking. This is what I saw:
It looks like the refrigerator version of the Overlook Hotel. I think our old fridge lives inside there somewhere.
No good will come of this. I’m sticking to the mini-fridge.
