There is a free lunch, but you can’t have any.

by statia on January 5, 2006

My husband is one of the luckier folks in the corporate world. His company provides them with free lunch every day. It’s not from a cafeteria either. It’s takeout from a plethora of restaurants in the area. The bay area dot com industry, isn’t she lovely? With her cool perks like, free lunch and free vending machines and other such morale boosting type stuff.

Me? I got screwed in that arena.

I’m completely convinced that my husband’s eating effiiciency resembles a Dyson vacuum. Whenever I ask him about his lunch, the conversation usually goes something like this:

me: What did you get for lunch?
him: (insert something really tasty in here), it was really good.
me: You ate it already?
him: yeah
me: damn

And I swear that he does this on purpose. Crams the food into his mouth in one bite, so that he doesn’t have to share, all the while telling me how good it is. Whenever I don’t ask, it’s something with hot sauce or jalepeños and I hate hot stuff. Or it’s a “philly cheesesteak” made with WHEAT BREAD SLICES, which just assures that I won’t even go near it.

After posting this entry, he’s going to start to be a complete wiseass by really rubbing in how good his lunch is, and then leaving me the crusts.

He laughs, but he got his the other day when his extra spicy taco salad dumped over onto his robe.

I did get mine, but you were the one who told me to just scoop it back in the taco bowl…so happy you did because it was really good (minus the dog hair).

I just wanted to see you cough up the hairball.

Free lunches. The Meester is spoiled. Spoiled, I say! :p

There is no such thing as a free lunch — I’m sure they are screwing him in some other way.

Ya know… I’d pretty well kill for a taco salad with jalapeƱos… the food here sucks ass.

Free lunches. You just don’t see that every day. Free vending machine stuff and pop, yeah, but take out lunch? Sweet deal.

He works in a high tech field that requires him to wear a robe? Video porn? ;)
