Fun and Fancy Free

September 17, 2015 at 4:12 pm (Uncategorized)

An extensive renovation to the break room at my office is finally complete! The kitchen was shut down for a month and we’ve heard rumors of what could be going on behind closed doors in that time. Now we know the truth – we are completely spoiled brats and we’re all going to gain one hundred pounds.

Because check this out! Not only do we have the fancy coffee machines that make any foo-foo drink Starbucks does but we have a wide assortment of semi-healthy snacks, too. There’s Greek yogurt, cheeses, hard-boiled eggs, carrots and ranch dressing, veggie chips, oatmeal, various granola bars and all sorts of fruit, not to mention the different dry cereals and Chex Mix available in those bins you just twist to pour. We also have a skim and 2% milk dispenser and of course all of the sodas, juices and vitamin waters we used to have before the renovation. And did I mention this is all free? Because it is. Did I say how spoiled we are?

Apparently this type of breakroom is the next big thing with companies who are trying to recruit the top young talent coming out of colleges today. Speaking as someone who’s last job was with a company that went bankrupt – and where I witnessed the repo guy come and take our water cooler and coffee machine – these new perks are not something I take lightly. In fact, a tear or two may have been shed. And more tears may be shed in the future when I step on the scale after enjoying a bit of time with all of this free food, but that’s for Future Me to worry about. For now, I’m going to enjoy the hell out of some snacks and thank my lucky stars I work in a place that provides them!
