Friday Fun: Corporate Indicator? Refrigerator.

Here's a picture of our work fridge:


No, we didn't just clean it out; this is how it's looked all week. Amazing how little it's used when the company only employs a handful of people.

Gone are the niceties of early start-up life, the beer, the free soda, the fresh fruit and snacks. We don't even stock milk for coffee anymore. Note what's also missing: Forgotten lunches. Tupperware. Old birthday cake. Fast food leftovers.

That seltzer on the right? The boss's. Ditto the hard lemonade in the drawer. The Coke? The part-time facilities guy. I don't even know who owns the bruised fruit.

The champagne, however? That's mine. Relic of a more optimistic era - I was going to crack that when we won our first big contract.

Been sitting there for over a year.

Happy (?) Friday,
See Arr Oh

  5. For a moment I thought you inventively called champagne "hard lemonade".
