Boxes of candy with no map. If it's all chocolate, peanut butter/brittle, or caramel we cool. If it's nut I'm spitting it out. If it's fruit filled, especially orange, or cocoanut I'm gonna hurl.

Probably already said, but those people on Facebook who feel the need to share every single picture or article they come across.

I have an idle account on fb, but I was someone who liked my own status from time to time. I feel it was justified though. Example: Jason Heyward hits a home run. I would post "Jason Heyward" as the entire text of the post and then like it.

I actually hate posting things on facebook...and using facebook in general. Which is why I don't.

Because it was left in the public domain in the break room at work

The piece I took was all Sarris chocolate. First rate.

Speaking of public-domain food, I am peeved at the people who come along at cut that food into bits, particularly food that is already divided into discrete units. For example, yesterday some cupcakes were placed into the public domain at my firm’s kitchen. I walk in there and someone has raggedly cut one in half, which flung crumbs all over the counter. Just eat the ******* cupcake! I see this all the time with muffins, bagels, cake, cookies, slices of pizza, etc. where someone cuts the thing in half and leaves the rest. I don’t want something that someone else probably had to touch to cut, and WTF would I do with half of a half of a bagel? Just eat it!

I suspect this is being done by women who are employing some sort of women logic that food magically has no calories if you don’t eat the whole thing.

But it does have half the calories and that can be good.

Eating something like that is something you can do at home when you live alone. There is no other acceptable scenario.

People who treat me like a leper because I have poison ivy. Poison ivy is not contagious. Calm yourself....
