Office Adventure: Explore the Kitchenette Freezer

Kitchenette freezers primarily serve as receptacles for dessert leftovers from retirement parties and the annual potluck. Once a treat has been stowed in the freezer there’s generally  a 2 hour waiting period before it’s completely forgotten. This is due to the fact that Kitchenette freezers are rarely utilized, and therefore rarely opened (the only exception to this rule is those people who like to stow a month’s worth of Lean Pockets in the freezer at a time instead of just bringing lunch in daily like everyone else). Treats can hibernate this way for months on end, never moving and slowly accumulating a furry crust of freezer burn. The only was this cycle ends is either the Kitchenette Nazi takes it upon themselves to clean the freezer, or someone retires and the freezer is cleared for their dessert leftovers. And the cycle begins anew.

This is great news though for those of us who are daring, adventurous, and not perturbed by scavenging for food.  So next time you’re feeling bored, hungry, or cheap (or all three!) try freezer diving. You can almost always at least find a freezy-pop or two behind the pile of Lean Pockets. Just knock off any excessive clumps of freezer burn and voilà! Instant frozen bliss.

    This is less true if you have “crew people” who come back in from the wilds. Crew people will eat anything not tied down. People who store a months worth of hotpockets are asking for hotpocket “borrowing”.

      Sounds barbaric. I would suggest taping passive-aggressive handwritten notes to your food as an effective counter-measure.

    Our Kitchenette Nazi cleans out his, yes his, freezer every day that he works. He cannot stand to have anything in his pristine space. He has been known to dispose of items that have not even frozen yet This is not a healthy behavior in an environment where everyone wears guns to work.

      Ahhh that made me laugh. Our Kitchenette Nazi seems content to stick with controlling the coffee club with an iron fist for now. This has led to roughly 10 signs outlining the rules and regulations of making, consuming, and cleaning up after coffee, but at least it keeps them distracted from the freezer.
