The paper cutter, the stapler, the tie-eating copy machine -- they all pale in comparison to the damage done by your average, innocent looking office refrigerator. As anyone who has a desk close to the break room will attest, the community cooler can do more damage to more people in less time than all the previously mentioned equipment combined.
It's gotten so bad, in fact, that Peter Moore, the articulate editor of Men's Health Magazine, has gone on a campaign to eliminate that stinky, skanky fridge in the workplace.
"As the economy goes down, brown bagging goes up," Moore says. "The days of the three-martini lunch are long gone; but now, so is the day of the one-cheeseburger lunch. To economize, more people than ever are bringing their meals to work, and what do they do? They leave the leftovers in the fridge and forget about them."
