Office Refrigerator Etiquette

Although we thought "No Name, Fair Game" sounded like a great rule of thumb:) here are the actual rules...

The office refrigerator is a convenience for you to use during the workday. Remember to be considerate of your co-workers as you share this benefit with them.
1. Do not eat or drink foods that do not belong to you.
2. Do not leave food in the refrigerator to rot and smell. If you brought it and didn't eat it, throw it away.
3. Do not leave foods uncovered. This is especially important when the food has a strong odor. Better yet, try not to bring foods that may have a strong odor such as garlic or onions. This is also good advice for your breath during the workday.
4. If your container leaks or spills in the refrigerator, clean the spill.
5. Do not rummage through your co-worker's food to see what they brought or make comments about what they brought to eat.

Thank you for the rules.  I work in a jail and you would be surprised at how often food is "stolen" by my co-workers.  Of course, the best time was when I put my partially consumed bottle of water back in the fridge and somebody else drank it.  Two days later, I was diagnosed with strep throat.  I don't know what happened, but I like to think that the thief got his/her just reward.

I printed the RULES and will post on our office refrigerator!  This is the bigest contoversy in our lounge, it is always terrible and when someone finally cleans it out, there is always one person that says" who threw away my food"!!!
But I am like you, I don't mind sharing my food, I should not assume others want to share theirs also!
