By Definition, You Are All Weird

Since I don't make six figures at my current job, I do odd jobs here and there so I can afford the lifestyle to which I am accustomed to (food, shelter, HBO). My favorite odd job is baking cakes and cupcakes for those who are willing to pay me.  I'm no Ace of Cakes, but I consider my creations a bit more creative than a sheet cake from Costo.

So this morning I brought in a dozen cupcakes that one of my coworkers ordered.  And because my amazing frosting needs to be refrigerated, I stopped to drop the box off in the fridge in the lunch room.

That's where I ran into a problem - The fridge was almost completely full.

And you know what was taking up over 50% of the space?

Insulated lunch bags.

That's right, the space age technology which be definition keeps your food cold for 3 - 5 hours until you are ready to eat your lunch.

So why are they all in the fridge?

I have no idea.  But I am open to suggestions...

Empty contents in trash can and replace bags in fridge. Place a sign on fridge door stating that placing insulated bags in frig can cause a chemical reactions between the two cooling methods that makes food inside vaporize.

Note is optional.

That always used to irritate me. I brought my food in an insulated bag with one of those frozen blue bricks in it for the express reason that I could stow it on a shelf over my desk and I didn't have to put it in that refrigerator, which often smelled like a chilled bag of gymshorts.

Do you also have the Sharpie on top so every diet obsessed coworker can write their names on their individual stack of Lean Cuisines? On any given day there were about forty of them in our office freezer.

Don't even get me started on the whole "Lean Cuisine" thing....
