Doesn't eat guy

    Does every office have an employee who never eats in front of other people?

    I've worked with at least two of the guys. Never eats at his desk or in the breakroom, never goes out with the group for lunch and doesn't even take a piece of cake, pie or pizza when it's in the office.

    I even made dinner plans with one of the guys. We left for an assignment a couple hours early so I could take him to one of my favorite places. When we got there, he told me he had already eaten before I picked him up.

    What's with these people and what odd quirks do you or your co-workers have?

    I thought this thread was about the yogi who doesn't eat or drink, and hasn't for 70 years.

    MTM, it's none of our business what your eating preferences are.

    Having a guy that doesn't eat in the newsroom may be a good thing.

    This is one of those stories that's too fucking unbelievable to make up. Back when I was covering local news, the sports guys at the paper I was at used to split a pack of Oreos, which is normal or at least can be on all accounts. The weird thing is, though, the one guy would crack open the Oreos and lick out the filling. The other guy then ate the Oreos.

    I'm that guy who doesn't eat in front of people in an office atmosphere.

    I have no problem eating in public with groups of people like in a restaurant, but I don't like eating alone in front of people when I'm isolated at a single desk or alone at a table. I get a "naked" feeling. One of my many quirks. People in the newsroom think I'm a jerk/anti-social because I don't eat when there are luncheons or parties. Instead, it's just one of my many neuroses.

    But invite me to lunch at a restaurant and I eat like a normal human being.

    There are people in my office I WISH wouldn't eat in public: gulping, grunting, belching, slobbering, burping, drooling, etc etc.

    You shouldn't be talking about yourself like that, starman.

    I wish I had not read that anecdote.
    Please don't share next time.

    Then I won't mention the "double stuffed" incident.
