Anyone else work with total flyovers?
Here's how a recent conversation with co-workers went
>how was your weekend anon?
>pretry solid. Found a super good Mexican restaurant. Had some authentic tacos with nopales and everything.
>what the hell are nopales
>oh it's like some cactus. Texture is weird but when they grill it up its not terrible.
>HEY GUYS DID YOU HEAR ANON ATE CACTUS TACOS
>get ripped on all week for eating "cactus tacos"
Or another one
>what ya eating for lunch anon
>just some chicken that I coated in coconut flakes and fried up. Got a little spinach too.
>Oh don't tell them that. You're already catching shit for the tacos
This is literally nothing crazy. I like my co-workers but Jesus not every meal is a lean cuisine.
my office is full of Frat meathead dipshits that my boss hires because they were in the same fraternity that he was back in college. They tend to get triggered by vegetables
>hey anon what did you do for the 4th of July?
>I had some friends over and grilled some food
>what did you grill anon?
>well I marinated some chicken thighs and I also grilled some asparagus spea-
>HOOOLY SHIT ASPARAGUS FUCK THATS GROSS DID YOU GUYS HEAR THAT?
>DUDE YOUR PISS MUST SMELL LIKE SHIT
>FUCK HAHAHA THATS GROSS
shit like that
I ran into one of them in the supermarket beside our office, he saw a yellow squash in my cart and was like DUDE YOU BUY THE WEIRDEST SHIT. His cart had like 7 Lean Cuisines in it and a bottle of soda.
I kinda want a different job just to get away from these dipshits, but I get paid way too much to just up and leave
I love squash, I like to cut it into disks and baste it with olive oil, put some spices on it and bake it for about 30 minutes. It's a healthier alternative to potatoes.
Of TV dinners, I've found the atkins ones to surprisingly be the best.
I work night shifts with an Iranian.
His mum literally comes in while he's out on patrol and drops off a stack of tupperware full of food for us to share and then spends half an hour talking to me about him as if he's five years old.
It's hilarious, but also kind of sweet.
jesus christ this is one of the worthless things out there
I can nver get my head around how people like these have these jobs and they are actually paid to do all that dumb useless bullshit

I agree. When I was in college I was a shift leader in a factory that made machine parts. One summer the company paid something like 75k to have a firm send a consultant to observe operations and tell us what could be improved upon. After a week they called all the bosses and shift leaders into a conference room and the consultant gave us his findings. Literally all this fucker had to say was "everything needs to be more efficient!". He had no suggestions on how to be more efficient, nor did he even have any specific examples. They paid 75 thousand dollars for someone to say "do it better".
So yeah fuck "consulting", but at least my firm performs an actual service for the people that pay us
I went to lunch once with my co-workers to a sichuan restaurant. They order
>general tso chicken
I ordered boiled fish in spicy sauce (pic related) and I still get shit for it to this day.
>you're ordering fish? You're going to get sick for sure
>BOILED fish? Who boils fish?
Any time anyone mentions anything like OP's napoles for example they all say shit like
>oh anon would love that, he's a really adventurous eater
>he'll eat anything, he's like that Andrew Zimmerman (it's Zimmern) guy from bizarre foods
I don't know. I live in texas and i think the only fish my coworkers eat is fried catfish or long john silvers. Don't even get me started on the faces they make when anyone mentions sushi
Bruh I've lived in Texas my whole life and I know the exact kind of people you're referring to. There are some rednecks out there that fish who know their shit like rainbow trout or bass.
I went a buffalo wild wings kind of place with some coworkers and they had a new gochujang wing sauce. I decided to try it and now I'm known as the guy that eats exotic chink food. They were all disgusted because I chose a different flavor of HCFS sauce than them.
By the way, gochujang is going to be the next big meme flavor, if it isn't already in your area. You heard it here first
The fish was really good. Blackened red snapper
A rancher is tending his flock when a shiny, sports car drives up. A man in a spiffy suit steps out and says, "If I can tell you how many sheep you have will you give me one?" The rancher say, "Sure, I guess."
The man in the suit whips out a tablet, consults it for a second and says, "You have 56 sheep." The rancher says, "That's amazing, you're right!"
The man in the suit selects an animal and is loading it into the passenger seat of his car when the rancher says, "If I can guess your profession can I have my animal back?" The man in the suit says, "Sure."
The rancher says, "You're a consultant!" The man in the suit says, "You're right, how did you know?" The rancher says, "Three things. First you came without being called. Second you told me something I already know. And third you know nothing of my business. Now give me back my dog."
I am a volunteer at meals on wheels.
Most of the people there in the kitchen are fucking useless and half the time all they do is invent drama between eachother. Me and a few other guys simply do our jobs and get the meals done for that day.
And the worst part... It's all the women who work who do it.
>getting mad that people don't have the same interests you do and whining on 4chan instead of just joking around with them or eyerolling
you're probably just angry that they didn't drop their jaws at your aw-inspiring taste when you said you ate a prickly plant that you didn't even cook yourself, faggot
