So Fresh and So Clean

There comes a time in one's life when one must chip coffee grounds out of the workplace freezer. A time when one must sort through seven jars of mayonnaise and discard those deemed biohazardous. A time when one rolls up one's sleeves and dives headfirst into the vomit-stinking cesspool that once was a food storage facility, designed to keep edibles SAFE.

I cleaned the fridge at work on Saturday. It was something of an ordeal, one I decided to take on because of the smell eminating from the place I stick my lunch every day. I figured it couldn't possibly be healthy.

An hour later, having thrown away long expired milk, yogurt, salad dressing and pork steak (an inch of mold on that baby), I was satified with my work. Unfortunately I didn't take any before pictures, but here's the result:

I was feeling rather bold, probably as a result of sniffing noxious fumes for a while, so I put this note up on the door:

Did I make anyone upset? Perhaps. Probably the same people who left a molecule of marmalade or a six-month old half-empty juice box in the fridge. I imagined Monday something like this:
"Hey, where's my juice?!? I was saving that!!!"
"Heather, what did you do with my marmalade? I had a good gram left in there!!! You owe me a new marmalade!!!"

Thankfully, I only received positive feedback. We'll see how long the cleanliness lasts...

Until next time,

    Whoa, you cleaned your WORK fridge? Do you get overtime pay for that?

    I'm so filled with wanderlust. And I have money to afford it. If I visit you, can I bring a friend?

    Hey, now I know who to let clean my fridge! Yes, another nasty task to pass on to someone else.
