Got condiments?

     This bowl sits on top of the microwave where I work. It has become customary to place any surplus condiments or unused cutlery packages left over from your takeout order into the bowl for the next guy!

     You can usually count on finding an extra fork or a napkin or even salt and pepper here when you need it. Not today ... I just wanted a fork and all I found was enough ketchup, mayo, mustard and ducksauce to accommodate a small country.

     It's hard to tell from the photo just how big the bowl is and just how much special sauce is in there. We will be moving to a new building soon, I wonder if the bowl will make it to the new place or if maybe we will start a new one? I'll keep you posted. lol

     OK ... I admit it, I've sort of got a writers block, I think it may be coming from not taking as many photos in the last month or so, as usual ... no photo, no entry!

     I've really got to get out more, if only to save you from running across such nonsense when you come here! Happy rest of the week all!

Coy
I have a little place in my Dock Shack where we collect the same kind of stuff.  Mine is not as colorful as yours, LOL!  I have to clean ours out every couple of months or so.  I have the same luck as you do. If I need a fork or soy sauce or, whatever, I can find everything but that one item.  Go figure!

We've got a Ketchup Drawer here at work that I have to go through and empty out from time to time.  I think every office should have one!!  You know, for the times you've got steamed rice, but no soy sauce...that kinda thing.

Of course, our drawer doesn't look as pretty as your bowl.  I say, keep it!

Coy~lol, I'm sure a lot of folks stuck working in boring offices can relate. Let's face it; life is not, nor does it need to be, exciting every minute. TC~Hugs, Sassy

It's better than having a stash in everyone's drawers drawing bugs!

lol lol can I borrow a cup of sugar too?  I too find it hard to write or should I say, I'm afraid too without posting "happy Pictures" of my family. If I start writing about the dark sides, I'd be here writing into infinity!! Kind of shy away from personal stuff but after reading soo many journals, I'm getting that this is a lethargic avenue for getting it out. Hard for me to do but I'm working on it!! Have a good day yourself coy.

LOL I found this post (and photo) very funny! I have a pumpkin shaped glass canister full of this same kind of stuff (plus a bunch of fortune cookies). I keep it on top of my toaster oven!
