Refrigerators and Freezers

Dear "Corporate Facility Supervisors" of America... Please take note that your job is seriously not THAT important.
  1. It is inappropriate & unnecessary to write in CAPS.
  2. It is inappropriate & unnecessary to write in bold;
  3. It is inappropriate & unnecessary to write in italics;
  4. It is inappropriate & unnecessary to write in red font;
  5. It is inappropriate & unnecessary to write in underlined font;
 Or any combination of the above, especially when all you're talking about is refrigerators and simply taking your food home with you on a Friday.
Best regards,

All Employees:

Please take everything home with you that you want to save by Friday, June 22nd as the cleaning company will be thoroughly cleaning the refrigerator/freezer in each break room over the weekend.  EVERYTHING left in the refrigerator AND freezer will be thrown away at this time labeled or not.  Notices will be placed on all refrigerators/freezers as a reminder.

Initially, it may seem wasteful to toss unclaimed food, but consider the following:

  • Unsafe "mystery" food (no name/no date), that is taken from the refrigerator and offered to others, may make people sick.
  • More money is lost when food is left in the refrigerator to spoil than if people learn to eat it in a timely manner.
  • When a refrigerator is filled with unsafe foods, there's a possibility an unsafe food will contaminate other foods, especially if foods are squeezed together to fit everything into the refrigerator.
 If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.

Thanks for your help and cooperation

My favorite part of this post is the very important notice about not sharing or copying the email, followed by "Blabbed by Laura and Andrew" LOL!!!
