Snack bar
« on: 02-11-2005 -- 03:41:02 »
I run the snack bar, it's fun.  What kind of snacks do you guys like?  Sometimes when I'm feeling down about 2P051 I just pop an ol' snackaroo in the mouth and I feel fine.  Caffine keeps me sharp and alert to avoid fatal shocks from dangerous TMDE.  Moral has soared since I aquired the postion of snack bar moniter.  All in all the snackbar has generated several thousand dollars of revenue for our PMEL club, funded several Ace award luncheons, and kept the troops on their toes and happy.  SNACKBAR 4 LYFE!!

here here to the jolly snack bar monitor. You know I have been in PMEL a long time and this position has always been overlooked. There's no feeling in the world like taking a break from a long hard calibration to sit back and and enjoy a tasty snack. Twinkies, chips, candy bars you name it. I personally can't resist anything with "Little Debbie" on the label.

MMMMMMMMMMMMM.........I love it when our snackbar monitor pops an ol' snackaroo in my mouth.   It really "raises" my morale.  Along with that I like to wash it down the gullett with a tasty ice cold beverage of my choice.  Theres nothing more suicidaly depressing in PMEL than to go on break and find out that the fridge has been cleaned out and all thats left are a few luke warm Shastas.  Our snackbar monitor fills it up every week and even turns the cold cans a full 1/4 turn to preserve its freshness.  Three cheers for the often overlooked and yet ever so important snack bar...it's the spinal cord and partial nerve stem of any hardcore PMEL'er.

Our snack bar is half way decent, more often than not it's barren though. I'm calorie obsessed so I don't eat out of it anyways, but the people who do seem happy.
The dreams in which I'm dying are the best I've ever had.

We used to have a snack bar nazi at one of my previous labs. The guy would get upset if people misaligned the ramen cups. Guess what people would do everyday like clockwork? :-D

The problem I've seen at all previous labs, is that the snack bar seems to lose money. Ultimately the monitor gets blamed... :?

We had one guy who decided to use the snack bar as his personal bank. One day he withdrew a loan of about 80 dollars and responsibly wrote the proper amount next to his name on the IOU sheet. :roll:

Suffice to say, the snack bar monitors didn't have the money to fully replenish the snack bar that weekend. They also instituted a IOU limit of 10 dollars (you think they would have had one from the start!).  :mrgreen:

We don't even have a snack bar at my current workplace. It's a drink bar. Non-alcoholic that is. :-D

Well, we had a snack bar but it's slowly going the way of the dodo.  Some idiot keeps swiping money from the change bin, leaving the rest of us to suffer.  A lot of it keeps happening when the snack bar monitor is gone on leave or something like that.  Some people's kids...

It never ceases to amaze me that people with paychecks would do that.
