Ew, I would ask her to leave her stuff at home so everyone else could have space to put stuff. Tell her you wanted to bring left overs from lunch back to take home but you knew there wasn’t any room on the fridge.

There is no reason for her to take up that much space in the fridge.  She should prepare her salad at home and bring it in – a tupperware container will take up far less space than all that crap.  3 onions, seriously?  I used to bring in all the stuff to make a salad and then realized it was rude (plus I kept forgetting about stuff and left stuff to spoil in there) so I just made my salad the night before.  Someone should suggest something to her…or send a passive aggressive office wide e-mail, or maybe post a nice passive aggressive note on the fridge. lol

EW, ask her in a polite way to make her lunch at home, explain the small amount of room for other people food. If nothing else, maybe eat a few lunched, and if she says something, say well I thought you were supplying lunch for everyone.

I am so glad our fridge has small bins in it and that is the space we get, no more. I would write a note anonymously and tape it to the fridge, specifically naming her and asking to please prepare salads at home and take up less shelf space since it is a community fridge. If she doesn’t stop, I’d start a petition (to those you know have complained) and then send it to HR with a note saying everyone feels this way and by not doing anything they are helping create a hostile work environment! See if that gets their attention.

Embarassed I bring a week’s worth of snacks to work and leave them in our fridge… the difference is there are fewer of us in the office, and we have a full size fridge, and I NEVER leave anything in there long enough to spoil.  Oh boy I hope I’m not “that girl” at work!

I would think the 4 bottles of green tea is the first thing I would ask her to remove. 1 at a time is fine. Or none, and just use a little ice

Yeah she could easily prepare that at home and just add the dressing at work.
