Someone just microwaved popcorn here. At least they didn’t burn it like someone at my old job did everyday at 2. Ick! outlaw microwave popcorn at the office!

LMAO – totally agree.  Micro popcorn should be banned from office buildings.  Don’t get me started when they burn it…

The smell is so nasty.  People are always burning it in the shared dining area of our building. Uggggh!

Haha– I was that girl once.  We were sent freebies of the 100 cal packs by one of our sponsors.  As soon as I put it in I regretted it, and of course, i burnt it too.  I’ve never made it again, I swear! lol  BUT, I didn’t feel too bad bc there are some people that microwave fish and other really stinky meals for lunch, and  I have to smell that several times a week.

I couldn’t agree more. The smell of popcorn makes me sick. It smells like dirty socks/feet to me. My Fiance is a movie goer and I am not because I can’t stand the smell of popcorn.

OMG, this was hilarious. I for one LOVE popcorn, but I cannot stand it in an office.  If you don’t know how to make it without burning it, DO. NOT. MAKE. IT.

One more day Kitty!

@Violet_Violet – I feel your pain!  I couldn’t figure out why it smelled like cat food (I HATE the smell of cat food!) in our office today until I saw my coworker eating this nasty looking thing.  I can only guess that it was fish.

Really, people?  There are so many food items with less scent!

I LOVE popcorn and make it in our office. But we have a seperate kictchen area (from the cubicles) so I make it in the microwave in there. Lots of people eat microwave popcorn at my office, so you wouldn’t like it here! LOL

Ahhh…I am so guilty!

I was a manager in a department store, and I went into the office to make popcorn.  While it was in the microwave, I got called to speak to a customer.  When I got back, it was horribly burned! 

Not only did the office smell, but the entire men’s department stunk for a solid week!  Yea…I was not very well liked that week.

I would kill for a popcorn smelling kitchen right now… someone in our office microwaved fish yesterday for lunch and it reeked all day.

It STILL reeks today.  I heated up some veggie sausage in the microwave for breakfast and it tasted gross.  My cereal even tasted a little off.  I tried to hint to her that it might be a problem… I feel a little jerky saying “fish that requires microwaving is not an appropriate office lunch” but kind suggestions were not really working and now I am sick to my stomach from my fishy breakfast.
