These Pretzels Are Making Me Thirsty

Every month or so, our office manager goes to the wholesale store and buys a bunch of supplies, usually including a giant tub of pretzel rods. (He said, "rod.") I'm fairly certain I am responsible for 50 percent or more of the consumption of these pretzels. I downed two paper cupfuls with lunch, and now I can't get enough of this water stuff. What I could really go for is a beer. But alas, we no longer live in a world where drinking at the office is accepted. (I heart Mad Men.) The upshot of drinking so much water is that I should be well hydrated for tonight's jaunt through Sand Run ... or wherever I choose to go. And by go, I mean run, not pee.

Somebody just brought in a giant glass jar of these weird waffle looking pretzels and they were gone inside a week. I convinced that it doesn't matter what you bring in, if it's free, people are eating it.

Have a good run!

I like the 'generic and meaningless tag' but I think it should be used on a lot more of your posts.

I also heart Mad Men! And, my work would be far more tolerable if drinking were still standard protocol. (Actually, there may be some professors who still think it is...)

You need an opaque non spill drink cup. Beer, vodka, whatever. Just don't close talk to anyone...

I think offices everywhere would be a bit more amusing if everyone was allowed to drink on the job.

ah, the good old days of enjoying a drink at work. at least you can still steal pens.

My friend's work has a keg. It is on a scale, so you can regularly go look to see how much beer is left for the week.
