how to Not win friends Nor influence people

I like to bring my lunch to work from home, namely a large lunchbox full of unidentifiable leftovers, what can I say?? i'm stingey. One of my prerequisites for taking this job, was that they supplied a) posteurpedic chairs, and b) a microwave for nuking said leftovers..


Apparently my novelty lunchbox isn't going down as well as i'd hoped...


The concensus is that its "pretty gay"... "pretty hideous"... "that only some idiot with a pea for a brain would own that, let alone bring it to work"....

To be honest.. I just really like Spongebob... and I didn't want my leftovers slushing all over my bag. Is this it for me?!! Am I already ousted from the social group?!!? to be a social pariah because of my blindsighted daggyness and stupidity at bringing such a hideous lunchbox to work??!#@

DO I GET A SECOND CHANCE??

Do Prada make lunchboxes??

Think of it as starting a new trend.

I couldn't imagine you with any other lunchbox!

I think Prada do make lunchboxes - it's just that there's never any artichoke frittata left over.

I don't personally like spongebob, but I do like that kind of novelty thing. Try getting a porno lunchbox and see how they react to it. Its definitely much more growed up.

Rather that lunch box than one covered in Louis Vuitton logos that you know someone's just paid way too much for...yowza...

I've never done the lunchbox thing and it's for no other reason than I'm shitfully organised! I never think to buy freakin Tupperware or whatever is trendy these days, (spongebob lunch bags included)

I'll tell you this though. You put your sanga straight in your bag long enough and your bag will smell like FART.

It's hideous. Stick with SpongeBob.

I'm afraid you've blown it, dear. It's very hard to make a comeback after a bad lunch box experience. You might want to think about moving to a new town, getting into a new career and starting over from scratch.

I know your pain because the same thing happened to me, only it was a Scooby-Doo lunch box. You just have to pick up the pieces and go on.

Oh, man, I'm totally like Steph. If I can be arsed to whack together a sad work sandwich, I just shove it in a paper bag and hope it doesn't squash in the train the way to hell. What is the Spongebob attraction, by the way? I've never seen one.

If in doubt go neutral. Even if it means putting your lunch in a Myer shopping bag (the epitomy of neutral).

It took me 6 months at my work before I brought in my Kasey Chambers mug to avoid the scandal!
