Break Room Etiquette

You can see the box of pizza or donuts in the break room. The scent draws you to it and you open it with anticipation — only to find crumbs and a dirty butter knife. That was the inspiration for this Typewriter Rodeo poem.

Ode to the Break Room Donut

Tupperware with leftovers, salads from around the corner, candy from the vending machine – office food can get boring.

And every now and then, a magical thing happens in the breakroom: someone brings donuts.
