Two potatoes are sitting at the bar.
One potato says to the other,
"Hey, you're hot!"
Get it, Hot Potato??
They were not so hot yesterday at $5.99 a piece!
I walked off without my lunch (again) so my option
was to skip lunch or eat at the (subsidized) company cafeteria
managed by a large food service company. We don't
have enough time to drive somewhere and eat unless
you take an extra long lunch.
One option was the potato bar - it was normal baking potatoes,
not the red ones pictured here. For your $6 you got toppings
such as butter, sour cream, black olives, cheese, mushrooms, etc.
Sorry, a $6 potato is too dear for me!
And this is subsidized by the company !!
The cafeteria worker told my co-workers that it's normally $8.50.
I opted for a small salad (leaves and cheese only) from the salad bar.
I purchased a container of 2 boiled eggs separately (not at
salad bar weights) and chopped them into the salad.
Plus bought a drink.
For less than $6.
The sandwich/grill line was much too long and they have
only one worker at that station- always. They make any custom
sandwich, wrap, grill hamburgers, etc. By the time they go
through all that, your lunch break
is about over by the time you get your food.
My co-worker bought the potato and had to microwave it,
it wasn't even hot.
I'm just thinking that I have a tower in my side yard
that I need to dig up and harvest my potatoes.
I think I'll make my own potato bar.
