There’s No Such Thing As Comfort Food?

Do you pack snacks for work?  I do.  Boring ones like gluten-free granola and crisp breads since I'm going without wheat/gluten and soy for the time being.  The kind of snacks that makes you fellas' eyes roll!  But pizza would normally be my favorite comfort food.  Do you have one?  Mac and cheese? Peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream?

The number one comfort food is chocolate.  But does it really comfort us?

So How Much Money Do You Make?

 

Um, yeah. Don't answer that ... yet!

I read an interesting article in the NY Times this week that said because so much information now is out in the open with social media, we may be entering a time when salaries aren't quite as secretive as they have been in the past.

Fantasy Football Sucks The Life Out Of The Workday

I'll admit it, Fantasy Football is fun!  So much fun that I had to ban myself from playing.  I was spending way too much time tweaking my lineups each week and dropping and adding players, and worrying about how I was going to beat co-workers named Mike and Amy that I worked with at the time.  I recognized the obsession and quit cold turkey.

And I didn't like that I was rooting for the Ravens defense to intercept Peyton Manning just so I could get a few fantasy points.  Peyton Manning is my boy!  And I became a traitor to him in the name of Fantasy Football, and I felt like a big cheater so I quit.

How much workplace productivity is wasted each year because of Fantasy Football?  It's shocking!

What If We Had A 3-Day Work Week?

This story may not have quite the impact if it was coming from a video-game-playing dude in his twenties who spent most of his time on the couch eating chips.

But it's coming from a guy with big ambitions who heads a multi-billion dollar company, and is the second-richest person in the world behind Bill Gates.

How to Catch the Office Food Thief [VIDEO]

It’s happened to us all at work at some point or another, that lunch you brought in and placed in the office refrigerator somehow disappears by the time you go to enjoy it.  That’s happened to me quite a few times here at the radio station but hasn’t happened in a couple of years though thankfully.  One guy, at an unnamed company, was tired of his fruit being robbed from his desk, so he took matters into his own hands to find the culprit.
