Updated photo on 6/12/2008, this is the clean version.
I meant to post this awhile back but never had a chance to do so. We only have a handful of people in the office, and we share a refrigerator in the kitchen/break room area. I seldom open that thing, so most of the time I’m clueless as to what is inside, but they had been complaining that it was stinky in there, obviously the stinky things that they were talking about is not my Padek (fermented fish) that Lao people like to put in our Tum Buk Houng. So one lady couldn’t take it anymore, she sent emails to all of us, and it read.

The refrigerator needs to be cleaned out. It is starting to smell. If you have anything in there that you want to keep please put your name on it so that it won’t be thrown out.
Please do this today!
As you can see, it’s during her lunch time, so she must have been in there getting her lunch, the aroma must have kicked her nose, how rude. After reading her email, I thought it was rather funny, but didn’t expect so many replies to this email.

Amen; I noticed this over the weekend, too. I threw away one stinky item this morning, but I bet there are lots more.

Amen, I found a piece of cheesecake but it didn’t stink, it was still good! But I threw it in the dumpster.
Just to help out.
The frig. is still stinky.

It’s funny everyone knows they are stinky in the house so they must like it.

Amen, I just went up to look in the thing and yes it is stinky. How do you all even use it?
You can guess which reply is mine, and comes to find out, the stinky things belong to Reply #1, also known as my boss, couldn’t believe the look on his face when he couldn’t identify or recognize that things that started to turn green, and couldn’t deny that they weren’t his either because they were inside a white plastic bag with bold print “(name of local university) Bookstore”, a university that his daughter attends. As you can see, we’re really on top of things, by 2 PM the refrigerator was nice and tidy, such a great team we have here. I kind of feel sorry for the refrigerator, maybe it needs a sign that said, “Please use with care.”
