Note to co-workers everywhere: When you come to a meeting, any sort of meeting, one thing you should NOT bring with you is a gallon-size Ziploc bag half full (oh what an optimist I am!) of Doritos. Even if you were to chew with your mouth closed the whole time (a good goal, I'd suggest) you still make a lot of noise with those chips. And if the sounds weren't bad enough, there's the smell. Sometimes that nacho-cheesy smell is heaven on earth, but at a 2:30 p.m. meeting when most of us are well into the digestion of our lunches, it's pretty disgusting. And when you share with others, it only increases my pain.
Given that I just realized I'm a true optimist, here's one way of looking on the bright side: At least the 32 oz.-cup-of-ice cruncher wasn't sitting on my other side.
