  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    I can't see that assumption. The assumption is just that where you work, there are employees who snack. The assumption is not that you are among them.

    First real place I worked had free snacks. As a 20 year old I had no self control. I don't resemble, "The Comic Book Collector," from the Simpsons, but if that place hadn't gone out of business I probably would by now.

    Bad snacks. Bad, bad snacks.

    For years, there has been someone in our building who just leaves tubs of candy at the entrance to his cubicle, and invites all to partake. Recently, I found the broken cookie store. They get all of the factory seconds from the local Dare (cookie) factory, and put them into 13lb boxes, which they sell for $15.

    I buy the boxes two at a time, and leave them open and inviting on the desk next to mine, which is currently unoccupied. Two boxes tends to last about three weeks. So, for ten bucks a week, I have made myself indispensible in this office. I even have the executive vice president stopping in every now and again for a free cookie.

    When I was 21, free snacks and sodas really made a big difference.

    Now, I'd rather they put the effort into 401(k), flexible schedule, good benefits, and not wasting our time with too many meetings.

    Seriously, if there's nothing we have left to do, go home. Don't have a meeting about it.
