People eating bananas...

It does my nut in (and I don't much like nuts...)

The squelchy sound of someone eating a smelly banana in a quiet office. It's horrible, I can stomach the smell (just about), a little more than stinky tuna, but the sound of someone eating one is stomach churning... I think I need to go find something to retaliate with, but I'm watching what I eat... Any healthier suggestions welcomed (though don't suggest things like raw fruit n veg!)

Nothing stinks out the office more than bringing back a hot chinese or indian takeaway for lunch.

Although the worst that generally does is make me hungry... and I can cope with that!

Were the people-eating bananas on the little shop of horrors?

Office Chair.

Fish.

We have a colleague who fortunately works in another office (only because of what he eats) but unfortunately uses the same kitchen.

His missus hates the smell of fish in the house and I understand why. He therefore about 3 days of the working week has fish microwaved for lunch. Not only does the kitchen pen & ink but if I wish to use the microwave after his fish

I've never noticed what noise a banana makes whilst being eaten, and I find such an observation hilarious

ok, maybe it's not just bananas (the smell adds to it I guess)... now they are eating an apple - smell isn't an issue, it's the noise

Careful you're not comparing apples with bananas here!


Sounds like you might be fruit-phobic
