Let The Gluttony Games Begin

From out of the humidity and haze, it's the season of company summer picnic days, free food brings the inane, these people are quite insane, they'll run you over by the deviled egg trays, a warning, don't get in their way, bub, or else you'll pull back a nub, the company CEO is here, but, forget about your b.s. sucking up, he's plastered, his toupee upside down, passed out from drinking way too much beer. .

We used to have potlucks at school. The last lunch shift had no food to eat because the five people who never contributed came in and made two plates each - and I wish I was exaggerating, but I saw it every time. It was so awful. This poem reminded me again why we stopped having these potlucks. Great title!

I like that title, for that's truly what these 'company get-togethers' actually are... I know at my wife's company when someone brings food, it's gone faster than crows descend on carrion. Oh, well...

Lol!!! The company my late husband worked at for 30 years had to stop hosting these summer picnics. Too many so called adults were taking way too much advantage. It was only supposed to be employees and their immediate families, but some of these bozo employees were bringing in 30 or more extended family members.

When I worked for large Corporations, I made it a rule to not drink at company gatherings. I witnessed to many people destroy their careers while enjoying a free bar. That free booze was quite costly.

Richard, you made a wise decision. My late husband and I would attend his company Christmas parties. Fortunately these parties were ok.
