On the day of the company BBQ, crumbly blue cheese lay on the disgusting production floor. Someone must have dropped it from their cheese platter as they walked from the kitchen, through the plant, out to the patio.
The cheese is smashed into the floor. People must have overlooked it and stepped on it as they walked past. Jave walks past two women making their way out to the patio. Without a single pinch of shame, Jave bends down and casually scrapes the cheese up with his fingers and pops it in his mouth. He casually sings, “Lalalalalala” as he walks on. Jave must not care what people think of him and he must not care about filth and germs. The two woman look at one another all big eyed and both say at the same exact time, “Well that is terribly egregious.”
And they are absolutely right.
