Dirt Bag

At work, we have a training room where customers can come from all over the World to Orem Utah and be trained on our software. Just outside of that training room sits a table. 4 out of 5 days a week, this table is loaded with all kinds of food. Muffin tops from Kneaders, fruit, croissants, etc...And just above the table is a sign that reads "Food is for Customers Only". That's the rule.

I like that rule. It's a good rule. I usually respect that rule. But on the days when I commute in by bike, that rule seems a little silly.

This morning, the blueberry muffin tops looked too good to pass up. So I took one and ate in while hunched over in my cube. I disposed of the wrapper by placing it in the trash can in the empty cube next to mine.

One more reason I really do like my job. I can be a dirt bag cyclist and eat free food.

I'm just wondering how many of your colleagues read your blog. And know of your dirtbaggishness.

I believe this is called situational ethics and/or moral relativism? I just hope I don't crash in the same plane with you in the Andes.

I work/ride with Rick and I don't need to read his blog to know what a Dirt Bag he is.

A few of us refer to Rick as "D Bag" - you can fill in what you like for the D.
