Fruit Day again

It’s fruit day again (only the second one this year) and there’s already trouble. When the fruit bowls are distributed around the desks some people go round and decide that the others have got more grapes or plums than they have. We are actually queuing for breakfast when they come round, so when we get back up and see our allocation, some sod has pinched all but two of our grapes. Nige takes it upon himself to right the wrongs of the fruit pinchers, and goes round to inspect what everyone else has got and commandeers some grapes (like a green grocer Robin Hood, re-distributing the wealth of grapes).
In the afternoon Sarah gives us all a laugh by asking if she can “pinch our plums” and all the double entendres that follow about plums etc. With “juicy pears” being brought into play, we are hoping to see some melons next week.

Do they pay you in fruit instead of money? wouldn't it be more cost effective to give out lunch vouchers, if all the stuff just rot after a couple of days, and just gets thrown about.

It feels like we get paid in fruit. There are better things they could do with the money.
Keep a look out for my video footage of one of the Steve's juggling with the leftover fruit.
