Fruit Day

Like last year, for a couple of months during the summer, Wednesdays were declared “Fruit Day”. Around 11.00 on the Wednesday morning we get bowls of fruit distributed through the office, which you imagine would be a good gesture, but usually there is a lot of wastage. Usually the easy to eat fruit (bananas, grapes, etc) all goes very quickly, so you are left with oranges,(which are impossible to eat at work), apples, pears and nectarines (which are much less popular. At some stage last year they even had pineapple and melons (cut into pieces of course). Then the left over stuff remains lying around the office for the rest of the week, until Thursday afternoon and Friday become “Fruit football” days, where the left over apples and oranges are rolled down the office, kicked around, or lobbed at people’s heads.
