Eating over your computer/laptop

what do we think, me and Mr S have very differing views - me no worries if you sit back a bit, him GET AWAY FROM THE MAC WITH YOUR BUTTERY TOAST

time for a poll?

  • I am happy to eat over my work computer
  • I am happy to eat over my personal computer
  • No food must come near any of my precious devices
  • Fine if it’s something non greasy / crumby
  • Not bothered either way
  • Something else

I believe this is something that @anon5266188 is STRONGLY against.

forgot to make it not anonymous

hope these non eating people come and say why

This is a misleading remark

Weird, I’d heard this as well. In fact, it’s the first way I describe you to people.

Natural progression from using a radiator as a coaster, shirley?

i have a two tier system

nice shiny macbook for music production: get the fuck away from it and don’t even put your drink anywhere near it

old windows laptop that i use for pretty much everything else: as long you don’t literally pour a beer over it, do what you need to

My work keyboard is full of crumbs. Peering in there now actually. Looks rank tbqh.

Really? You say “I know this guy on the internet who hates eating near his keyboard!?” that’s SO weird!

There is something quite satisfying about tapping out the keyboard on the desk every now and then and seeing all of the detritus that has accumulated fall out. When I used to have an ‘old style’ ball mouse, cleaning that was even better


Please don’t be so critical of the cards life has dealt me

No. What did I just write was the first thing I say to describe you? “He’s from the internet”?? NO

I say “I know this guy who hates eating near his keyboard. He’s from the internet.”



My keyboards are a mess! Both here and at work. Although I use external keyboards. I don’t care, though, fuck it.

Of course if I’d spent ££££s on a Mac rather than a PC I would probably care.

It’s my work computer. Who gives a shit! I don’t own it and I need to look at the pane of shame whilst i’m having my sarnie.

Depends what “over” means. I always make sure my plate is an inch or two away from my keyboard.

I’d never hold food over the device.
