Eating over your computer/laptop


#1

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 @Antpocalypsenow is STRONGLY against.


#4

forgot to make it not anonymous

hope these non eating people come and say why


#5

This is a misleading remark


#6

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


#7

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


#8

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.


#10

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


#11

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


#12

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


#13

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.”

SMH

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.


#15

Don’t eat over my own laptop but not too bothered about work laptop (though in my old job the cleaners wouldn’t do it so I would have to clean it myself)


#16

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.


#17

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.


#18

I have a keyboard cover just for this
