On a recent episode of ‘Country Mornings with Ayla Brown,’ an office conundrum unlike any other was revealed. Chris, a seemingly regular office worker, shared a peculiar tale of culinary habits in the workplace. Unconventional diets, live lobsters, and an aromatic office kitchen set the stage for an unusual showdown. This is Chris’s account of how his coworker’s eccentric lunch preparations led to a seafood saga that left the listeners of the show shell-shocked.
An Unusual Story
Recently, in the Country Mornings with Ayla Brown, Ayla spoke with Chris, who shared an unusual story that happened in his office space.
Chris shared that there is a kitchen at his office where the employees are welcome to prepare, bring, and reheat food.
Everyone is welcome to utilize it and everything was approved by the managers.
What On Earth is That Kevin?!
Chris said that he has a co-worker named Kevin, who brings in live lobster to cook and eat in the office.
Tidy Desk Seafood
Kevin has a pot of his own which he keeps under his cabinet and when he’s finished cooking he cleans it and keeps everything in its place.
Stinky Seafood Smell
A couple of times a week, Kevin would prepare and eat the lobster during his lunch break, leaving the kitchen with the lingering smell of seafood.
Eat What You Want but Must We Be Subjected to the Stench?
Chris says no one has any problems with his diet but the smell of seafood in the kitchen has become an annoyance for the entire office.
Livestock in the Refrigerator
Plus, Kevin keeps the live lobster in the refrigerator, which makes the entire refrigerator smell like fish.
He Doesn’t Care
Chris and his co-workers tried telling him, but he didn’t listen and kept on cooking lobster at the office.
The Big Breakout
Finally, Chris had enough of it and decided to act.
So when Kevin put the lobster in the refrigerator the next morning as usual, Chris entered, took it out, went outside and freed it, and then continued with his day.
Lobsters are Not Land Animals
Ayla asked Chris whether he freed it in the ocean, but it turns out he had just let it run around on the grass outside his office.
A Fate Worse Than Being Boiled Alive?
Ayla replied, “My heart just dropped. This is a little live lobster. You just let it out on the grass for it to just die.”
He Would Die Anyway
Chris replied, “It was going to die anyway. I mean, he was going to cook it. It was going to die either way. I’m well aware that the lobster probably died soon. So, you know, I don’t feel bad. It’s on Kevin now. Maybe he’ll get the point.”
Problematic Behaviors Put to a Vote
Ayla posted a poll on Twitter to ask whether Chris was in the wrong for what he did or whether Kevin was the problem for cooking lobster in the office kitchen.
Catch and Release the Biggest Issue
More than 75 percent of listeners voted saying that Chris was wrong for wasting a lobster and 25 percent voted that Kevin had it coming.
