Every Friday we have a pharmaceutical rep come into work and he/she brings a bunch of food to entice the doctors to come listen to their spiel. Today there is a bald, Indian guy sat in our conference room with a beautifully made buffet of food all lined up and nobody will come talk to him. He's sat looking sad eating finger sandwiches on his own looking out through the window at all the secretaries.


Feel kinda awkward....

So.....is he just the most depressing looking out of all of them? Or do people normally pay attention to the other ones? (i.e. they're better looking or something)

Most of them by the nature of the job have to be annoying and pushy. I find him particularly irritating. He takes great pride in putting together his buffets and goes on endlessly about 'treating' the doctors to his array of food but in reality it's no better than any other rep.

I avoid him these days because if I hear him talking about scones and clotted cream and strawberries one more time I'll go mad.

I dunno, Id probably pop in and listen to the dude if I got a free breakfast out of it

I just dipped in for some grub, will steal more when he leaves. Guy has brought big wheels of blue cheese etc. and posh chocolate desserts etc. He now has an audience of two nurses and this is what I just heard (with him holding up a picture of an elderly looking gent):

This is Dave. He has metastatic lung cancer. The most prized thing in his life was doing The Times crossword but due to his pain he can no longer sit up in bed to do his crossword. With our drug blah blah blah'

how is anyone homeless over there when you can apparently squat anywhere without repercussions?

We deal with that weekly at my firm. Vendors come in offering record or filing services. We flock to those conferences. Free food is free food. Then we just ignore their calls.

How is anyone ever homeless here when there are hundreds of thousands of acres of state and federal land that is virtually untouched? People could just disappear into the forests...

There was a guy doing that where I grew up, he didn't bother anyone so people left him the heck alone.

How is anyone poor when there's always jobs at McDonalds?
