Spoon Dispenser Roulette


The cafeteria at work transitioned to plasticware dispensers a few years ago. These devices replaced the containers that used to hold the metalware, and then plasticware. 

I guess somehow recycling plastic is "more green" than washing metal forks, spoon, and knives. 

Because I often eat chili or soup for lunch, I generally use only the spoon dispenser . 

The spoon dispensers, over the years, have developed some into a lunchtime game for me. 

Here is the game. The dispensers release the spoons so quickly that if not caught, they spoons slide out of the tray and onto the floor. Getting a spoon has become a game of reflexes that requires that I grab the plastic spoon before it slides out and hits the floor. 

I have become pretty good at grabbing the spoon.  

I guess it is just one of the games I play to add some spice to the day. The food in the cafeteria certainly isn't that interesting.
