"NEVER take pills off the freebie table!"

Gentle reader, I put that bottle right down.

...LOL, what? Your workplace has a table of untrustworthy pills? Why does my workplace not have fun stuff like that?

Looked like a bottle of multivitamins for clear skin to me, but apparently what do I know?

Is the freebie table where they put stuff that was given to the magazine for free so they can review it? If so, maybe the pills are considered dangerous because they're untested. Or having some removed by an outside party would interfere with the testing data. (Although in those cases, you'd think that they wouldn't leave them sitting out.)

I've given a few coworkers admonishments over the years, but they're usually more like, "Be careful with that, it's live," and "Why would you put sprinklers in the high-voltage electrical room?" :-P

I think it's most likely that they just sat on some editor's desk until way past the use-by date. (I did read the ingredients. Multivitamin. The issue with vitamins is that sometimes they are a crock, but if I'm not paying I don't see the direness. Unless they're not water soluble, but that's beside the point. I think uselessness was more the issue than danger in that particular case, though you wouldn't know it from my coworker's voice.) For "pills" in general I can see the caution. Being who we are we are sometimes sent jackass products like diet pills. Mainly though, I just thought the situation was hilarious, especially considering how I snapped to obedience (unlike me) and how my normally mellow colleague nearly inspired a "Heil!" :)

This is one of those "Story in two sentences" things, well done, well done. *grin*
