Cake eaters

Yesterday I witnessed the most hilarious form of "I refuse to take the last piece" syndrome.

A building-wide email went out from a nice individual who brought in a whole chocolate cake from some function over the weekend. Of course, the early birds got first dibs. Personally, i don't really go for chocolate early in the morning.

Anyway, walked passed it at lunch and noticed there was one piece left. Then when I went to return my plate, I saw there was 1/2 a piece left. Then later in the day, 1/4, 1/8, and a I shit you not, 1/16th. Now honestly, who thinks leaving a slice of cake no thicker than a piece of paper is doing any a service?

I wish I had my camera, because it was pretty hilarious.
