Boston Globe: Heeding the siren's call of free food in the office

Every office has that guy.

Whenever there's a big meeting, you'll find him lurking just outside the conference room, ready to pounce on whatever food is left over. Somehow, whenever there's food in the office, he knows exactly where it is. The better the leftovers, the earlier he's there. Sadly, I think I have become that guy.
