There's a reason mac&cheese is a classic dish, and not just because it's undisputably delicious. It's the simplicity — but this person went a little too #basic.
You wouldn't think there was a way to screw up macaroni and cheese. Someone did manage to, because humanity is nothing if not an endless fount of disappointment.
Let's be real, none of us bring our A game to work potlucks, but some person who is very grateful to be anonymous right now brough this abomination:
Look at the macaroni & cheese my coworker brought to our potluck today. Bruh. pic.twitter.com/TJ494IFjy5— Jan Levinson (@coolstoryjanis) October 19, 2017
There's very little in the world that is objectively bad, but this attempt at macaroni and cheese that is literally just cooked pasta plus some shredded cheese makes the grade.
There's no evidence of spices or, really, much of the cheese being melted, which makes us think this "dish" came together after the macaroni cooled down and that's just too sad to contemplate.
Commenters had a lot to say, predictably:
Work potlucks are the worst. It's like passive aggressive office terrorism— drag me to cHELL👻🎃 (@sweetfructose) October 19, 2017
She shouldn’t have been able to eat anything BUT that macaroni she dragged in.— Paige Marie⚜️ (@impettypaige) October 19, 2017
You need to report her to HR immediately for harassment. Tell your manager to fire her for creating a toxic work environment.— Serious Black (@NicT10) October 19, 2017
Anyone who remembers dating in middle school can recognize the metaphor in this:
It's like the mac and cheese are on a first date. I do not want to meet mac and cheese on a first date.— LibrarianToBe (@YayBooksYay) October 19, 2017
Another shared their own office food horror story:
This reminds me of a coworker who brought us "cornbread" which was literally just bread but with random kernels of corn baked into it.— Danielle S. Pumpkins (@daniellegee) October 19, 2017
You can only fake it for so long, coworker.

Bosses, this is a good time to remind you that this catastrophe could've been avoided:
😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭 y'all gotta assign things to certain people. Get folks who bring food and who bring drinks.. this is unacceptable— fickle fuckle. (@Bequian) October 19, 2017
That said, at the end of the day, food is food to some people, even if that's your own lonely truth to live.
The sad thing is, I would still eat it.— Max Weiss (@maxthegirl) October 19, 2017
So come on, guys. You may not like all your coworkers, but you don't have to take it out on the entire office.
