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.

So come on, guys. You may not like all your coworkers, but you don’t have to take it out on the entire office.
