    Office toaster

    Since the canteen stopped opening for breakfast, I can't get anything proper to eat round here. I can't carry on starting my day with a cinnamon whirl or a pack of mini cheddars, so I'm daydreaming about setting up a toaster and a mini-fridge in an unused IT office. Does anyone have a toaster in their office?

    Make sure their is no smoke detector in the room first.....

    I'd go to the Food tech block and see if they have one there, saves pennies and cleaning!!

    Eat before you leave home, it's the only way to leave enough room for the pub lunch.

    Fridge, Coffee Machine, Kettle and Microwave. We do have a toaster too, but it is a Shaun the Sheep toaster that "baaas" when the toast is done and it astonishingly load and annoying. Toast is a last resort in our office!!

    to be honest i'd rather not use the staff room for 3 reasons
    1) it's over the other side of site, inconvenient
    2) noone takes responsibility for cleaning anything
    3) voluntarily going to the staff room is not a 'break' for any member of IT support staff (surely this is true in any school?)

    Instead ,come lunch time, it's door locked, blind down, headphones in and microwave on!

    All our toasters in school were banned when some muppet burnt theirs and set the fire alarms off...

    We do have a Tassimo Machine, Kettle and Fridge in the office though

    Our canteen does open for breakfast though but the ridiculous prices just make it prohibitive so get up 30 mins earlier each morning and make sure I get some grub in me before I set out for work
