1. Doritos

    These tasty treats might seem harmless, but the crunch of both bag and chip, the unavoidable finger-licking, and the post bag nacho breath should make you steer clear.
  2. Mussels

    Mussels take a lot of work to extract from their shells. They also smell. And any food that requires a separate refuse container (save edamame) should not find a home on a conference room table.
  3. Leftovers
    6d36f305 e307 4f39 b99d bce8dbab5325
    Is gnawing on the bone from last night’s Jerk Chicken over a partially melted Tupperware container really what you want to be doing when you’re getting a pitch from a vendor?
  4. Tuna Fish Sandwiches
    Fe514bde f778 4124 b820 0d430f5dee43
    Although the sandwich in general is one of lunches you can (and should) bring to a meeting if you don’t have time for lunch, the smell of tuna is just as pungent as the criticism behind you back after the meeting ends.
  5. McDonald's
    Dfee94f7 2d25 4995 b777 d34f153f1e3e
    This bi-yearly treat should be saved strictly for airport consumption. On the conference room table it sends several messages including “They aren’t paying me enough” and “I’m not planning on being productive after 2pm today.”
