I did this once – only once! I think I had just read about how much healthy omega-3 fat is in sardines. Sitting in the lounge area at work, I popped the flip top on the little tin for a mid-day boost of anti-inflammatory action. No sooner had I allowed the fishy fumes to hit the lunchroom than a co- worker walked in, crinkled his nose, and asked, “Who’s eating fish!!!”
A Wall Street Journal article makes the point for eating sardines in the privacy of my own home. It seems there is a code of etiquette about such things. I was unaware. I like fish and don’t mind the smell – I guess I’m kind of alone on this one!
Apparently the smell of my sardines was so bad that another co-worker made me dig the tin out of the trash. OK, OK . . . I get it! I will never do that again.
