One of the best parts of having roommates is the amount of random food you can find in the pantry and refrigerator. Someone always has something delicious that you can sneak a bite from, or leftovers that you can convince them they ate when they came home wasted from that work happy hour. That being said, there are some foods that can be questionable and you should consider carefully before consuming.
- Milk - Sometimes your roommate might be lactose intolerant and put poorly marked soy milk in the fridge. Gross. How inconsiderate.
- Chinese Food - Leftover Chinese food rarely looks appetizing, but it's even scarier when you don't know what it was supposed to be originally. Is that sweet and sour chicken with broccoli, or is orange chicken and poisonous fungi? Fortune cookie says, "Fortune does not favor the bold."
- That Thing in the Tupperware - The homemade cousin of Chinese food, that thing in the Tupperware is a real hit or miss gamble. Maybe it's the awesome chili your roommate's mom makes. Maybe your roommate who can't cook made the turnip, jalapeño, spaghetti sauce, and undercooked chicken dish again. This is why I wanted everyone to label their food.
- Beer - There used to be a time that your only concern was a roommate who had a serious taste for Milwaukee's Best. Now every time I pull out a bottle of beer I'm afraid that it's been tampered with and filled with Smirnoff Ice. Don't ice me, bro. Not like that.
