If you get a spoon and a place in the cafeteria WOW! you are one lucky person that day. Where are the spoons? It is a usual seen in the cafeteria where you see a group of people around a pillar waiting for spoons. Survival of the fittest, is the rule here. If you are good in fighting in a crowd then yes, you are the one who could get spoon. And if you are not fit enough to fight in the crowd, you may have to wait for the next turn. Most of the time you will have to wait for the spoons or for a table or for a chair to have lunch. And all these time you wait for the spoon your project pays for it. So do not worry it’s not your personal time that you are wasting. You are paid to waste time. This is a fact. But then are you paid to wait for the spoon? Why is that we are not noticing this great waste of time which happens most of the day. The money spend waiting for a spoon or a table you could buy many spoons. It is heard that there are spoons purchased every now and then, But now it’s time to investigate where it is going. Is it been taken home with the lunchboxes unknowingly? If that is the case it is also brought back. I do not think there would be any employee who would wish to keep a canteen spoon at home. Is it thrown along with the waste? Then there should be a magnet kept to filter before it goes to the waste bin. The fun part is In the last Feast Syntillations have conducted 237 spoons of the vendor is missing. This is a pure mismanagement. I think the spoons are going with the waste.
Whatever is the case if investigation is done or not, it is really important to make sure that there are enough spoons, chairs and tables in the cafeteria so that time is not wasted. We have some 500 chairs in the cafeteria. So we should have at least 1500 spoons half always goes for washing. Most of the people would want more than one to share their dishes with their friends.
If nothing is working, I would advice each employee to bring one spoon each from home. Also a mat to sit and have.
