The Slice

People are swell

North Idaho's Marge McNall was a workplace supervisor in Seattle a few years ago when abuse of the office fridge became a nagging problem.

One of the people working there had filled the freezer compartment with the overflow from his freezer at home. He was not accessing this stuff for workplace lunches or anything. He was just using the office fridge as his personal freezer annex.

McNall finally had to post a warning that the refrigerator was going to be cleaned out. She did this several days in advance. But the Freezer Hog ignored the notice.

So McNall went ahead and cleaned out the fridge, including the freezer.

The Freezer Hog went ape and fireworks ensued -- which everyone working there heard. But McNall stood her ground.

After the Freezer Hog stormed out of the place, the rest of the employees gave McNall a standing ovation.
