Good definition,REMI! During 40+ years of work, I found it to be a regular occurrence- probably happening somewhere right now!

It happens to all of us at least once during our working life!

Happened with dip I brought in. Caught him in the act. Wouldn't be so bad if he wasn't double-dipping. And didn't have really poor oral hygiene. And I wasn't sure that it was his first offense and I had actually eaten the dip after him at some point. Yuck!
