Have you ever noticed the response to free food?
I work in a department that hosts a lot of meetings. We have breakfast meetings, lunch meetings, dinner meetings, meetings with coffee and cookies, meetings with coffee and donuts and bagels ...you get the idea.
The leftovers are brought to our break room and someone goes around and tells everyone there are leftovers available.
You would think that these people are starving! They stop whatever they are working on and rush off to get some of whatever it is. One lady always takes 2 donuts or cookies or whatever and says its for her kids, then you see her eating it later. 2 co workers come to work with giant breakfast burritos (2000 calorie monsters!) and will rush off an hour later for free whatever it is.
At least once a month, there is a free meal for staff because we did something good...Again the starving masses act like they have never seen food before. If they get to order individually they order the largest possible size and if it is family style they take large potions.
It's interesting because I know I used to be that way too. Do you see this at your job? I don't see it so much in social situations, like work potlucks or church potlucks which is also interesting.
I wonder what it is about free anything that makes people go a little nuts.
