Day 248: Handed Over My Leftovers
Today I had to take an interviewing candidate along with me for my work day so that he could get a feeling as to what a day in the field here at ZocDoc is like. After one of my appointments, we had just enough time to grab a quick bite to eat before the appointment that I had right after. I looked up and saw one of my favorite (and horrible for me) restaurants...Buffalo Wild Wings. I have been trying to eat less lately, but I was super hungry, so I ordered 12 boneless wings. I think my eyes were bigger than my stomach because I didn't even come close to finishing my meal. It was only midday, I didn't have a refrigerator nearby, and I wasn't sure I could drive around all day with buffalo wings in my car without me getting queasy. However, I didn't want a bunch of perfectly good food to go to waste. So today, for my random act of kindness, I handed over my leftovers to a person who was holding a sign that said they were hungry. I have really made it a point not to waste any food because I just think about all the people out there who are struggling just to get a meal.
