Hey there, you working people of San Francisco (and we understand there are still a few of you left)! Are you afraid to leave your office on your break, out of concern for stepping on a used needle or some unspeakable piece of filth? And the map of the “wasteland” (so to speak) isn’t up-to-date, so if you go out you’re on your own…

Well, once upon a time your friendly employer addressed your dilemma by offering a workplace cafeteria. Good food, affordably priced, and convenient. Alas, this quaint and modest benefit is soon to be, if certain San Francisco supervisors get their way, against the law.

New city tech workers dreaming of dining in workplace cafeterias may soon face a harsh reality — going outside.

Two city legislators on Tuesday are expected to announce legislation banning on-site workplace cafeterias in an effort to promote and support local restaurants.

You thought you could escape the grasping hands of government micromanagement? You fool! BWAHAHAHAHA!

    First, they came for the plastic straws, and I did not speak out, because I don’t usually use straws.

    Then, they came for the free lunches, and I did not speak out, because I don’t get free lunches…

    How long is the city supervisor’s lunch break? And how much wealth does each have? This is the flip side to politicians exempting themselves from laws. Eg, I’m willing to pay a higher gas tax, so should you be.
