Dear Messy Eaters,

We have noticed you leave quite the mess at the lunch tables when the bell rings. Our cafeteria is not your kitchen at home. So we would like to address this problem and finally lay it to rest. Yes, lunch is supposed to be a time to relax, eat, and be with your friends, but that does not mean that you can act like you are at home.

Wrappers are left scattered across tables and floors, food crumbs and chunks are left to be cleaned by someone else. Our amazing janitors are not your personal maids. They are not here to personally clean each individual student’s lunch mess. By now, especially because you are in high school, you should know not to act like a child in the lunchroom. Some of you act as if you have forgotten your age. There is no need to yell and be crazy at lunch; that is how you get your privileges taken away. We have seen food thrown across the table, crazy concoctions made thinking it would be a funny joke, and we have even seen you watch food fall to the floor then turn away and act like it was not yours. Please- when you leave that cafeteria, the tables should not look like a tornado came through. Nobody wants to clean up leftover food.

The teachers and administration should not have to tell you to go back and pick up your trash before you leave. They have trash cans at each table for a reason- put your trash in it. You may think that the one tray you left behind was not a big deal. However, once everyone has cleared the room and moved on to their next class, you will see that maybe twenty or thirty other people thought that same thing. We should not try to make the janitorial staff’s lives harder. I am sure you would not want to have to clean up the mess of everyone in your house, so please fix yourselves and learn how to eat and act properly at lunch.

Sincerely,

Anyone who has to eat lunch with you.

P.S. Absolutely no one wants to sit next to someone who does not know how to eat.
