I almost aways brought my lunch to work and it usually required that I heat it up. Typically I would have to put it in the microwave for a minute or so, stir it up and then heat it for another minute. It got to the point where I would balance my food on the little ledge above the break room microwave to stir my food. If I dared to use the convenient table next to me, someone would dash in with their frozen lasagne that requires 14 minutes to defrost.
