This happened early in my career. One morning, one of my coworkers arrived at the office, opened her purse, and dropped an empty package of chips, and an empty soda can in her trashcan. We were curious and one of the nosier coworkers finally asked why.

Coworker: “Oh, my parents were out of town over the weekend and my mother cannot know that I treated myself to chips and a coke. I’m not allowed to have them.”

She was also to be home before ten and not allowed a boyfriend. She was twenty-six years old.
