NOC Techs - Scavengers of the breakroom

UPDATE: From Whitebread comes the following suggestion; "A tip for your readers: Read the post again, but this time, in Morgan Freeman's voice. You're welcome." I knew there was someone I was trying to channel as I wrote this.


At a set interval, a lone NOC technician ventures out from the dark cave in which the pack works. This scout will pass the usual locations of for food on the way to his or her task in the light. Upon discovery of snack foods, the scout will notify the rest of the pack, which will hurry from their enclosure to feed.

In no time, the entire pack is in the break room, eating, chittering amongst themselves, and storing the temporarily available food for later consumption.

Suddenly a sales person appears, and shoos the NOC technicians from the food obviously intended for something else. Satisfied with the meal, the pack skitters pack to their cave, and returns to work, content.
