Today, it's Halloween and my boss changed his mind at the last minute, telling us we're no longer allowed to carve pumpkins in our lunch hour because, "It would be too distracting". What are we supposed to do with 12 pumpkins now? FML

You could throw them at your boss... Disclaimer: All advice offered by the author of this comment is done so in fun, the author takes no responsibility for the consequences of following his advice.

Have you never heard of a Pumpkin Fight? It's basically like a water balloon fight, but with more concussions and broken bones. Easy way to get out of work sick.

Make the pumpkins into pie?

Smashing Pumpkins

Pumpkin pie, pumpkin cheesecake, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin cake. Either that, or you can attempt pumpkin bowling, which is even less (or more) fun.

I vote for pumpkin bowling with the boss' house/car as the pins.

Take them home and carve them like normal people. Why is this even an FML - who even gets to carve pumpkins at the workplace? It's messy and smelly.

I'm not even sure why he allowed it in the first place..sounds messy. A small Halloween party with food/treats sounds more appropriate for a work setting.

Do the pumpkins have to stay at work? Each of you could take a pumpkin and carve them at home. I can see your bosses reasoning though. We carved 1 pumpkin at my work, I work at a daycare and it was for the kids, and it was still a hectic mess. 12 pumpkins would be way worse.

Your boss can't tell you what to do on your lunch break? It's a 'break' if you want to carve pumpkins he has no say in that...

Well, yeah, they can do it at home or something, but the boss can certainly prohibit them from doing it on company premises (which is what it sounds like happened).

Fair call didn't think of it like that

Lunch is your personal time. U can do whatever you want

Comment #9 sounds familiar to this one.........
