Trying to do something nice for your colleagues to make their lives easier sometimes isn’t worth it. In some cases, it might backfire, and you will have wasted your time.
They might not even notice your kind efforts! In this instance, a co-worker got laughed at and mocked for trying to do something thoughtful. She is surprised at how strange her colleagues found her gesture.
TikToker Aubrey (@aubreyhopeanderson) shares her crazy workplace scenario in this video when she decides to do something kind for her collages and put the leftover pizza in the fridge. Unfortunately, it backfires.
Aubrey has only been at her workplace for 3 and a half months and has never had any strange experiences with her colleagues up until now.
The Company Bought Everyone Pizza

Her manager bought everyone pizza, which Aubrey thought was “super super nice”. All of the colleagues sat and ate as much of the pizza as they could at lunchtime.
When an hour and a half had passed and the pizza was still sitting out getting warm, Aubrey decided to consolidate all of the leftover pizza and put it in the fridge.
Aubrey assumed this would be a good thing to do to keep it fresh, seeing as everyone was finished.
She Did Something Nice for Her Colleagues
After consolidating all of the slices into one box and throwing the other two boxes away, Aubrey continued to pursue her smart idea of putting the leftover food in the fridge.
Someone Called Her Out
Two hours after Aubrey put the pizza in the fridge, she heard someone walk out of the break room and say “Seriously?! Who puts the pizza in the fridge?”.
To her colleague’s surprise, everyone was trying to figure out (out loud to one another) who put the pizza in the fridge!
She Didn’t Admit It
Due to everyone making a big fuss and making it seem like putting leftover pizza in the fridge was a crazy idea, Aubrey didn’t own up to the fact that she did it.
She felt slightly embarrassed and didn’t want to tell the team that she made this “crazy” mistake. To Aubrey, putting pizza in the fridge to conserve it is normal. But her colleagues do not seem to think the same.
Kicking up a Fuss for No Reason
Considering the co-workers knew it was one of the team members that put the pizza in the fridge, Aubrey questions why they would kick up such a fuss and have an attitude.
It is obvious someone would feel ashamed or embarrassed after they made such a big deal out of it and thought that whoever puts the pizza in the fridge is strange.
But to Aubrey, not putting leftover pizza in the fridge is what’s strange! The opposing preference seems to irk both the colleagues and Aubrey, leaving her feeling a bit embarrassed for something she had always done.
She questions why she even bothered making a nice gesture if they are going to make someone feel bad.
Aubrey questions whether the co-worker that made the remark wanted a fight or to make the person look stupid, which is bizarre, considering that it was a kind and normal gesture to make.
Who Is Wrong?
Now Aubrey’s left wondering – is she the odd one out, or are her coworkers the ones being strange for not putting leftover pizza in the fridge? It seems like such a basic way to keep food fresh.
In light of this, Aubrey’s thinking twice about doing similar food-related favors for her coworkers in the future. It’s tough to guess what they might consider normal or bizarre.
Wrapping up her video, Aubrey simply states that putting food in the fridge is the right thing to do for cleanliness.
