During a marathon weekend at work, the partner bought us pizza to eat in a conference room. We are slobs; we never cleaned up.
Three days later, we all met in the same conference room and saw that the pizza was still sitting out. "Would you give me $100 to eat a slice?" I jokingly asked. Then, the same partner who bought the pizza in the first place pulled out a $20 from his wallet and put it down on the table.
Did I hold out for my $100? Of course not. I'm no better than 5-year-olds in the Kids Marshmallow Experiment so I took the offer! (Also, the night before I had turned down an offer of $20 to swallow a whole mouthful of BBQ sauce).

I was told I couldn't heat it up and had to eat the entire slice! So it ended up like this:
Despite tasting pretty gross, I didn't get sick! And I got $20! Don't tell HR :)
