Day 248: Handed Over My Leftovers

Today I had to take an interviewing candidate along with me for my work day so that he could get a feeling as to what a day in the field here at ZocDoc is like.  After one of my appointments, we had just enough time to grab a quick bite to eat before the appointment that I had right after.  I looked up and saw one of my favorite (and horrible for me) restaurants...Buffalo Wild Wings.  I have been trying to eat less lately, but I was super hungry, so I ordered 12 boneless wings.  I think my eyes were bigger than my stomach because I didn't even come close to finishing my meal.  It was only midday, I didn't have a refrigerator nearby, and I wasn't sure I could drive around all day with buffalo wings in my car without me getting queasy.  However, I didn't want a bunch of perfectly good food to go to waste.  So today, for my random act of kindness, I handed over my leftovers to a person who was holding a sign that said they were hungry.  I have really made it a point not to waste any food because I just think about all the people out there who are struggling just to get a meal.
