Life inside the Port Authority Food Court is decidedly lifeless. Like the office buildings that surround it, most of the people within the confines of this space look as though they have been body-snatched. They lumber around in an aimless search for something to fill them up, though no amount of food can ever extinguish the void in an office worker’s soul.
The 24 hour a day, 7 days a week schedule is both a comfort and a disturbance. The notion that someone would go to said food court anytime outside of the hours of 9 to 5 is a bit depressing, to say the least. But, on the plus side, it provides your bowels with an unconquerable land mine between tastes of “Authority Salads” and “al dente” (read: uncooked) pasta. And, as we all know, there’s nothing better than taking a shit on the company dime.
