The reason a lone cookie has sat in the kitchen of a midsized software company is because no one wants to be that person to eat it, a new poll confirms.

The poll of the 35 members of the office found an overwhelming 33 of them saying they didn’t want to be “that asshole” to eat the last cookie, though at least 29 of them have said they are eyeing the cookie. Another respondent listed dietary reasons for not eating the cookie and another is waiting until later in the afternoon and planning to break it in half, to not look like a total asshole.

As of lunchtime Wednesday, the cookie has sat by itself for at least two and half hours.
