I just found out that one of my co-workers is storing her breast milk in our office refrigerator. This grosses me out. I think management should require her to bring in a small cooler or other contraption to store the stuff during the day, but my supervisor is a woman and is taking my co-worker’s side. I don’t want to escalate this by going to human resources, but I would also like to use the refrigerator again. What can I do?

Grow up. Breast-feeding is a fact of life and nursing moms deserve a break from immature dolts who want to pretend breast-feeding does not exist. Whatever your hang up is about this – get over it. Either that or start bringing lunches to work that do not need to be kept cold.
Personally, I would rather have twenty co-workers store some breast milk in the office refrigerator than just one person store leftover Tuna Surprise. Readers – what do you think about what’s stored in the refrigerator at work?
