I would casually watch for someone who can't make eye contact with you usually when someone has done something like that even if they don't realize it they can't look at you or become very uncomfortable in your presence. Keep an eye out for someone who had a casual work relationship with you suddenly avoiding you. Some people no longer have a concience. icon_sad.gif

Remember the Seinfeld episode in which Elaine ate someone's cake from the work refrigerator? It had been purchased at an auction and was from some royal wedding (or something like that). It was many years old. She tried to replace it with Entenmann's. I don't remember the outcome, but it reminds me of this situation. Shame on the cake thief.

I can't believe people! If it isn't yours, then don't touch it!!!

People are just rude and who gave this person the right to help themselves to the cake???

Sorry this happened.... : (
I would rather skip a meal for some dessert!

Oh I love that Seinfeld.
It was her bosses cake. He said he would not punish her because the havoc the cake would reek on her digestive system was punishment enough!

OMG that is horrible. Some people have no shame!

I love the idea about the note on the fridge saying the cake was inedible.....I would love to see the person's reaction when they saw it.

I loved the ex-lax in the brownies story too! LOL.....I was a teacher before I had my daughter and you couldn't leave anything in the teacher's lounge fridge.....TEACHERS! Most of us bought mini-fridges to keep in our rooms. SO sad.

Keep us updated on what happens!

Chutzpah, I'm hoping that was a rhetorical question. LOL There's not enough bandwidth for us to go THERE!
So sorry about the cake. Very sad.

Theft of the lunchroom 'frig is VERY common. One lady said she'd never put anything in the frig unless it was taped AND stapled shut. She brought in some leftover Chinese one day and someone went in and ate all the meat out of it!! icon_surprised.gif

Hubby worked at a place where it was common knowledge that one guy would peek in all the lunch bags and take whatever he wanted. his logic was "well, they left it in there!" Yes, he was caught frequently, told about it, and it did no good. Because ......

..... at most of the places we've worked at, management tends to take the attitude of "it's just lunch thefts ... it's not like it's something important or valuable" and wouldn't really do anything about it.

One lady I worked with a long time ago would put a note on her lunch that said "I spit in my food". Another lady put a note on her lunch that said "Property of (name of Office VP)".

Maybe a bio-hazard warning would deter the thiefs.

An incident from years ago ... a young female coworker had to bring a urine sample to her doctor. The appt. wasn't until the afternoon, so she put it in a jar, put the jar in a paper bag, stapled it shut and wrote "DO NOT OPEN" on the bag and stuck it in the fridge - someone pulled open the bag anyway. Guess they got a shock.
...will there be cake?

And that's exactly why I don't bring cakes to work and put them in the frig that are for my co-workers.

I think it's the same where ever you work. People are unbelievable at things they do. Last year I brought in a grilled hamburger and hot dog for lunch and put it in the refrigerator until lunch time. Well don't you know it was gone! I was so mad. Mad enough that at the next managers meeting I stood right up and told our CEO and President that we have thieves amoung us because someone stole my lunch. They were horified at the situation and asked what I had brought. I told them and would you believe it was my president!!! He threw it out on me because he was in a cleaning mood.

Just goes to show you it could be anyone.

Sorry this happened but I'm sure they will enjoy a fresh cake just as much.

I am so sad to hear about what happened. The nerve of this individual to take something that does not belong to him or her. Maybe they never heard of the commandment Thou shalt not steal.

My dad use to work at a truss company, and he would take a can of soda with him every day to have with his lunch.....and every day it wouldn't be there when it was lunch time. It made him really mad, and we would tell him "it's just a soda" to which he replied, "it's the principle of the matter."

So, he starting taking a permanent marking and putting a big dot on the bottom of the can. Pretty soon, he noticed someone taking a big swig out of a soda can with a fat dot on the bottom! He confronted him and the guy was so embarrassed. He didn't steal from dad anymore.

In your case it was a cake, and I don't know what compels people to do the things they do!

At my old hotel, a co-worker of mine threw me a little surprise birthday party, and used someone's top tier. icon_surprised.gif She was like "I thought it was extra" because it was still in the cooler that Monday, the MOB hadn't picked it up yet. Whoops.

I have been stolen from in every way possible. Mostly by employees. My favorite was the "Great Clinique Heist". Clinique was having a meeting at my hotel, and we stored a ton of boxes of makeup in a closet for them. Sometime, in the middle of the night, someone went through all the boxes, picked out the products that they wanted, makeup brushes, etc. I'm talkin THOUSANDS of dollars of makeup stolen.

One of my female PREGNANT employees was sneaking into my office and stealing my credit cards and using them. At the Columbus Day sale she bought a mountain of stuff at macy's, then later spent $900 on Calvin Klein Jeans and $1300 in the toddler boys dept. at Lord and Taylor. Her roomate, another employee of mine, turned her in, and she was arrested, sent back to Columbia.
