post #31 of 96
in regards to the can of soda being taken; another option that would have been good\\fun to do along with the dot (bit of self revenge lol) was to line the top of the soda can with anbesol icon_wink.gif

gal at hubby's old old office did that to a coworker's coffee cup lol

Why don't you write a heartbreaking letter about how special that cake and figurine were, and send it out to every employee? Or post signs or something? I bet you someone would rat the thief out.

I don't know how people who do that stuff can live with themselves. I can't even live with myself when my co-worker gives me rides to work (just had surgery) and refuses to take any gas money.

Just this week at work we had our monthly birthday cake and we keep it on a vacant desk that is just off the common walkway. At 9:00 in the morning the cake was half gone because random people just kept helping themselves. Man the cojones on those people!

The worst thing in my experience was at a former job. Our office was 24/7. We had new-hire classes going on in the basement for a shift that was like 4p-12a. The basement wasn't heavily trafficked during those hours. The instructor fell in the hallway while going to make copies. She had a concussion, and couldn't stand up, and left bloody handprints on the floors and walls as she tried to get herself up...None of the 20-something kids ever snuck out to get a pop or anything. So...about a month or so later she returned to work. I had subbed for her class while she was out. For her return, we planned a huge potluck/party for her. Some @$%&$!#^!@ STOLE her 6 foot party sub. How in the world do you do that???!!!! I really hope (like PP said) that REALLY bad Karma came back on that person. It was just EVIL. The next day, I made up my famous crab puffs and chicken fried rice for the whole group, not knowing they'd already ordered pizza icon_lol.gif

I like my current company's take on lunch thefts. It's theft, plain and simple. If you are caught/proven to steal, you will be terminated.

Sorry for the long post...

When we had a problem with lunch theives back when I worked the old 'office 9-5' I fixed it quickly. One little ol' foil pan of Ex-lax brownies was all it took. It became painfully obvious who had done it, and that person was publicly humiliated. Not to mention they were afraid to eat anything out of the fridge again!

But speaking of lows... at that same office, we were forbidden from using ice trays after a disgruntled employee filled one with broken glass!! Can you imagine? How sick did that person have to be? I mean, working there wasn't that bad.

There used to be a doctor at the clinic I work in who would eat people's lunches out of the fridge. A DOCTOR! Like he couldn't afford lunch. They busted him one day, and he is still known for it, years after he left.

When my daughter was a baby I continued to breastfeed after I went back to work, so I had to pump. I stored my bottles in a little insulated zippered bag and brought it home each day... imagine my surprise when I discovered that someone had actually stolen my breastmilk one day! That one was pretty awkward to bring up to the guys in Loss Prevention! I still wonder who it might have been and what on earth they did with it. Ewwww...
Well, everyone else had such cute cake names, and I wanted one too...

Just a word of caution: NEVER, NEVER, NEVER tamper with food - even food you bring in yourself. It may be a joke to you, but if someone gets sick (yes, even if they shouldn't have been eating it in the first place) you are liable and can be prosecuted! It is a criminal offense to tamper with food in such a way.

Besides, putting a lot of ex-lax in someones food can make them violently ill, and could even lead to death. Nobody deserves to die over a brownie.

Sorry, but I had to put that out there.

Carry on.

That is so sad that someone would steal another person's wedding cake. And especially at your place of employment. It's pathetic really!

thanks everyone for the sympathy, I didn't find out who did the deed but an ec all email went out about stealing at work. there are about 700 people who work in this building, and while the security guards did keep an eye out they didn't see anything, but I am friendly with the janitorial ladies and one of them found the big red box, empty in the trash so someone either ate themselves sick or put the cake into a lunchbox or somthing, and then notes were pasted to all the fridge doors about the pupose of the stolen cake so I hope they feel guilty. We have had problems with fridge theft here before, but this was low. thanks guys,

I doubt they would even feel bad about the cake.
Some people have no morals.

In addition

I worked at a small cafe and we received an order on delivery for a restaurant across town. Simular name...just a mix up unloading the truck.
Anyway after it was all put in the freezer the manager found the mistake like 5 hours later. he told everyone working that evening to take what they wanted from the boxes it wasnt ours and it was their loss. I swear the box contained hams, turkey breast and whole turkeys.

I quit after seeing this. Never gave a reason why just quit.

He could have called the restaurant someone would have picked up the missing delivery.

I have no respect for him, cant stand to see him out and about in town.

My husband works for a large home improvement store and he fixed the problem by writing 'stool sample' on his lunch bag LOL

. . . well, I'm glad "something" was done . . . but I'm pretty sure that anyone that would do this isn't going to feel guilty about it . . . they knew it was "wrong" in the first place . . . too bad they weren't caught on tape . . .

it would be nice if the thief had been caught on tape, but this is a secure building, i work at an insurance company and beleive or not cameras are a security risk because people's insurance info could be caught on tape, we are not even allowed to bring in cell phones because someone could take a photo of a SSN card or other info. i work in a smaller contracted department and not out in the general cubicle area but there has been a mass hiring in anticipation of the rush the end of the year causes at inusrance companies and with the new hires came a rash of thefts, and not just food out of the breakroom. The security guards are keeping a closer watch, if and when someone gets caught heads will roll...
