Somebody stole the cake - Page 4

post #46 of 96
I certainly hope they do catch them. And you know, I'd like to sit that person down and explain to them how they ruined something very special for many people. You know, the cake gave them pleasure for a few minutes, but the hurt they caused to several people will last a lot longer. Not that they'd care, but sometimes people who do mean things actually do care when they are 'busted out' about something and called to the carpet. People will do and say things they wouldn't normally when they feel they have some anonymity. Which is why I ignore a lot of stupid comments that are made! thumbs_up.gif

These stories come as no surprise to me. People today have an "If it's free, it's for me" attitude. And if it's sitting still, and nobody is looking, they think it's free.

Someone at work used to steal lunches all the time, particularly my friend, David's. One day he deliberately put a cat food sandwich in a lunch bag, with his name on it. Of course, it was stolen. The next day, the note read:

"Thank you for eating my lunch yesterday. I hope you enjoyed the cat food sandwich. May your coat glisten and your eyes shine. And may you get the unabating urge to scratch up your furniture and puke hairballs all over your bed. Signed - David."

Although the lunches continued to be stolen (yes, the perp was found to be the junkie brother of one of the bosses), David's was never touched again.

Please, oh please, do not put anything into your food. If you use something like Ex-Lax and the constant diarrhea could make the person lose potassium and have a heart attack. Now, how funny is that?

Why would you bring anything to work and put it into a "common refrigerator"? Are you all not concerned with cross-contamination? Bring foods which can be kept in an insulated container at your desk. You would not put your food in the hallway; why would you put it into a nasty-never-cleaned-out-company-refrigerator?

If you are baking for the public, then you should know that e-coli lives in coffee cups which are never washed, but rinsed out and called, "clean". The sink in a common area is full of Listeria because everyone pours their coffee down the drain (yes, even those with the runny noses and coughs)... and you want to share your food in the same container (i.e., refrigerator)?

Sorry about your cake, but I would never, ever leave anything out of my sight at work... take $89.00 and get yourself a small dorm room fridge and put it in your work area (with a lock) or the common area, if that is all that is available, but lock it. You will never be sorry.

I wasn't going to respond because I don't like to stir up trouble, but now that two comments have been made specifically pointing out what I said, I feel like I'd just like to defend myself a little. If you are allergic to peanuts and you steal my lunch and eat a sandwich that you don't realize has peanut butter in it, am I going to jail? Am I morally responsible for whatever happens to you? And we're not talking about 8 pounds of Exlax... cut me some slack. I'm not a murderer or a terrorist, and I can assure you I don't find heart attacks funny in the least. But please take a step into the real world and realize that if you steal something and ingest it, that is the risk you run. You are responsible for your own actions.

I get sick of hearing of how "bad" prisoners have it in jail. Gosh, no cable TV, blah blah blah. Ya know how to avoid the "bad" environment? DON'T DO SOMETHING THAT SENDS YOU TO JAIL!!!!! icon_eek.gif It's a big no-brainer to me!

Dont' want to get sick on someone else's food? DON'T STEAL OTHER PEOPLE'S FOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ditto to Melvira and indydebi!!!!! If it isn't yours leave it alone of pay the consequences! I'm so tired of people being made out the "bad guy" for other peoples actions. My ex father-in-law worked for the federal prision system for 25 years and those prisoners ate better then we did. They even built a swimming pool for those unfortunate prisoners. I certainly didn't have a swimming pool in my back yard.

My 16 year old is sitting here reminding me how she stopped her gum from being stolen from her gym locker. She'd unwrap the gum, wipe it on the floor a few times, coat it with salt and garlic salt, rewrap it and put it in her gym locker.

It was only stolen ONCE after that! icon_rolleyes.gif

It's sad our society has gotten to this point. Even supposedly honest people will steal something if the opportunity presents itself, and if they think they can get away with it.

My husband and I talk fairly often about integrity, or really, the lack of integrity these days. Our family is very involved in Boy Scouts, all the guys are Eagle scouts (including our son) my husband is a scoutmaster, and my father in law was a scout leader for over 60 years when he passed away. My husband talks pretty often to the scouts about being brave enough to do the right thing. This is the definition of integrity he tells the scouts:
"Integrity is being honest and doing the right thing, even when no one is watching and even if you know you'll never get caught."

I agree with indydebi and Melvira, too.

You have to be kidding. icon_surprised.gif STOLE a cake. What an insensitive idiot. To me , if he got sick from something that he stole, good for him.
So sorry for you, although who would have thought. More sorry for the couple.

You should not be liable if someone stole your lunch! That is there problem. They stole they have to pay the consequences! (I'm sure that is not how the law works but...) I love it when people get revenge! Serves the thieves right!!!!

You know, this discussion makes me think of the scene in Liar Liar where the secretary says her friend had someone break into her house and accidentally cut himself with a butcher knife, then turned around and sued the victim for ten thousand dollars. She said, "Now I ask you, is that justice?" and Jim, as a lawyer says, "NO... I'd have gotten him twenty." Doesn't that just describe who we are as a society today? We hope, and often believe that most people are above that, but you'd be shocked what 'honest' people will do when they think they won't be caught. I know I've done things in my past that make me look back and say, "Oh Mel... that wasn't right... you know better than that!!"
