Somebody stole the cake - Page 6

post #76 of 96
Thread Starter 
well, since the cake was in a sealed box made for keeping a top wedding cake layer i wasn't worried about contamination, I personally wouldn't put anything in food to make someone sick, you could be sued but really i should be able to leave a box in a fridge at work for 8 hours without theft. I didn't think this post would cause so much trouble, sorry guys

when i need to take a boxed cake somewhere, i generally tape the lid down to the box with shipping tape...works great to keep the lid from smashing the cake, but also creates extra work for the thief which could end up getting them busted. i would probably do the same thing with a lunch bag...wrap that puppy all around with shipping tape! when it's lunch time, all you have to do is take an extra second to cut through the tape.
the early bird may get the worm, indeed, but the second mouse is the one who gets the cheese!

Or how about putting a whole bottle of icing colour into the food so that the thief ends up with stained mouth (and maybe hands).

I'm with those who see a moral difference between offering someone something noxious (ie asking them to eat it) and leaving something noxious in your own private lunchbag (ie asking them NOT to eat it). Good grief, it's the kind of thing certain people do as a practical joke just for the fun of it. I don't know if I would even feel bad if someone came to serious harm because of it. Nor would I have much sympathy if someone sliced an artery while breaking the window to steal my van or electrocuted themselved trying to hotwire it.

icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif I'm sorry, I can't help but laughing, CuteCakeName! I stored my baby's "food" after I pumped at work, too! The guys I worked with all KNEW what it was because I told them!! Not ONE dipped into that thermos bottle!!

Your post is not a problem at all. If I were you, I would file a police report and also with your H.R. And then arrested if caught.

That person stealing needs to be fired if they are found out. What if they boldly walk out the door with a computer or other expensive equipment? Usually someone of that integrity is not a good employee.

Oh, Lordy...DH just gave me a wierd look because I laughed so hard when I read this.

My office is no different from all the others. My cubicle-mate's father was dying with cancer and had been a diabetic for a couple years. I bought a sugar-free fried apple pie from our hometown's Apple Festival and left it in the fridge....big mistake. She went to get it later that day and it was gone. Now you have to stoop pretty dang low to steal a dying man's food. Granted, the thief didn't know the purpose, but isn't that the point? You don't know the contents or the purpose so leave it alone.

The biggest item up for grabs seems to be flavored coffee creamer. You can bring a huge bottle, label it with your name, and by the end of the week you have an empty bottle there. One GUY brings his in, removes the label (so it just looks like a big white bottle), and writes *breastmilk* on it. No one touches it.

Whoever have sympathy for this thief is also a thief.. it takes one to know one.. really !!! Since when is stealing something from someone acceptable ? never is, never was and never will be.. and there is nothing wrong with revenge also as long as it is done equally. thumbs_up.gif

I'm sure normal people here will agree that putting hair in a sandwich for the thief to eat is perfectly OK !!! Please do it...

I once injected bathroon cleaner into a fruit since the stupid thief kept stealing my food. It has never happened again.. simple solution that works, at least to the amuzement of the victim of the thief.. icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif ;- and who care how the thief feels after that !!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif if it didn't belong to him, then why did he take it ? thumbs_up.gif

I found out in bussiness law when I was in business school that if a person is tresspassing on your land, falls into a gopher hole and breaks a leg that person can sue you. It would be satisfiying to get back at whoever took it, but it wouldn't be right.

I agree, but then you can countersue them for tresspassing and damaging of property (because they had to get in somehow) Worse case scenario you can say they ruined your landscaping. LOL. Just trying to make you smile. icon_smile.gif

my hubby works for a big insurance company. (healthcare) and they have a community fridge for each sector. so like 20-30 share. I sent his lunch and it would get stolen. I was getting pissed... one day I couldnt find my hubbys thermos. So I grabbed our 2 1/2 year olds Bob the Builder thermos that we used on picnics.our son wasnt happy about it, but he thought it was cool that daddy was borrowing it after I explained. hubby came home and told me it was missing. so I called his boss and she relayed it to security. I sent my hubby with a note for the fridge. Security emailed the entire building with it being theft and it would be dealt with accordingly. The note hubby stuck to the fridge said "to the thief: you made a 2 year old cry about his bob the builder thermos. Hope my lunch was enjoyable. Hope it makes u smile to know you made a 2 yr old cry."

It was returned the next day.

His boss told us the same had happened to her with these yummy caramel layers. She said the next day she pulled off the top layer. Put tobasco and and something else nasty (I think garlic salt) in there. she didnt have a issue after those were stolen.

OMG! I made some cupcakes for a teacher, tacked them to her door in a PLAIN brown paper bag. She came back a few hours later to find they were gone. This is a college, and offices aren't really near classrooms. She has had presents left near her office, important things and it is the cupcakes that get stolen!!

What made me most mad is they left the note I tacked as well. I put the tack through the bag and note. UHHH. and I even had a little questionaire with things like too much khalua, just right coffee, to little cayenne?

The least they could do is return the survey!

The audacity some people have.

It seems as though many people feel that stealing food isn't stealing. They take your lunch, so what?

As a child I stole food myself, and feel no guilt for it. An apple off a display, a hardboiled egg from that pile. If I hadn't, I wouldn't have grown up. I never took anyone's entire bunch of food, I knew that gnawing feeling in the belly myself too much to do that.

However, I most certainly would not steal food now!
