Peer pressure? Mass hysteria?

Honestly, people never cease to amaze me at how low they'll go.

Years ago one of the junior clerks came in to the office on the monday, and at lunchtime went to her desk drawer where she had a tin of soup. It had been taken, and the only ones that could have done that was one of the staff on the factory floor who work on weekends.

We locked the office door after that

i can understand, Not long ago my boss called said she had gone out and brought some food, and left in the fridge for me. I got here, went to eat and half eaten and put back in the fridge.

i am diabetic and have to eat, i got luckly and found some stuff, well just so happen they caught one of the cleaning crew walking around eating my food, I felt bad when he was fired, But still Do not steal people food.....

as a side note, i have had diabetic meds stolen out of the fridge how i was sitting in the office.....

My name is Kellye. My excuse was that there was an interesting show on tv about a young boy having surgery on his face. It was amazing.

I had so many lumps in my throat when I saw what he had to endure in his surgery.

I agree, and isn't it dangerous to inject insulin into healthy people?

Oh Kellye, there used to be a young girl live opposite me at an old address who i "think" had the same illness as that little boy?. She looked the same and the symptoms sound the same?.

She had to travel to Glasgow in Scotland once a year to have her skull measured along with numerous other tests.

I wonder what happend to her because i don't think she was expected to see adulthood

I don't want to hijack this thread so I will start a new one about Keegan.

While lurking on another site, they discussed lunch thieves. Apparently someone used a very hot and spicy condiment on their sandwich (which they did enjoy at times) and the thief was caught when they heard screams coming from the lunchroom.

You guys are bad! I never thought about the cat poop "tootsie roll" or super hotsauce on a sandwich. I wish I had the guts to do this

You could buy something like this http://www.amazon.com/eBags-Lunch-Co...510266&sr=8-48 and use one of those small suitcase locks to secure it. Surely somebody wouldn't go so far as to "break in" to get your lunch! <or so I would hope>

Another good one I heard on another board--someone was stealing food. So they bought a container of cool whip. Took out the cool whip and replaced with shaving cream. Never had their food stolen again.

I keep my food in a lunchbox with a cooler/ice thingie at my desk. I worked at a place a couple years ago where the fridge was unbelievably nasty. And people did steal food and touch others food. I've been paranoid ever since.

Sad day when the coworkers have to steal other's lunches. Not like they are not getting a paycheck or anything.

That's why I keep my lunch/snacks at my desk!

Maybe get one of those sticky mouse traps sheets to put on the top of your food. But I really do like that sign that someone posted in here!

I so understand!

I'm a nurse and there are lunch theives at the hospital too! I've had my lunch taken, as have others. If I have taken a frozen dinner for lunch or dinner I just usually leave it on the counter in the medication room.

If you sew, you can buy some bias tape to make loops and some metal rings to put into the loops and then use a mini padlock to lock your bag. That's what some at work have resorted to doing.

It's pretty bad when people steal food from their co-workers.

I would also suggest talking to management and having them circulate a memo to the various companies and staff advising them that someone is stealing lunches and that theft will not be tolerated.

I was gonna suggest the same thing. It may be kinda mean, but it's also mean and downright ridiculous that someone would steal others' lunches! My /so has the same problem at his workplace. I don't understand something like that.

People actually steal others lunches? Didn't think that actually went on. What are they thinking!?

I don't know about you but when I pack lunches - I put detail into it so it makes me excited to eat it I would be so mad if someone stole my grub! Is it really that hard for those people to pack their own lunches? Jeesh! Maybe if you did put laxatives or kitty poop tootsies in your lunch just in case, people would learn their lesson - would be cruel but so hilarious!

All just in the name of fun! Besides, it would be smelly too.

I like the cat food sandwich idea. It's not like it'll harm a human.

Ya, that would be a good one! The next day you could put a note on your lunch that said "hope you enjoyed my cat food sandwich, wonder what's on the menu today?"
