Food'n'drink Working life


Outrage in the office. A note at the scene of the crime, the fridge:

Post-It note

Further investigation revealed that in fact two victims had had their yoghurt go missing. It seems there is a serial yoghurt thief among us.

I went to my company’s Los Angeles office a year or so ago and got talking to the company’s security manager. They had a seriel lunch thief in their midst and had secretly installed a CCTV camera.

They were checking the tape everyday to ensure that all those that “took from the fridge” had in fact “deposited in the fridge that morning”

After a few days, they had narrowed their suspicions down to three staff members…

I had to laugh, they were taking it sooooo seriously!

Yeah, someone in our office was repeatedly swiping the Weetbix. We are looking for a cereal offender. (apologies to the Two Ronnies).

All you need is a petty cash tin as a lunchbox … things will cool just fine, but can’t be gotten to … and
it sure sends a message … :)

I had my pizza stolen at work once and was really hungry the rest of the day. The boss apologized–I was hoping he’d buy me a new pizza. No such luck. Next time I bought pizza, I took a bite out of every piece before I put it in the fridge. I also stuck it in a large paper bag, stapled it shut, wrote my name on it and the fact that I had taken a bite out of every piece. Overkill, yes, but my pizza was there when I wanted it. People laughed at me, shook their heads. Darn pizza thieves….

Amy, That didn’t help me when a big carrot cake with cream cheese frosting muffin went missing. I had saved it for the following morning for breakfast. But I had ALSO EATEN a big bite out of it in the afternoon with the munchies hit. Didn’t stop someone from taking it, eating it and dumping the box in the trash! Even with a bite out of it. I found out it was our Department HEAD!!!

PS Daniel, what happened to the photo of the frig???
