A snacker in a recession

What the heck is going on around here at work! Let me paint the scenario for you. One lounge, one refrigerator. Some of us may go and get some lunch to have for another day, so we put it in the freezer and note this: WITH OUR NAMES ON IT IN BIG BLACK LETTERS. And some person has the audacity to go in and just steal our food.

So one day, there was a great special on some crabs across the street and I went to get some on my lunch break. I thought I would just put them in the freezer until it was time for me to go home. When 4:00 p.m. came, my food said, "FIND ME.". I just knew I was being punked and somebody was gonna jump from behind the door and say, "girl I'm just messing with ya, here's your crabs." I think I would have even preferred being punked. And it's not just me, there have been others.

Just ask me for it, instead of taking it and then not admitting it and then walking around like they know nothing. Soooooooo, one of the co-workers who was just entirely fed up with whoever has been doing all the stealing made some brownies and he put ex-lax in the brownies and put them in the fridge with his name on it. (I personally couldn't have gone to that extreme) Sure enough, the one who made the brownies, comes into the office and said, "GUESS WHAT!!" I said, "I bet someone got your brownies" He said yeah. I probably shouldn't have but I laughed so hard. I haven't put anything else in there since my crabs were stolen. We need to find a way to put a hidden camera in there. Any other suggestions?

Lovingly yours,


  1. I'm laughing too hard right now to give you another suggestion!

    Maybe I'll come back later!


  2. The cheek of some people stealing your food! I'm with your frind lax in the brownies all the way lol!

  3. LMAO I did that in college with the joint refrigerator. I baked an exlax cake complete with "m&m's"

  4. Thats terrible.....surely the management should intervene? Good luck with it all. Sorry I've not caught up with you for a bit. Liked the post about your son and the coins.I'm sure he wouldn't really have kept the coins....I have a big thing about honesty, hate lies and they always get found out don't they.

  5. I guess that person won't be stealing food anymore! :-)
