If you work in an office, and there are more people than just you working in that office, chances are you have some sort of lunchroom, with a shared refrigerator and microwave. Sometimes, you might see a toaster oven in the mix.
It's not a problem
where I work, from all that I hear, but there are plenty of offices
where people steal food from the lunchroom. Just Google (don't Bing,
unless you want to hear Mr Crosby groan a number for you) "office
lunchroom stolen food" and you will see 49,500 entries on the topic.
Theft prevention tips always mention putting a coating of really hot
pepper sauce on the food and leaving it in an inviting position in the
Kelvinator. For this, you would want to use a Scotch bonnet pepper
sauce. I have a bottle at home of something called "Smokin' Tonsils"
hot sauce, and I am here to tell you, one drop on a porkchop will make
your eyes water and your mouth sizzle and the top of your head commence
to twitchin'. I love it! But that's one way to go. There are other
adulterants that can be added to food for fun effect, and then other
people suggest microcameras and booby traps to catch the thief.
then there is the problem, not of people taking stuff out of the 'frig,
but of people putting stuff in there and leaving it there until the
milk turns to cheese and a peach starts to look like a mongoose. A very
hairy mongoose, at that.
then there is always the guy who takes all the ice out of the ice tray,
and then puts the empty ice tray back in the freezer. So along comes
someone who needs to ice down his Fresca, and they ain't no ice, as Andy Griffith used to say.
may be certain that the people who do this sort of stuff at work are
the people who will try to make a right turn from the center lane on
their way home from work, and try to butt up ahead of you at the deli
counter at the Shop 'n' Bag, and blow smoke in your face as you walk
past the designated smoking area.
You want to get angry, but I go with pity - they have to live with themselves, and that can't be fun!
