A Thought for Thursday - Who Stole the Cookie from the Cookie Jar

This weekend a few of my friends were telling stories about instances where their lunch or one of their co-workers lunches were swiped from the office refrigerator. This has to be one of my biggest workplace pet peeves!! Unless you brought what you are about to eat, slowly put the turkey sandwich down and walk away from the fridge!

When I was working at a big firm, we had a lady selling those tubs of cookie dough for her kid. Because you can never really say no to those kinds of things, everybody bought one. About six weeks later when she made the big delivery, our office fridge was stuffed to the brim with cookie dough of all kinds. That night one person forgot their tub of dough and some sneaky auditors who had been working late ate almost the whole carton of cookie dough. Well, the next day when the person discovered this, all hell broke loose in our office. HR was summoned, there were meetings and apologies. It was CRAZY!

I bought this jar of Klaussen pickles two weeks ago and put it in our fridge. I have eaten one of them so far. The other day I was looking for a quick and low-cal snack so I went to grab a pickle. What did I find - there's only one left!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have not said anything as my office is so small and I'd rather not make it that big of a deal. But I'm wondering, have you ever had your lunch snagged? Did you say anything? Thoughts??

  1. A couple of years ago, I forgot a turkey sandwich in the fridge so planned to eat it the next day. The next day when i went to look for it, it was gone. So someone obviously ate it, but they left the other stuff in my lunch bag, like applesauce. I think it's so disgusting that someone would eat a sandwich that I made. They have no idea how clean my house is, and they are eating a sandwich that I have touched with my bare hands. I kind of get that they might take a yogurt or applesauce - but not something made by hand. Gross.
