FOOD THEIF AT WORK

Its not funny, but has anything of your that was put in the fridge of the breakroom- TAKEN? I seen an ad on AOL for the Fridge Locker. OMG-So buying this for my daughter. Almost everyday somebody takes something out of her lunch box. Now, she literally just goes OUT somewhere, or LITERALLY HAS TO KEEP A MINI COOLER IN her car. PEOPLE! I SWEAR

  • This happened all the time when I was a teacher.....we were sure who it was but never could prove it. So sad as teachers are "expected"
    to set an example. It didn't matter what you had in your lunch....salad, leftovers, sausages, crackers, pbj sandwich. I posted a note on the cabinet that said, "If you are hungry and have no food, come and ask me before you steal my food". Didn't help!!!!

  • YES! Ive had this issue and work all the time with people stealing my yogurt, fruit cup, pudding, etc. I started leaving a note in there and it did no good. So I bought a lunch bag that zips and put a mini lock on it to where someone cant unzip it. Now my food is always still there. I would recommend that anyways because who knows whos snooping through your food even when they arent taking any.

  • Sad. I saw sandwich bags that made it looked like the bread was all moldy for just this purpose. Those lockers can be pricy, but I bet you can get a regular bike chain cut down and wrap it around a lunchbox (threw the handle so the box won't open) and have that work just as well.

  • Yep this has happened to me and many other of my former co workers. We worked at a clinic. We caught ours though and guess who it was a rich Doctor! Jeesh! I suppose I would be rich too if I didn't have to pay for food.

  • Please don't ever put ex lax into anything. Someone did that to a gym teacher of mine one time and it almost killed her. She had some type of reaction to it and was actually sick for months. She wound up losing about 50 lbs by the time she finally was released from the hospital. The girls could have gone to jail.
