Well I just caught someone pilfering what I bring for myself out of our department refrigerator.
Some factory floor drone decided to help themselves to my breakfast fixings.
Last week a new jar of chip dip disappeared from one of my subordinates and she was fighting mad over it.

Well now I KNOW who the guilty party is.
I'm having a little talk with the manufacturing supervisor this morning.
And she's NOT one to tangle with if you work for her.
I will express my displeasure at HER people entering my closed department.
Mad

You need a batch of some super-hot dip to put in the fridge. You know the kind, so hot you need OC sprayed in your mouth to cool it after you take a taste.

It's a balance with the ones who'll leave things there until EPA shows up. Eek

My daughter works in a hospital in AL and has invoked the one-week rule in their small-ish department fridge that perpetually had no room. Each week she puts different-colored stickers on everything with the date on it, if still there a week later out it goes. Now they have room for actual items being used and (pretty much) everybody has gone along.

My only question was if she was washing out the containers. She looked at me sideways and said "No, if they don't care enough to eat it in a week+ I figure they don't want the container either and toss the whole thing!"

I love that girl.

Strange new trend at work. Food in the company fridge with names. Yesterday I had a tuna salad sandwich named Kevin.

A guy where I work once sent a group email rant when someone ate the deviled egg he had been saving. I get being miffed, but this email contained venom that seemed better calibrated for a much more serious crime.

Had a meeting over the floor crew.
Terminable offense now to leave the floor without permission of a supervisor.
AND they are not to enter the technology departments.

Thief should be tossed out the front door, fired, with the entire employ standing outside to watch him leave, the line of shame.

Well, what you need to do is cook up some new breakfast fixings. Then leave them sit out at room temp for a good 12 hours. Then bring to work and let him at 'em.

Had one person who would take meat out of sandwiches. Not all of it, just a few slices.

Had a receptionist who stole my Snapple once. After that I threw her stuff out every time I saw it in the fridge. Couldn't complain because she was screwing three partners.

I'm responsible for the fridges at my office. We have two fridges shared by 150+ people and some folks will bring a weeks worth of food on Monday. I'm not talking five lean cuisines but an entire roast chicken and an apple pie. I empty them once a month. I try to be considerate but people are assholes. I feel bad about tossing nice glass containers but if two emails and a sign on the fridge aren't enough notice I can't help ya.

Thanks for sharing. It helps me appreciate being self employed.
Using a security camera might be an idea, followed by social media shaming if allowed.

We used to handle these things through physical violence when I was in college. I went to an all male university and the main thing stolen was beer. The physical approach worked well for us.

If you have a office or desk, get one of these and put in there and secure your food and drinks.

Yeah, society teaches this. If someone has it, they should give it to you.

Same thing happened many years ago. Got out of Tech school and started a job for the DOD.

We all put our lunches in a Fridge in the lunch room. Everyday a different person would get his lunch stolen.

A friend of mine spiked some cookies with Exlax.

When his lunch got stolen, he told everybody to be on the lookout for someone with the trots.

He was taken before the supervisors and warned that the next time he would be fired for spiking his food.

Justice??

Not to worry. Tupperware containers multiply at night.
