A governmental solution would be to hire someone with experience from TSA to affix a name tag to each lunch as they were placed in the refrigerator. This would happen ONLY during designated times. When an individual wished to consume their lunch they would present photo identification to claim their lunch. Of course that would be only during designated times.

What a timely find for this! We have had this going on for years. The past three weeks have been the straw that broke it...I bought a 5 qt pail of ice cream for a co-worker and I to use for dessert. Somebody or more ate the whole damn thing except for about a couple of tablespoons. Then they took a crapload of our water/soda cans and powerade zero's, and then more ice cream bars. Our lunches disappeared. This totally pissed me off. I had IT put in a camera since it had gone over the top. I will find out tomorrow if they caught anyone. Whoever it was found the camera, and turned it so it gets nothing. They had the nerve of eating the ice cream bars and then putting the empty sticks right back on top of the remaining ones and leaving the wrappers. Seriously? They also swiped a whole pile of automobile mags and and NDSU football journal type thing that I really wanted to look at. Those did not even last one evening.

I am sure that Homer Simpson has had this problem before and has a solution..

No, I do not believe so. It is most likely someone in our own dept (IT could not believe it when we told them what was going on) Free food mongers are rampant.

I had a dog once that would go out of his way to find and eat the butter if it was left out...A friend suggested that I slice the stick open lengthwise, dig a little and add hot sauce then reassemble...Dog stole the butter just one more time and never again.

Something like that could be effective in this case as well?

Way back as a co-op student, I kept my lunch at my desk. A six pack of canned soup, a loaf of bread, a jar of peanut butter and a bowl. Plastic knife from kitchen, soup and sandwich. Cheap, no refrigerator required. Clean bowl after, ready for next day. Boring enough it didn’t get stolen. Vary the soup so one doesn’t get too bored with it yourself, but lunch was around a buck a day. Not bad on starving student wages.

It's a shame smacking people is frowned upon or even illegal, people would be more polite.

Every couple years my wife will come to me and say she needs a nacho donut because someone is stealing food from her work fridge. I spray a little pepperspray in a glass and then inject it into a jelly donut. There is a modest turnover rate at her work, so every so often the newbies need to be "trained". BTW nacho stands for NOT YO DONUT.

Not to worry. Tupperware containers multiply at night.


Actually it's only the lids that multiply.

To hell with speaking to them. That's the nice way.

A great meal laced with laxatives would provide a very valuable lesson and expose who did it.

One thing I've learned is that some people are just assholes for no damn reason.

People at my office think its ok to leave yougurt containers that had a best buy date of 2.5 years ago. They were unopened but had a nice bulge. I spent 10 minutes throwing out tupperware containers with unknown molded food inside. Kind of suprised no one accused me of theiving since 3/4 of the crap got tossed out.

The active ingredient in exlax is phenothalein it is orderless and tasteless, it’s used as a indicator for acid/base solutions, available at any chemical supply store.

Laxatives for the beginning of it and Dave’s insanity sauce for the end of it. That way it will burn like hell going in, and burn like hell all day going out!

A trail cam solved the problem in the shop I work in. One of the dust bunnies that cleans in the evening was feasting on anything he could find. When HR saw the evidence, the offender was immediately escorted out the door. Sometimes, justice does prevail.

My Dad had a secretary that would eat all the candy from the dish on his desk. His solution?
He got some gourmet chocolate covered ants and put them in the candy dish. After the secretary ate the entire dish, he told her what they were.

Tampering with food even though it is yours can potentially get you in a lot of trouble. If writing Beaner on a coffee cup causes problems, imagine the uproar with food tampering. The workplace is not the jolly old place it used to be.

It seems that the acceptable practice is using social media to shame the thief.

My wife (RN)has the Ex-Lax and ipacac fudge recipe. She opened the breakroom refigerator and found her sandwich had a large bite taken out of it. The doctor, when confronted, simply said he had been hungry but didn't like her sandwich. She made the recipe and left it with suitable warning signs. The doctor, of course, decided he wanted The whole thing. He was out for several days but stayed away from the refrigerator.
