Who thinks stealing food is okay?
Theft is theft no matter how you look at it or whatever spin you put on it. However, job culture is different. As many employees think just having a little bite of someone else’s food is okay. After all, if they didn’t want the food eaten, why did they put it in the fridge at work? That is probably the sort of thinking the thief in this story had. As they have no regard for someone’s feelings. This sort of thing is pretty common in most workplaces after all.
I can’t say I have ever faced this situation in whatever place I’ve worked. But then again, I never brought my own food. However, people with allergies have to take serious precautions when eating things. Thus, they usually bring their own snacks from home. That is what this woman always did until she found out that her snacks were being eaten every day. But she could never figure out who was doing it. Until one day she decided to do something about it.
You can find out the answer below.
And so the story of a food thief and how they got caught starts.
At first, she thought she was slowly losing her mind.
As apparently a post-baby brain can do that.
But things weren’t as they seemed.
And soon she took notice of the fact that someone was actually stealing from her.
This theft got especially pronounced when she took a week off.
As someone had finished almost the whole bag of her cookies.
So she did what most of us would do in her place.
She went to complain to the boss but they were non-committal.
So she took matters into her own hands.
And thus deployed a nanny cam that finally caught the thief.
She was ecstatic at finding the culprit.
And brought this evidence to the manager.
But things didn’t end there.
As apparently the janitor had more complaints filed against him from other employees as well.
So this is the story of how she finally stood up for herself and caught a food thief.
Most, if not all, people usually just stop bringing food or lock their drawers because of the fear of theft as not everyone likes confrontation. I remember I used to just have my snacks in my own bag rather than putting them somewhere at my last job. However, this is not always possible especially if your food needs to be refrigerated. But hopefully, people will learn to stop doing this. As people stealing food are not actually bad people. They just seem to think there is no harm in eating someone else’s food if they are hungry.
The only thing I can say is that the human mind works in mysterious ways.
Lost of people chimed in with their own stories.
Apparently, this thing is pretty common in workplaces.
So people deploy various tactics to get people to stop stealing food from them.
From cooking spicy food to giving the thief rotten food, nothing is off the table.
I would feel bad for the people in question but they brought this upon themself.
There are many creative ways you can circumvent food stealing.
But it just boggles my mind to see so many people doing this.
And thinking it is okay to steal food.
Just ask if you are that hungry before you rummage through someone’s snacks.
Has this sort of thing ever happened to you? If so, what did you do to catch the thief? Let us know in the comments.
