Is It Okay To Steal Fellow Co-worker’s Food? [POLL]
I’m the most patient person ever and probably one of the most giving. I give everything I have to everybody else, even though I am dirt poor. Like “Joe Dirt” but with no mullet. There is however one thing that makes me very angry, because I work very very hard for the very little I have on this planet. Stealing. I don’t care what it is. I just don’t tolerate it well.
It is by far the highest form of disrespect one can endure from a co-worker. That soda in the fridge, a sandwich, the dollar in quarters on your desk. I think is more of a principle thing. Today, I came into work and went to my corner (yes, a corner they wont even give me a desk or mailbox) and I noticed that some delicious candy that I brought in for me to enjoy while I work went missing.
I already knew something was up, because the thief talked about it on the air and wrote a blog about it. I don’t know if this was his way of gloating or getting my attention so I wouldn’t be upset. I will say…not cool bro. not cool. I now will live like a squirrel here at work and look for some new hiding places for my things. I’m here 6 days a week, so I’ll be able to keep an eye on them. And the one day I’m not here, Larry is also not here.
Do you steal your co- workers food or have you ever been the victim of this heinous crime? Is it something you look past, or bring it up?
