Yeah, goes great if you already had a rough morning and find out your lunch has been eaten.

I've heard stories of people getting back at lunch stealers, so it's not necessarily a crime without risk. "Hey, that tuna fish sandwich I brought in was mostly cat food!"


I've heard some stories. I had my coffee cream stolen, thought of putting another carton in the fridge but spiking it with eye drops but that could kill someone. But would have been great because the bathroom was far enough from the break room that no way they could have made it.

If you pit Visine in someone's drink they will get very sick very fast.

Saw it on CSI and somewhere else. But on CSI the guy had a heart condition or something and died.

Over creamer? I would find a clever
way to lock the top on.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Yeah, it's unlikely to cause them to need the restroom, just serious medical help and assisted breathing: http://www.snopes.com/medical/myths/visine.asp

Probably a little excessive over creamer. Maybe not over a really good sandwich.... ;)

Not creamer, light cream. At the place I worked previous to that one there was no problem and I started to like the good stuff. Where the creamer was stolen, well picture one of those huge Chinese factories with rows of people working but with A/C and free parking.

Well, that changes everything.

It can be.

1) Make your lunch like you normally do.
2) Be sure you know who stole it.
3) Approach that person and tell them "You know, three people who also had that are in the hospital with food poisoning. I guess I'm lucky someone stole my lunch... Say, are you looking pale?"

This is not so much a pet peeve, except it just make me think how stupid some people must be. Or maybe that advertisers like doing annoying shit. Not sure which, maybe both.

For instance, an article that has random words linked to a store selling the object. Like I am reading a story on the winner of a car race losing his mirror, and the word mirror is a hyperlink to selling mirrors.
No one has ever proven I am not God.
