    People stealing lunches from work fridge.

    Hi,

    This has been an issue for the past 6months at my company.
    Basically somebody has been helpping themselves to other peoples lunch.

    I've personally had pizza stolen even tuna cans taken from my lunch bag.
    Other people have had their entire lunch gone and drinks gone too.

    Basically i want to ask have you ever stolen someone elses lunch from work fridge or had your lunch stolen??
    and any tips on how to catch this person?

    Put something disgusting in your food and leave it there, I know I would've. For instance, really, really, really hot spices. Like ghost pepper or something.

    Place a dummy lunch in there spiked with Exlax. You'll all discover the culprit in short order. It won't happen again.

    Think of a time, where the majority of people are busy, that's generally the time someone will go and steal, as there is less chance of them getting caught, Other than that, set up a bait lunch, But don't tell anyone else, I'm talking some super tasty looking food, but with a lot of stupidly hot pepper extract, so they end up getting pretty fucked up:P

    Just make something at home and put lots of laxatives inside of it. That should tell you who stole it fairly fast.

    Just don't get mad and freak out at one of your employees. Then you'll get put on sabbatical, have to go to therapy, and have to live with Joey until you start working again.

    Get something that nobody likes that will last forever, like a fruitcake, put a tiny camera in the fruitcake and stick it in the fridge. Enjoy results!

    Put a note on the fridge, that you've been putting tasty looking food in there with poop on it for months.

    We put a video camera on our fridge at work, three people ended up getting fired after the refrigerator caper of '02

    Its a bit extreme, but fill your food with laxatives and put a big sign on it so the thief remembers it well. I think that might deter him/her.

    Line your bag with Razor Blades.. shouldn't be illegal considering they are attempting to steal from you. But you sure as hell will find out who is doing it.

    Put up a hidden camera. You can find some decent ones for pretty cheap.

    Hot sauce, peppers etc. do nothing to people who aren't sensitive to it. I can eat the strongest mustard, pepper, chipotle etc. and never get upset stomach from it. I think laxatives would be a much better idea. Besides, I think there are tasteless ones available while super spicy food gives itself away after the first bite.

    i like this idea, the laxatives would be fun aswell, but could get you into trouble maybe.
    Too cool for a signature
