Seen Around The Office: Pigs beware!
I’m going to be brutally honest; I am a culprit of office theft. There I said it. But it was only for salad dressing, which some argue isn’t real food anyways, so I don’t feel bad.
Personally, I’d love to catch a co-worker stealing my entire lunch, just for the dramatic effect of yelling, “GET YOUR HANDS OFF”, then followed by a whisper, “my lunch.” Everyone would stop what they are doing and run into the kitchen to see all the commotion. (I should stop watching bad sitcoms).
I pondered ripping down this particular sign many a time because it’s utterly annoying. People who put up signs like this are the same type of people that cover their couches with plastic and collect binoculars, just for the hell of it.
This reoccurring thought has held me back from shredding it each time: What if this sign is keeping a fellow co-worker from breaking down about childhood bullies? I imagine the chances are high that this thought is somewhat true. I also imagine the chances are also high that same co-worker is the one pilfering food on the regular.
