thanks Sizz. It is not a bad thought. It is just that I have worked here for 6 years and this has been an ongoing problem, but luckily this is the first time it has happened to me. I figure a note might just gross the person out enough to cut it out. Probably not, but it would give me some satisfaction knowing that maybe they went home feeling sick to their stomach.

GB, I hope you can post that note on the fridge! I love it!
My sister's been at the same hospital facitility for 20 years, and she still has her stuff stolen. It seems the theives like her french vanilla creamer. She even went so far as to staple it shut, write her name on all 4 sides and put it in a bag, and the thieves would take it out of the bag, undo the staples, use the creamer, and put it back in the bag.

I also like Sizz's idea. Can I suggest a mini decadent cheesecake made with 6 Tbsp of ground chipotles?

I had my lunch stolen at a place I used to work. I don't understand that at all. I DON'T WANT anyone else's lunch and don't understand their thinking.

At the risk of grossing everyone out...maybe you could mention you have a young baby at home too GB, that will make them wonder what you put on that sandwich for sure!

That was in my original draft, but I decided that would give away too much personal info and I don't want the jerk to know who I am. Great idea though

Don't post the note. Bring something you don't have to refrigerate for lunch, and bring a decoy sandwich to put in the refrigerator. Don't put anything that could kill the thief or anything, but a nice pocket of Tabasco in the middle, or a ton of dried granulated garlic would serve him/her right! And he/she couldn't complain about it!

i say post the note gb. that sucks that someone stole your lunch !!
meanie poo-poo heads .

i say make a decoy snadwhich with mud and sardines or something like that. as gross as you can make it without actually making that person sick. just gross enough to where he/she would spit it out and think twice about stealing someone else's lunch again.

Before I read all the posts, first thing that came to mind was plenty of red pepper flakes - and see who makes a beeline for the water cooler. I feel for you GeeBee. Think it's sad that someone has to steal food. First instinct is that someone can't afford to buy their own. Know that doesn't help you. But, when it comes to parking spaces (at the studio), if you park in someone else's spot (who shall remain nameless), they'll tidy up your windshield (& make your day) with a baseball bat.

The more subtle(?) approach was a sign that read 35 cars have been towed from this space. Wanna make it 36!
