I am "Hot enough to *&^%!!!
I put my Stuffed Ham Sandwich plus a pound of it in the refrigerator at work today. When I went to eat my lunch, someone had opened my sandwich and didn't even bother to wrap it back up!!! I am real picky about that so I did not eat it and am getting rid of the extra pound I had bought. WHAT IS WRONG WITH PEOPLE??? Boy did I go off. It will be a miracle if I don't get fired for all the &#^%^ words I was using before I get laid off next Tuesday. I am sure the whole third floor could hear me. Some asked if I had my name on the bag???WTF Why? so who ever would know who's lunch they were violating???? I drilled into my son's head while he was growing up "if it is not yours, DON'T TOUCH IT!!". And this is susposed to be a professional organization........:stillshakingmyhead:

I agree with you completely. James won't bring anything to school and put it in the refrigerator because people take things. There is even a commercial on TV where a man takes a woman's frozen meal, cooks it, and eats it. She is mad that he took it, but the commercial makes it sound like you should expect others to take your food because it is so good. Nothing in the commercial even hints at the fact that it is stealing.

They didn't steal it. Just opened it and who knows what else. At least it was left (wrapped in foil) open to warn me that it was messed with.

Yeah that's weird, and gross.

this is one for the books. when i was in the re-hab place my son brought me a huge sub. sandwich from my favorite italian place. it was so big that i ate it for two nights. had saved a piece of it for my last night there. it was in the staff fridge. had my name on it and someone took it. just about par for the course at that place. stealing is stealing.

I would make a huge beautiful sandwhich with wholesome bread, fresh green leaf lettuce and canned dog food. Plant that in the fridge and let the thief have a big ol' bite of that!

I'm noticing several commercials like that. It is disturbing to know kids are seeing them. The one with the lady moving the divider on the grocery conveyor is just as bad- it encourages sneakiness and disrespect for others and their things. I just don't understand how anyone could let this get this far. You can protect your kids from shows you don't want them watching, but commercials are everywhere.

I guess this is a vent. I just received my wireless mouse. It works pretty good - mostly. It does have a tendency to wander or occasionally do the jitterbug. Mostly, when I go to point at something, it goes where I want it, but it's a bit unnerving at times.

I hope that if I can break my habit of following my reading with the pointer, it will settle down. I really need it. Because of the bad back, I have to use my laptop in my lap and the mouse on the arm of the recliner. Not having that cord crossing the computer is so much nicer, and when I move the computer to my desk, I can just leave the mouse where it is or put it on the table next to my right hand.

Like I said, not much of a vent, but it still feels good to express aggravations too.

I love my son dearly, but I've pretty much stopped relying on his word. We can't make plans with him because they are always changed multiple times, or never confirmed, or he will be late. I've told him that from now on, we are planning things and he is always invited and we want him to be there, sbut we're going ahead and it is up to him to make it. If not, maybe next time. He understands. He is a busy guy and so are we.
