Anyone who works in an office will relate to this so. hard. You don’t mess around with your co-workers’ lunches.
On Friday, Twitter user @ZakToscani tweeted out a play-by-play of what happened when one of his colleagues discovered his lunch had been taken out of the fridge at the post-production company where they work.
This story is a roller coaster, y’all. It has twists and turns, generous portions of shrimp fried rice, and is generally amazing. (Click the tweet to read the full thread.)
Co-worker got his lunch stolen and they’ve agreed to let him watch the security camera tape. This is the most excited I’ve ever been at any job ever. Ever.

People were quick to chime in with their own tales of corporate food weirdness.
We had a similar mystery in my office many years ago. The receptionist had a jar of Twizzlers on her desk. Someone kept cutting them in half. The mystery was never solved. Which means the perpetrator is at large.

Years ago, as a HR Manager, I had to "investigate" a complaint that someone was sneaking into another employee's desk drawer and snapping all her carrot sticks in half. It was the highlight of my human resources career.

(Full disclosure: I laughed out loud at the carrot one.)
