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.
He figured he’d be warming the bench all night, but he soon found himself in goal as the backup’s backup after the team’s first two goaltenders were hurt. (Goalie Corey Crawford is out with an injury; the team’s other goalie, Anton Forsburg, was injured in practice on Thursday; and Forsburg’s backup, Collin Delia, was hurt in the third period, leaving no one but Foster to guard the net.)

I just made that term up, but it feels right, because the ice cream window at Fore-U is opening at 11 this morning*, and even though it’s feeling a little dreary out, I trust the Fore-U folks a lot more than Punxsutawney Phil to tell me when winter is finally over!
(*That’s according to an email sent out by Ice Cream Fore-U this morning! The window will be open daily from 11 a.m.-9 p.m., according to the message.)
According to our records, today’s opening is one day earlier than last year, when Fore-U opened on March 31. So, there’s that.
