Stealing a can drink is just as bad to me too. It's not yours, you didn't pay for it, so take your sorry behind over to a soda machine and buy your own or just leave out for lunch. And I can't stand someone who always wants to borrow other peoples drinks just because their coworker has brought more than one drink to work that day.

No, theft is theft so it doesn't matter if it's food or not. And what if you're allergic to something that they've cooked within their food. Then you'd really feel like an ass if you had to take unpaid days off of work because you had gotten sick.

i've only ever had a diet coke stolen and i was very pissed but i work in a small office with all girls who are all very very good friends (well, most anyway) and i think it was a new girl who stole my coke and i was like NOT COOL and i told everyone (i'm not above rumor spreading)i've never stolen food but because we are friendly, we will ask to borrow various condiments or small snacks or whatever...but asking is NOT the same as TAKING

Eek. Our office fridge is sad and smells bad. Now if it looked like the one above, I can't say I wouldn't be tempted!

Someone left a box of Snickers Ice Cream bars in our office freezer. When they were still there, untouched, a week later, I definitely helped myself to one (I was having a bad day). Alas, they weren't totally frozen and after one bite, I had a big, melty mess that I had to trash. Serves me right for stealing!

NO, and it's so annoying to find that someone has taken mine. I'll really throw a fit because that is NOT cool at all.

Real talk: I've stolen mustard. (Sorry!) Real talk: Someone occasionally steals my Amy's frozen meals and it makes me sad.

I wonder if it's different in offices with a lot of men. My husband's coworkers constantly steal each other's food...my husband will keep yogurts in there and they'll always get stolen. I don't steal anyone's food at work and I don't think anyone's ever stolen mine. I did use someone's coffee creamer out of desperation once...the regular creamer was gone. I don't think she missed it though.

I once heard of a fire station that had a fridge for each shift (so it had 3 of them). Well, food was being ripped off so one of the fridges ended up with 6 bullet holes in it........

A co-worker had an eating disorder. The only thing she would eat all day, every day, was one boca burger (no bun, just patty) with one packet of mustard. She kept a box in the freezer.One day, she saw the director of HR eating a boca burger at her desk and thought "oh, other people are eating boca burgers". Then at lunch, she goes to the freezer, and a couple of her patties are missing! The HR director took them! Who steals food from the office anorexic?! Another time, Ernst & Young was in the office for a meeting. There was a catered lunch to follow. In an empty meeting room, the office manager put out the trays of sandwiches, cookies and salads. Everything was pristine, this was not the leftovers in the kitchen. The HR director (who was not part of the meeting) helped herself to the food, before the meeting was even over. So the E&Y folks arrived to a lunch that had already been picked at

I'll admit that I have used a squeeze of someone's ketchup or salad dressing in the past if I ran out (and I know people use mine occasionally too) but I never would take someone's food. Am I wrong in thinking there is a difference?

A coworker that ate a ton of sugar free jello got fired so I ate all of her sugar free jello over the course of a week. And once I stole a diet coke from a coworker that was a bitch to me that day. I'll own up.
