Theft

So someone stole a bunch of quarters out of my desk at work. Sure sure, I left the drawer unlocked, but come one, this is my place of work. I shouldn't HAVE to worry about someone going through my desk for change after hours. So apparently it's a common problem with other departments reporting the same kind of stuff. Glad I found that out after the theft.

One coworker comments, "You know, I thought I was going crazy, but I've been thinking that my crackers were disappearing out of my desk!"
Another coworker adds, "I guess I should take my Booberry and Frankenberry home with me every day!"
I reply "Count the marshmallows."


Totally waiting til she leaves so I can steal her monster cereal.

lol.
I feel like I'm a 5 year old, but I am actually laughing out loud at that.

Now she will never suspect you because you told her to count the marshmallows - brilliant thinking!

When we were young, my brother wanted to stud our jack-o-lantern with razor blades, blade side out, because someone stole them every year and busted them on the street in front of our house.
Our eternal-spoilsport Mother wouldn't allow it.

But maybe you could tape some razor blades to more quarters in your drawer? And then remember that they are there, since it would suck to then need a quarter and have forgotten... or maybe it would be karma.
Okay, maybe just something sticky on them so the thief is more irritated than injured?

Damn it, I've turned into my Mother!

I remember one Halloween night, coming home from trick or treating to find the masks missing from several of my dummies.

I remember not being able to comprehend why someone would steal from someone trying to put on something for the neighborhood.

The thieves had excellent taste though, they took both the Topstone Ghoul and the Don Post Tor Johnson.

Seems to be a common problem with overnight janitorial services (sorry, maintenance crew). At one of my old jobs I actually had a bottle of Advil disappear.

And where I am now they've used my PC to charge their iPhone. I knew this because when I unlocked my terminal it still had that Apple iTunes popup. Funny thing is the network admins shrugged it off - hell that's a potential security risk in my book.

I don't mind the admin team accessing my pc, it's company property and their right. But the janitors are NOT supposed to touch anything but the garbage cans and clean the floors. Hell, they aren't even supposed to talk to you, its against their company policy.

Unbelievable! I'm glad I have a tool box that is double locked and each tier is bolted to each other.... I'd like to see them get that out the door, weighs a ton!

you should pour out the cereal, put a dirty old glove in the bottom, and then put the cereal back in.

A) Still looking for Halloween cereal in my town. What the heck is wrong with these people? I have an entire childhood WITHOUT these things to catch up on. Don't they understand?!
B) Don't these idiot theives know who you are? That you can haunt them to within an inch of their lives? Sheesh, what morons!
C) Have some folks show up in police uniforms to dust for fingerprints when the cleaning crew comes in. That'll scare the little meth-heads!

@sara

undepad, that's damn hilarious. i love it.

Marrow said...

by the way rot, i'm very interested in your job. it probably isn't anything to do wit halloween, but i still wonder. HOW THE HELL do you go to work every day, make all these monsters for etsy, maintain a HUGE blog, enter a scarecrow competition each year, make an OUTSTANDING yard haunt each year with 20+ props, do all your halloween shopping and still have a working marriage with bean. its crazy.

Rot said...

Nope. It's nothing to do with Halloween.

And I think I'm one of those people who can't stop moving. And there are two of us who are equally crazy about Halloween, so we're kinda always on the go.

Sara said...

I agree with Marrow, how do you DO it?

@Dio,freaking hilarious post.

Not to mention that paper mache takes forever to dry indoors. Do you use a blow dryer or fans?

NoahFentz said...

I guess you wont be leaving any Pumpkin Pie pop Tarts in your desk now...

Thats bollocks about your quarters, but over the plotting of purloining cereal I am in awe. Rot, you are beyond great!!! I gotta know, are you single? If so wanna run off and get married in a cemetery somewhere? All joking aside, you are astounding. Cheers.
