Anti-Theft-Device

If you're working in a cube farm or anywhere where an office fridge is used by several people you probably know the problem. Not only is forgotten food rotting in the fridge giving off all kinds of odors.
Judging by the numerous threats and passive-aggressive notes left because of it I'd say it is also very likely that one of your co-workers will help themselves to your lunch eventually. If that was intentional or not we will never know but here's a neat idea to prevent it from happening again in the future.

The Anti-theft lunch bag. Its mouldy green spots make it look absolutely disgusting and you're left hoping that your co-workers won't bin the offending sandwich because they think it's actually way past its use by date. Should that be the case I would defend the "If I can't have it noone can" strategy.

haha, the things that people come up with. It is a good idea to keep people out of stuff though.

That's a great idea. You can just draw on some bags with a green Sharpie and save some money.

Eew. I'm happy that I work in a little bitty salon where I'm usually the *only* one bringing her lunch from home. The others usually eat out. :)

I'm sure you're right, and someone would bin it.

They should make bags with labels claiming that the contents are revolting. "Bull's Testicle Pate", or "Made with vegeterian friendly breast-milk butter". You might find out how adventurous your colleagues are...

That is amazing!

I wouldn't even be able to eat it myself without dry heaving...

The people at my work don't eat other people's things, which come to think of it, is a miracle. But my point is that this is the perfect way to get the office manager to throw out your shit!! She's crazy about clearing out the fridge and this would put her over the top!

omg that's an amazing idea! but I think I won't have the mood to eat the food too. I'm so visual, I might imagine that my food also has mold
