    @ExcitedScaredBee:  You have got to be kidding me. I voted to give the bar back but honestly, I call shenanigans on this. Every office I have ever worked for treats for the taking we’re left in the kitchen. Even if this weren’t true, what idiot leaves stuff, has it taken and then demand payment?

    1. Leave the $10 or put the chocolate bar back.

    2.Never again take anything until you know for certain it is free.

    I agree that the person was foolish to leave the chocolate bars without a sign. On the other hand,  a stack of chocolate bars wouldn’t look like leftovers from a gift basket to me. We also leave treats and leftovers on the table in the lunchroom. But people also regularly bring in nuts, chocolate bars, Girl Guide cookies etc to sell for their kids.

    If it is well known within your office that food left in the kitchen is free for the taking and there was no note when you took the chocolate bar, I’d just keep it.

    That’s a pretty jerk move to pull a bait & switch on the whole office with the chocolate bars.

    $10 for a chocolate bar? FACK NO. I’d probably put a post-it note on the chocolate bar that said “not worth $10” and then put it back in the kitchen next to the cash box. And then go buy 10 Hershey bars instead. 🙂

    I voted other, I think I would leave the chocolate bar next to the change box. How strange! $10! Crazy!

    I’d put the bar back with a note ‘Nice bait and switch, jackass’
