@bunting:  It happens at my work too.  We will leave things in the back if we’re having a food fest, but people who don’t usually work on our unit will come over and take some of our food without asking.  It’s definitely frustrating.  We do offer if we have a ton, so they could wait.

Wow, that’s crazy!  He definitely should have asked first!

@bunting:  Haha literally my response after reading your post was “Who does that?!!” so you nailed that one.   😉

ETA: Just thought of one.  My aunt stopped by to visit and before she left she grabbed a drink of juice.  Before she left I said “Let me find you a disposable Solo cup.”  She replied “That’s ok.”  and walked out the door and took the juice, glass and all, with her.  She got in her car and drove 45 minutes home.  I’ve never seen the glass again.

It’s nervy enough to take one without asking, but the last one? Wow!

When we have food/snacks in the office I make sure to take one even if I won’t eat it until later… ’cause people in my group will take the last one and leave the box there. I know they’re in the group so they’re entitled to it, but still, throw out the box then, you know?

Our company’s rule is if it’s left unattended in the kitchen it’s fair game.  Should have gotten there sooner.

Omg, I *just* had one happen like 2 minutes after reading your thread!

On Friday at work, one of my coworker uses his whiteboard for games of Hangman throughout the day. Usually we wait until everyone has guessed what it is to reveal, since people obviously can’t all be together at once.

There’s this one old curmudgeon who twice now has come by and just SHOUTED the answer out in front of people still trying to puzzle it out. Seriously?!

You do not get a cookie.

Our FedEx guy helped himself all the time.  Filled up his coffee mug every day, and would take any pizza/donuts/muffins etc… that was sitting on the counter in the kitchen.  I bet it’s sold as an “intangible benefit” when interviewing for the job 🙂

@tiki429:  Yeah, but the mailman doesn’t qualify as a company employee. I wouldn’t bring a delivery to someone’s office and assume I can help myself to snacks in their breakroom or other clearly employees-only areas.

@tiki429:  Pssh, it’s not fair game for the post man no matter where it is!

The attorney who works next door to us comes over any time we order pizza.  It drives everyone insane that we all chip in and pay for it, and then he comes over and enjoys a free lunch.  We’ve started locking all the doors when we order pizza.

I worked at a real estate office and this happened ALL the time!  STRANGERS would try to come in and take some!  I can’t imagine being that person.

I guess it would depend how things are set up & how in his face the food was… At any rate, the *last* one? For shame.

My rant of the day is people not holding the elevator when you’re five feet away. You know they see you walking up. You even make eye contact half the time. REALLY? Is it that uncomfortable for you to be within six feet of someone else for less than 30 seconds that you can’t be even remotely courteous? I always say, “Hey, yeah, thanks!” That is, if I’m not able to push the button quickly, get on, then give them the evil eye. Ha
