Need some ideas on how to retaliate against a co-worker who feels self-entitled enough to go through our company kitchens and steal food and beverages. I realize this is not uncommon, but there are some personal reasons why I can't allow this to continue, and must take action.
We have snack machines, so why not just go grab something? The company even provides us with free breakfast options, and an assortment of snacks, so why must he steal?
As a specific example, I had a case of drinks in the fridge, he asked my assistant if they were hers, she informed him they're actually mine, and he took one anyway.
So, to be even more clear they weren't up for grabs, I put them inside a bag in a drawer of the fridge, and this guy took them anyway.
He's over 50, goes around bragging about how huge his house is, even though he lives with his mother...he's just the epitome of a douchebag with a sense of entitlement like no one I've ever encountered.
Although he's doing it to everyone, I feel it's my duty to take action.
If I was able to get ahold of some AIDS, I'd rub them all over the items, and wait for the test results.
