Getting To The Sauce Of The Problem

, , , , , | Working | April 10, 2018

(I return to my desk after lunch to see it in a bit of a mess. Only after putting a few things away do I notice something amiss.)

Me: “Did someone take something from my desk?”

Coworker #1: “Oh, yeah, it was [Coworker #2]. What did he take?”

Me: “My sauce. I can’t believe he would do that. Actually, I can.”

Coworker #1: “It is only some sauce, buddy. Calm down.”

Me: “Look. You know me. I don’t mind sharing; it just annoys me when people take without asking, especially when I buy stuff specially.”

(As we are talking, another coworker comes back off his lunch.)

Coworker #3: [Coworker #2] is having some fun!”

Coworker: “Why? What’s he doing?”

Coworker #3: “Throwing up in the toilets; something he ate.”

Me: “Serves him right. I had to buy that sauce online, it was so hot. I only use a drop at a time.”

(He ended up taking the day off, unpaid. He never took anything from me again.)
