Angry Nurse here! - page 2

Last night a float pool tech ate my lunch and threw away my tupperware containers when he was done. I didn't know about it until it was too late, but I had homemade soup, yogurt, homemade cookies, and a drink tied in a bag in the... Read More

    It blows my mind that people do this. It happens so often too.

    Wow. I can sort get that people take sodas left out in the fridge, but to take homemade food in tupperware?! Honestly who opens something like that and eats it? I'd would've probably gotten fired in your position. That's insane. Make sure you lock your locker.

    This happens to me so often that I started just bringing instant oatmeal to work and just eating that with a banana. Basically, I dont bring anything that needs to be in the fridge so I can just lock it in my locker.

    Start a paper trail and keep pushing until someone listens. People like this turdburglar get away with this kind of stuff because folks do nothing.

    Seriously? I love how he thinks the "no name on it" excuse makes it justifiable. I'd report him because theft is theft and if he has so little regard for coworkers I bet he wouldn't hesitate to steal from patients either.

  6. 4 I'm sorry, but my pregnant butt would have still been at work creating a scene, and complaining about my starving fetus until someone did something about it. lol. This is unacceptable

    What did you end up eating? I don't think I could go a whole shift without eating anything and I'm NOT pregnant... so I can imagine how upsetting that must have been for you. I get super cranky if I don't eat... hard to function with low blood sugar...

    I think I would have demanded that person to order me lunch or else I would definitely tell their supervisor.

    That's terrible. And for me I'm so picky over food that I rarely eat homemade food that someone brings in. I rarely participate in pot lucks at work. Unless I know for a fact that the person is super clean and have no pets. Or they don't allow their pets in the kitchen. Not saying you aren't clean but still to eat someone's personal food that you don't know. It makes my skin crawl thinking about it.

    This sounds reportable and especially since he is known to do this. What a jerk.

    My goodness, he has no boundries to say the least, if he's doing this everywhere he goes. This is an anti-social trait. I wonder what else he's taking from others, and yes this is a fireable offense, its stealing.

    can't believe that there are people like that, but there really are. In my previous workplace I was warned that there are "rats" who stole food in the fridge so as much as possible we must not store foods in there!I agree...I he should be fired/reprimanded from what he does,,what he did is really unacceptable
