I think what she means is that the thieves try to make her look petty to the other employees.
Not petty to us.
I was just wondering what the thieves think......."So the OP buys a bulletin board for her office, sticky notes to use....so is she supposed to buy it for everyone else's office, too?"
I buy stuff to use at work, but I feel since I bought it, it's MINE to use as I see fit. I put it in my own personal drawer at work, that we all have, and I have never found anything missing. I have other stuff in there, too, that belongs to the facility and I have told some of my co-workers, "If you need sucn and such I have some in my drawer.'' But I have never had anything personal come up missing from that drawer.
We have a fridge for employees and other departments use it also, but it's located at the nurse's station. I took 2 diet caffeine free cokes to work one day, put them in the fridge, and before I could go out on my med rnd. at 3pm, one of my cokes was gone. That was aggravating, because the coke machine doesn't have the caffeine free. So when I wanted a second coke, I had to go buy one with caffeine and I don't need the caffeine. It keeps me awake at night.
I know it was someone from the front office who got it. Now I put my name on the top of the cans with a magic marker and also put them in a zip lock baggie and my name on the bag and a note saying, "These are MINE!"
People can be so rude. You know they knew those cokes weren't theirs! And I have to stay until midnight. It's not fair that I can't even expect to place cokes in the nurses fridge and expect them to be there when I get back....hot and tired .....from my med rnds.
