I have a friend who's parents (who worked together) actually went out and gathered dog shit, mixed it with some mayo and what not and made sandwiches. When they were stolen, as always, they left a note for the thief that read "To the person that's been stealing our lunch, hope you enjoyed the dog-shit sandwiches yesterday!" Never had a problem again.

Some people are so proud that they'd rather steal than be charity. I know quite a few. And also, if you have bills, food may be one of the ones that you can't manage to pay. So, FYL if you're being a complete douche and not taking into consideration WHY he might have been stealing.
Consideration of why he was stealing? What a sack of shit. No matter how you spin it, he's still stealing food from another person and thereby needlessly putting them in the position he'd have been in otherwise: nothing to eat. This isn't the wild, this is what should be a professional setting. When you work like this guy obviously is, you budget to include food. It shouldn't take a genius to realise that. Stealing is inexcusable and he deserved a much nastier trap, something that would give him horrible gastrointestinal trauma.
#119, did you ever consider that maybe the person who the OP stole food from has money troubles? Maybe that lunch they packed was all they could afford, and after the OP stole it, they had no food and no money to go out somewhere and buy more. Also, would you say it was justified if someone ate a restaurant, and then just walked out without paying because they were too poor to afford to pay for it, and 'too proud' to take charity? If not, explain to me how that's any different from stealing someone's lunch at work.
That's a load of bull. How can you defend him? He has a job, and there is plenty of places to get food for cheap. Plus, if he has money for a computer to post this on FML, I'm pretty sure he has money to bag a simple bagged lunch. He was stealing because he was lazy and thought he could do whatever he wanted, adn he thought he could get away with it because his co-worker hadn't taken any action to do anything about it until now. I don't know what in his mind made him think he would get any sympathy, but he wont get much from here..
Er, Mr.Pentameter, using your logic, as I'm a bit short on money and am too proud to get a minimum wage job, it would be acceptable for me to start mugging people or robbing banks. In this case, there is NO reason to be doing so - there has to be some kind of vending machine or store nearby. But yeah, this is the textbook example of a YDI.
Well, that's what you get for stealing someone else's food. What, were you too lazy to make your own? It's not that expensive to get a dollar hamburger Are you really expecting sympathy on here?
Do you go to Wren High? If so, hope you liked your lunch, fucker.
You totally deserve it.... and you deserve to be fired. My office will fire anyone stealing anybody's stuff out of the refridgerator. YDI, you poor excuse for a human being.
I bet the guy who made the sandwich is actually the one who wrote this, to see how many people would be against the sandwich thief and say he deserved it.
