Many jobs working in charity are paid, so I don't think that could have worked out very well. That, and walking out of a position that OP probably enjoys considering that charity work is usually not paid that well even if it is paid isn't worth some lost cookies (though lost cookies are tragic indeed).
As corny as it might sound, it's not just about lost cookies, it's about principle. OP's manager knows full well that they are his cookies and not 'company property' but is still being deliberately and unnecessarily nasty about it. It's not too difficult to guess why OP was having a bad day in the first place.
It is considered a form of assault. It is also a potentially deadly prank because laxatives can interact with other medication you may not be aware that person is taking. They can also cause potential heart problems and symptoms similar to Scarlet Fever if you accidentally ingest too much of them (such as, oh a dozen laxative laced cookies.) There is also a small subset of people who can have a severe allergic reaction to certain laxatives. So yes, you can be arrested for giving someone laxative laced food and you would totally deserve to be arrested for it. Bottom line, don't lace peoples food or beverages with ANYTHING unless you are ok with possibly killing them and/or going to jail.
You'd think people that work in donation centers would be nicer than that. FML OP
You're working at a donation centre, therefore you volunteer, right? Well if that's the case you have nothing to lose by telling him to stick it and walking out.
