The kitchen is often an important space in any office environment, providing both nutritional sustenance and perhaps some respite from the traditional happenings of the daily grind. The office kitchen can also, however, be a source of angst and distress should you fall victim to the form of corporate corruption known as lunch theft. Bit Rebels posted an article last week displaying examples of how employees have responded to such an occurrence that truly capture the amount of duress it causes.
As an antidote to this vexation, I suggest carrying your own promotional lunch cooler to work. Others will be less likely to steal something that is properly enclosed in such a container.
