    During uni days in the land down under. One of our friends got so pissed that his pies are always stolen, did this:

    - he dug out all the fillings of the pies and open a can of cat food, pour the contents in.

    - as expected, the pie was stolen. then he happily put up a notice saying how did the cat food pie taste?

    - no one stole pies ever again. LOL..

    If that failed, he wanted to put in laxatives in the food. The person that went non stop to the toilet was the culprit. LOL

    Another note I saw and still remember was this:
    "May you fail your exams forever if you steal my food."

    That's why I lick my half eaten food before saran wrapping them and placing them in the fridge. Hahah…I oso want my nice tupperware back!

    One colleague recently brought durians into our humble pantry. When told of by the big boss, she said she wanted to share them with the rest… *rolls eyes*

    So true of you to say every office has one of these fellaz. Ours is nicknamed The Devastator (like the one in Revenge of the Fallen)… because the fella inhales everything in its path.

    Keropokman: Ahh we had that initial problem with my roommates back in Uni since we didn't know each other. But after a month or so, we decided to all chip in for shopping fund. So everyone gets to share everything in the fridge/cabinet/kitchen.

    Cat food's nasty!

    J: Why!?!?

    C&C: "And God is watching you, and God is watching you….from a distance"

    BTW added your new link long time ago lah

    TNG: If that happened to me, I'll ask Ah Pa to make a CrapCake with nice frosting and leave it in the fridge for the arse who steals food.

    AhPa: No lah, nothing's mine. All stolen from an email

    Nic: It's INK!!! Lesson learn, never bring anything to work unless u intend to share it or have it contaminated

    Unka: Durian to share? That's nasty!!

    Frat: The Devastator!! Hahahaha! That's a good one bro.
