Over Stolen Lunch


"Bitch, where's my sandwich?"

The thing about my industry is that everyone loves a good gossip. Especially when it is about bitches.

It began with this certain email...:

Subject: My lunch...

Yesterday I put my lunch in the fridge on Level 19 which included a packet of ham, some cheese slices and two slices of bread which was going to be for my lunch today.

Over night it has gone missing and as I have no spare money to buy another lunch today, I would appreciate being reimbursed for it.

There are items fitting your exact description in the level 20 fridge. Are you sure you didn't place your lunch in the wrong fridge yesterday?

Probably best you don't reply to all next time, would be annoyed to the lawyers.

The kitchen was not doing dinner last night, so obviously someone has helped themselves to my lunch.

Really sweet of you to investigate for me!

Since I used to be a float and am still on the level 19 email list I couldn't help but receive your ridiculous email - lucky me!

You use our kitchen all the time for some unknown reason and I saw the items you mentioned in the fridge so naturally thought you may have placed them in the wrong fridge.

Thanks I know I'm sweet and I only had your best interests at heart. Now as you would say, "BYE"!


Regards
Melinda

I'm not blonde!!!

Being a brunette doesn't mean you're smart though!

---

I definitely wouldn't trade places with you for "the world"!

---

I wouldn't trade places with you for the world...I don't want your figure!

Let's not get person "Miss Can't Keep A Boyfriend".

I am in a happy relationship, have a beautiful apartment, brand new car, high pay job...say no more!!


---

Oh my God I'm laughing! happy relationship (you have been with so many guys - yep really happy relationship with Gav BACKHOUSE), beautiful apartment (so what), brand new car (me too), high pay job (I earn more)....say plenty more.....I have 5 guys at the moment! haha.

And the next thing you know, the email was circulated to EVERYONE in the industry. The war only ended with bitches with no jobs. So in conclusion: don't steal someone's sandwich!

Update : Originally, I linked the article from www.theage.com.au on the matter, but apparently, it has been removed from the website. Can this mean that the sandwich war is brought into the court room? Will the FBI intervene and identify what ever happened to the missing sandwich??? And the plot thickens...

Hilarious how a sandwich can cause so much commotion.. Next time someone should just put a jar of tempoyak in the public fridge... That should start a whole chain of new e-mails..

Sorry for the commotion bitches. I took the sandwich. I could pay back, so do you both do sandwich?

one of my project mates once lost the baby milk that she had expressed during lunch time, saved in a milk bottle, and she'd stored it in the fridge.

who in the world would take that??

Blogger Zed said...

i am still laughing from K.A's comment!!! as for the FBI's? i think they have moved on to the case of the missing expressed milk, due to starving babies and angry daddies. i just can't get this grin off ma' face! ROTFL...

KA - someone who didnt know that was baby milk? hehe.

woah.. As i was reading ur post, i didnt think it'll be for real. sheesh! Everybody just wants to be right and win.

Which industry DOESN'T love a good gossip? :p

Nice read, this. And to think everything started from a misplaced sandwich! Ahahah.

Are you sure this really happened?

Sheesh!

And just over a sandwich!!! Wonder how they'd react if it was over a man..

i recalled receiving a similar email from my Office Manager (who sent out a mass email 2 every1 btw) about someone who stole someone's lunch from the fridge in the pantry. apparently it was her lunch that was taken away. i thot that was stupid and at the same time funny coz we all dont like her. but i guess the best comment was from KA - the babymilk story. hehe.

babe :

hahahah...revennge is sweet isn't it? ;P and yeah, i love subway sandwiches. always go visit when i am at OU.

you're making me hungry lah babe...

foxybabe :

yeah, the post is reflective of the emails that was forwarded to me. the funny part was to see the different people that the email was forwarded to...hahahha...

macam mana nak cari kerja after all that kan?

sports freak :

hahahah...tempoyak. i would have been the first to have stolen it (really like tempoyak...huhuhu)

after this email, i went to check my company's fridge (never opened/used it before) and found a carton of cream expired since January!!! Seriously salah.

madnessinvain :

exactly! huhuhuhuhu...

chics :

ahahhaha...they are not from my company (but funny if they were).

chi :

hahaha...yeah, i can imagine the arguments you would have with your HR department. ;P

vlad :

MUAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH!!! i can depend on you to find something sexual even through a cat fight. so yeah, dah pernah buat sandwich ke? huhuhuhu...

kepala angin :

ewwwwwww. i think it could be someone who is at a disagreement (translate = hate) your boss by making his/her coffee with clouds of "natural" milk. heheheheh...tastay!

zed :

i think the fbi took the sandwich and the milk for themselves...huhuhuhu...

inn :

the thing is i don't think it is all about the sandwich. it is very clear that these women did not like each other in the first place. calling someone "miss i can't keep a boyfrend" determines this speculation. heheheheh...

some women can be so catty. ;P

pesa :

entah lah dude. as the email states, it was just a some pieces of bread, cheese and ham. and exactly siapa brings food from home at the office???

elmo :

someone broke into your office and stole your cartoon mural??? what the hell??? i seriously think that thieves are getting nuttier by the day...

sweet elfyn :

hey, thanks for dropping by! :) and yeah, i can only imagine if it is over a guy. iraq war terus!

checked out your blog. like your concept. :)

silent reverie :

hahahhahaha...so people do steal other people's lunches? talk about revenge. ;P

lola :

hahahah...don't get me wrong, these catty women weren't from my company, but from a similar industry. but yeah, the drama in my company is incomparable. heheheh...

No luck on that. Although once was this close. A mate backs out because he doesn't like the idea of having to see mine and I see his.

So we opt for Peanut Butter and Jello sandwich instead.

vlad :

peanut butter and jello sandwich? huhuhuhu...that's a first.

i recommend the toasted peanut butter and banana sandwich (yeah, simply slice bananas into the sandwich and voila!). learnt how to do that cuisine in first grade. hahahhaha...
