Who are you calling OCD?

November 8th, 2007 · 147 comments

This just in: starving unborn children aren’t the only casualties of office fridge lunch thievery. As one anonymous New Yorker reports, now the sick and the infirm are being picked off, too!

To the person who took it upon themselves to clean out the 12th floor fridge: Thank you so much for your initiative!

(Thank you kindly? Best wishes? Hungry on the 12th floor, you kill me.)

      Can someone please educate the noob here on everything being fucking delicious? It makes me giggle every time but probably will even more so if I actually get the joke.

    I’m trying to decide if the insulin tossing is a hypothetical. Since they could write the note while in a coma, I’m going to guess yes.

    It’s almost as if this note is in response to a previous note:

    http://www.passiveaggressivenotes.com/2007/10/21/if-the-tsa-was-in-charge-of-the-office-fridge/

    Maybe the bag containing the Tupperware was too large.

    What makes this note great is the determination to stay with the “cleaning the fridge” conceit. Obviously if the thief was cleaning the fridge more than just the one lunch would be gone. Taking the cleaning conceit all the way down town to the ‘careless disposal of lunch bags can KILL’ is true determination. Unless this person is actually dumb enough to believe that it was a cleaning error and not lunch theft.

    I don’t think discrimination has anything to do with this. It’s obvious that experimental colony affected the Tupperware and made it come to life. Then they started a war, because they both wanted to rule over the office fridge. Some brave person just came along and randomly discarded one of the two to prevent a food fight. Little did (s)he know, the Tupperware contained insulin and (s)he caused a diabetic coma. Such tragedy…

    This one time at band camp, i confused rotten lettuce with sauerkraut. FYI i still can’t un-taste that. Maybe the poor OCD stricken cleaner is not as culturally aware as the PA note writer.

    What if the cleaner is a forgetful diabetic? What if… Team hungry on the 12th floor are exaggerating about their lack of food and there is a cafeteria on the 2nd floor.

    As long as they survive the diabetic coma, I don’t see the problem. The diabetic can get a ton of money off a work-comp claim possibly allowing him/her the luxury of staying home ensuring no one will ever again steal their pretzels and string cheese…

    But what if someone had taken the insulin, then found out there was no lunch? Diabetics need to eat after they take an injection.

    Or what if there were plutonium rods in there, which are even now heating up to an unsafe temperature.? Now you have a freaking MASS MURDERER!

    Or what if there was a goldfish in there that someone won at a street fair on their lunch hour? FISH KILLER!

    So many things Mr./Ms. OCD didn’t consider when on their cleaning spree.

    If the person’s lunch was salad, cheese stick and portioned out pretzels, then it’s possible that the person is diabetic and that’s why he/she came up with the insulin scenario.

    I’m with the others who think this might be a stolen lunch. When people go on cleaning sprees, it’s usually in the afternoon – and this appears to have happened in the morning. Also, people usually post a notice that fridge cleaning is imminent.

    #93: Any real diabetic knows that going without insulin takes weeks/months/years to kill you, not a day. A diabetic coma comes from having too low blood sugar, not too high.

    The insulin nonsense is one of the worst mistakes movies make all the time. It’s worse than the toast popping up burned just because someone is late (because when you’re late you change the setting on your toaster, right?) or someone getting a dial tone as soon as the other party hangs up (that doesn’t generally happen, as anyone who has been hung up on and said “hello, hello, are you there” knows very well).

    Actually, hannibal, both hyper- and hypoglycemia can cause a diabetic coma. And it can come on quite quickly, though that’s not the norm and anyone who is likely to progress right to a coma in an afternoon isn’t likely to have just the one “bag of insulin” in a public place, probably.

    And actually, come to think of it – as katzndogz already alluded to – it’s actually almost as dangerous for that kind of person to have his/her lunch stolen as it would be to have the insulin disappear. However, I believe that said person would have signed the note quite differently – perhaps “Unconscious & Literally ON the 12th Floor”.

  • #127   WanderingPenguin bang

    Well, hannibal, the “most common sort” of diabetic coma is the one where the diabetic person becomes unconscious. And that can happen with either high or low blood sugar – any extreme will do it.

    I was merely refuting what you wrote in post #124 – and I am not even a “real diabetic”! Actually, since I’m not a “real diabetic”, I guess I didn’t really refute your statement after all. Hmm….

    Anyhow, if someone is implying that the loss of their insulin for an afternoon could possibly send them into a diabetic coma then they are not really talking about the most common sort.

    It’s all about context. :)

    Well hannibal…I happen to be a health claims examiner and there is no such thing as a “most common sort” of diabetic coma. All diabetics have complications affecting various other bodily functions…the variables are nearly innumerable. Each situation is unique as a result of the nature of his/her diabetic disorder.

    I keep my insulin in the communal fridge at work – not much of a choice. But it’s in a container marked “LURKER’S INSULIN” in big letters – which is the sort of container I’d expect any diabetic to use. Nobody’s ever bothered it, even in the most slash-and-burn fridge cleanings.

  • #134   ndpity

    Just wanted to clear up a few things here (I have type-1 diabetes). The note-leaver is obviously frustrated, and more than a little bit dramatic. But I also would be REALLY pissed if my insulin suddenly disappeared. That’s why I would never put it in the fridge at work. Insulin really IS delicious and makes a great salad. And it smells just like Band-Aids.
    A “diabetic coma” usually refers to high blood sugar and ketoacidosis from lack of insulin, although low blood sugar can cause loss of consciousness also.
    I would assume that the insulin in question is of the fast-acting variety, and that the note-leaver is on multiple daily injections – meaning, he/she takes insulin at each meal and would have to fast if they were unable to take it. And if that person happened to be a type-1 diabetic, they would be in bad shape within a couple hours – risking long-term complications like blindness and nerve damage. It sounds like this person is being proactive in trying to prevent those complications, which is why they should really keep their insulin elsewhere. It doesn’t REALLY need to be refrigerated after you open it, anyway.

  • #135   WanderingPenguin bang

    From what I have read, ndpity, any extreme glucose levels – high or low – can bring on a diabetic coma. I had a look at the Mayo Clinic site and they didn’t seem to indicate that one was more common than the other. Other sites made it seem like hypoglycemia was the most common cause, while some seemed to back up your statement. But as I said before, I don’t have diabetes (though several family members have had it) so I am only going by what I have read, not having witnessed a diabetic coma firsthand.

    I agree with everything else you wrote, though. And since it came from a “real diabetic”, I hope hannibal reads it as well.
