    Do to excessive food theft?

      Not only does the note writer horribly misspell the opening of the note, he uses AWFUL clip art! Scales? A camera? Where’s the stereotypical burglar, wearing a black mask over his eyes and carrying a big sack full of stuff?

      Granted, it should be: “Do too excessive food theft,” but that’s quibbling.

      I’m wondering at what point plain, old, ordinary food theft becomes “excessive food theft?”

      Mishee,

      Maybe Claw thought the food in the lockers was available on a first see/first eat basis. I don’t think Claw is the type of employee who would knowingly violate company policies.

      I live by a code, people, and when you live by that code there is no such thing as food theft…excessive or otherwise.

      I’ve made it clear time and time again. I believe that all food stored in office common areas becomes community food 45 minutes after lunch hour officially begins. That’s 12:45, folks.

      I don’t care if you get in at 10 and leave at 8. It doesn’t matter if you work 3-11 and put your “lunch” in the fridge when you clocked in. Once that clock strikes 12:45 anything in the fridge is fair game until work begins the next day. If you don’t like it I suggest you consider buying a personal cooler or applying yourself so you can work on the grown up shift with everybody else who isn’t a loser.

      It’s not theft, it’s the natural order of things.

      How am I supposed to know you got stuck on a call for 50 minutes? I’m never late for lunch. In fact, I make it a point to eat my lunch earlier so I am able to partake of the food that is left in limbo long after the lunching hour began. So, I thought you decided to skip your bagged lunch for yet another ill-advised trip to Burger King. It’s not my fault you can’t stick to your diet and I just don’t feel right about letting good food go bad. So when 12:45 rolls around I do my part to eliminate food waste and belly up to the office fridge.

      It is not theft. The code has been posted. Live by it, or die by it.

      (by die, I mean go hungry. )

      “Do” is spelled correctly, it’s just the word itself that is incorrect.

      “Surveillance” would’ve been caught by the spell checker.

      M, if you lived on “the big nip,” you’d be smiling all the time.*

      (The wind blows so hard, your cheeks seek cover in the frosty shadows behind your ears.)

      Don’t worry. As long as you remain securely tethered to the safety stake, there’s little danger of getting swept off the mountain.

      Perhaps the reason for the scales is about the excessive food that’s being taken, it’s being measured by weight, not total items. It’s bad when 28 food items are stolen, but completely unforgivable when 10 lbs of food is whisked away by the food thief

      3) or in the history of human communication (both written and oral)?

      In retail smiling is actually part of the job. Though that’s really for the managers to tell the employees, not the customers. Different story when you hear it from random strangers in non-working situations; it’s like, if I felt like smiling I’d smile, asshole. Or I’d work in retail.

      I don’t agree that a constant smile is ‘part of the job’ in retail. Sure, when you look up to greet someone, a smile is appropriate. But when you’re concentrating on another task and the guy three down in the line says, ‘Smile, sweetie. What’s wrong? Bad day?’ that’s just plain degrading. I worked in retail for years and never once heard anyone tell a male colleague to smile. And you know, what? Maybe they are having a bad day, maybe something horrible just happened. I would never be so presumptive as to tell someone what expression to have on their face, whether they’re serving me for $7 an hour or not.

      No, no one can possibly smile constantly.

      “Sure, when you look up to greet someone, a smile is appropriate.”

      Yes.

      “But when you’re concentrating on another task and the guy three down in the line says, ‘Smile, sweetie. What’s wrong? Bad day?’ that’s just plain degrading.”

      While I don’t find it degrading especially, it’s annoying. Or, it can be if you’re not in the mood for it; generally in my own days behind the counter those comments didn’t bother me unless I was already in a crappy mood, which I usually wasn’t during rush times for some reason. I think pretending to be cheerful ends up making you actually cheerful sometimes.

    One thing I love about corporate restaurants is how you can always tell when the newly appointed regional manager is in town. It’s obvious when you first pull up to the drive through and you’re immediately greeted by an overly enthusiastic voice on the speaker. “HI!! HOW ARE YOU!!! WOULD YOU LIKE TO TRY OUR OUTRAGEOUS FUDGE BROWNIE SHAKE WITH YOUR MEAL TODAY!!!!”

    Of course not.

    Then you pull up to the window and hand the cashier your money. She’s beaming at you with so much force that you’re terrified you’ll be there to witness a seizure when the blood vessel in her head explode. In the back you can hear that fresh-faced regional stooge imploring the Mexican taking out the trash to SMILE! SMILE!! SMILE!! And you know that dick is in there telling people that the customers can “hear your smile” so he coaches them and they end up screaming everything at you. THE RESTROOM!!! IT’S DOWN THE HALL ON YOUR LEFT SIR!!! BE SURE TO TRY OUR NEW HAND DRYER!!!

    Then you pull up to the service window and you’re again greeted a little too enthusiastically. The lines are so scripted you swear that the girl is reading them from a Cue card. It’s not quite as stilted and overtly theatrical as Annette Benning in American Beauty, but it’s close enough and you wish that the remote to the DVD was handy so you could fast forward through her dialogue. “HERE’S YOUR HOT AND DELICIOUS ORDER!!! (It’s neither, but the Regional Manager believes the service trumps quality and then, the she throws an assumptive close at you securing business for the nest day) WE’LL SEE YA TOMORRA!!!” :-)

    In the Regional Manager’s defense, these initiatives almost always come from some dashing new Vice President who logged on to Phoenix University and snagged himself an MBA. These junior execs always try to make an earlier mark in order to justify their generally useless existence so they can brag their way into a senior VP spot where they will eventually violate SEC regulations, drive the stock value of the corporation down and snag a golden parachute on the way out. Meanwhile, the circle of hell begins again for the rank and file employees who by this time have been asked to learn how to roller skate because some dick decided to go retro and bring back the drive in. Great, can I get an estimate on the fender you dented while I wait on a replacement for the burger you dumped on my windshield? Idiots.

    The experience is always surreal. Unless the people working on the other side of the window are from some sort of adaptive outreach program and arrive to work in a short bus, I don’t want to see them bubbling with excitement over serving me. I know how the game is played and when regular loser Americans pretend they’re happy when they’re schlepping military grade food at military grade pay I can’t help but think that the joke is on me. When my fast food employees are sullen, bitter and disinterested I can be relatively certain that they just didn’t have the angst to wipe their asses with my bun.

    It can be frustrating to think that a customer is talking to you, and when you respond they say, “Wha-? Oh, I wasn’t speaking to you. I was addressing my package.”
