A lunch thief with serious balls

July 19th, 2009 · 124 comments

Kim in Canberra says this A3-sized missive was posted in numerous locations on all four floors of her building. Of this numbered list, I’d say #3 is what puts it over the top.

On a related note:  Did you know the word “avocado” comes from the Aztec word for testicle? (Thanks, Wikipedia!)

Dear Avocado-stealer, I hope you enjoyed my avocado, the one I left (4th floor) for my lunch yesterday (Tuesday 13th May). Beyond my frustration not to find my lunch, I would like to say this: 1. I work hard to buy my food, I put effort in going to the shop to select it, why don't you? 2. If you are a

      I can’t fathom the kind of person who would take the time to write a fucking novel about a missing avocado. If it really bothers you that much, just poison another avocado and leave it in the same place and the situation will resolve itself. Damn hippie college kids, get practical, stop whining.

      It doesn’t matter if it’s JUST an avocado. The fat bastard needs to get his own.

      He needs to setup up a surveilance cam and then leave an avocado in the fridge for +_+ BAM BAM time

      If the word “avocado” comes from the aztec word for testicle, the Aztec must have been very well hung. Here in America the word is NUTS. See the diffence in size :razz:

      I can understand this persons pain. Being from Australia and having grandparents that own an Avocado farm I think I can comment.

      Firstly Avocado’s here are not cheap, we have a Dupoloy with supermarkets, it is Coles or Woolworths and that is it. They never stock ripe Avocados (Called Avo’s in Oz… you know how we just love to shorten words) because they don’t want to lose money due to stock going bad on the shelf. They can cost anything from $2-4 each depending on what the supermarkets think they can get away with. Furthermore they can take up to a week to ripen in a warm climate. Canberra is not warm, it’s cold and it is a geological basin (sh*t hole) which also explains the disposition of our avo eating passive aggressive. They most likely go to ANU (Australian National University) which means they are likely the loveless child of some liberal conservative career politican (Don’t believe me, check out comment 1 and 2, the belief that they work hard for their money and also the contrived idea that ‘plenty of charities’ exist in Canberra, not to mention the implicit belief in private property that the note is based on).

      Since it is so cold you are looking at about 1-2 weeks for the Avo to ripen. Put simply, you don’t ‘purchase’ an Avocado in Canberra, you ‘invest’ in one in the hope for a return 2 weeks later at which point you can paste that mofo onto some toast with cracked pepper and lime.

      This was not the mere theft of an Avocado. This was the worst of white collar crime, the robbery of a neo-con’s investment in their future consumption. It cuts to the core of this young student’s belief in private property and return on investment. I bet they claimed a capital loss on their tax return!

    I have sympathies for the victim of any lunch theft, no matter how histrionic their notes may be. You do have to be a complete asshole to steal someone’s lunch at work– there is no excuse for it, unless their lunch is so similar to yours that you happened to grab their lunch by mistake, in which case they will probably be happy to eat your lunch as compensation. If for any reason they’re not happy to do so, or even if they are, then own up and offer to buy them a new fucking lunch. This is not something that adults should have to be concerned about.

      I agree, I work at a grocery store and we have a break room with a shared fridge. I had food in there with my name written on it twice and someone stole it. They steal other people’s bitten sandwiches, juices, yogurt, lunch from home, anything; it’s pretty pathetic. Sorry, nobody working there is THAT hard up where they need to steal coworkers food. Besides, we have food at demo daily, often have employee tastings at the store and once again…it’s a GROCERY STORE. There is plenty of food around for you to eat/steal that doesn’t belong to employees if you really insist on stealing. When I make laxative filled brownies, put them in the fridge and someone steals them, maybe the runs they end up getting will make them stop stealing food.

      Has PAN ever posted a note that responds to such a note with something like, “I am so sorry I took your lunch. I have seen the error of my ways and shall go forth and counsel other lunch stealers.”?

      I work in a big office building. From time to time, someone takes my lunch. I am thoroughly annoyed when it happens. Yet, in my state of irritability, I am still not idiot enough to sit at my computer and write an anonymous note to an anonymous person about a long gone avocado.

      Also? Avocados are very portable. There is no need to leave them lying about in public places. They can fit in your drawer, in your pocket or in your sock. Or, you can simply sit it on top of something in your general area. The avocado eating public knows this and will take care to keep their avocados to themselves. Thus, any avocado left out in the open is a signal that it is a PUBLIC avocado.

      You lose again, note writer.

    Avocado Lover,

    I did enjoy that avocado, thank you for asking! In response to your letter, I’d like to say:

    1. I work hard to find my lunch. I put in effort to select it from co-workers’ lunch.

    2. Why is “poor” in quotations? Do I need an explanation for the word? Australia’s food charities are for those in need. While I’m not above accepting the kindness of charities, I don’t need it (I get free lunch from the co-workers), I choose to leave it for those who have no co-workers to thieve from. Do you want me to use up the limited supplies meant for those who really need it?

    3. I did ask you, last week, remember? I said “Hey Avocado, I don’t have money for lunch, would you mind sharing?” and you said: “Well, you would have money if you didn’t spend it all on those hideous clothes.” Not only did you hurt my feelings about my clothes, you made me go hungry. That was the start of taking lunches. ARE YOU HAPPY?!

    4. Ask yourself whatever you want, it’s still talking to yourself, and we, the “sanies” don’t want to hear it.

    5. I’d return what was stolen, but now it’s past the toilet, and into the ocean (much like Nemo). So, it’s irretrievable. I’m sorry.

    Thanks for the lunch, I look forward to thieving from you again!

    *A few days later the author’s lunch was stolen again, and even though she made good on her promise and left her phone number in there, the theif didn’t call, at least not right away.*

    Phone rings. It’s 3:06AM.

    Author: hullo?

    Caller: Hey, it’s me.

    Author, blinking slowly: huh?

    Caller: The guy who took your lunch. First it was an avocado and today I snagged a nectarine and some string cheese.

    Author: huh? Wha? It’s 3 in the morning.

    Caller: Yeah, I know. I woke up and I was really hungry. I started thinking about your lunch and wondered what you were bringing today.

    Author: huh?

    Caller: For lunch. Man, I don’t know about you but I’d choke a ho for some fucking cold pizza, ya know?

    Author: Huh?

    Caller: Yeah. And would it kill you to pack pudding cup? I like butterscotch.

    Author: Wha? Wait, you took my lunch?

    Caller: Yeah. I appreciate the whole sharing thing you proposed. I figured I’d put in a request.

    Author, alert at last: I’m not going to pack your lunch!

    Caller: Did I say that? No. Pack yours and I’ll share it with you.

    Author: No. That’s not how it works.

    Caller, angry now: That’s what you said. You said I should give you the chance to share. You said you would love it. LOVE IT!

    Author: Well I don’t and I don’t want you calling me.

    Caller, screaming: BUT YOU LEFT YOUR NUMBER!!! YOU SAID YOU WOULD SHARE!!! ARE YOU A LIAR? DID YOU LIE TO ME? BITCH!!!!

    Author: FUCK YOU! I’m not packing food for you. I’ll stop packing my lunch and I’ll get a sandwich from the deli across the street.

    Caller: You will?

    Author: Yes! I will never pack my lunch again. I’ll spend five dollars every day on lunch at the deli across the street. And you won’t be able to steal my lunch. How do you like that?

      Anglophile – maybe you need a sense of humor. Maybe you are just upset that someone ate your stupid avocado and stuck the pit up your bum. I can tell you have a bug up your butt if you have to judge others for thinking something is funny and you don’t. All I can say now is “bite me”.

    Here is what you should do: make a crappy lunch. Make it look appetizing, but feel free to spit in it and mess with it. This is for the lunch stealer. Bring money with you to go out and buy a lunch for yourself. Now, you got your pay back. :)

    Totally unrelated to the note, but related to the point that “‘avocado’ comes from the Aztec word for testicle”….

    So does “abogado”, the Spanish word for lawyer. And, come to think of it, “advocate”, the British-English word for the same.

      No, “advocate” comes from the Latin “advocatus”, and the Spanish presumably likewise. I don’t know what you’re talking about.
