Our agency is kind enough to have bread, butter, marmite, peanut butter, jam, cereal, orange juice (some generic brand) every morning for us.

Please review that list.

Does it mention cream cheese? Does it mention Tropicana organge juice?

No, it does not.

I buy it for myself as that's what I like for brekkie. I don't like juice with bits, I only drink Tropicana and I like toast with cream cheese in the morning.

I noticed my juice was oddly finishing sooner than normally...It's not cheap and it's one of the few luxuries I am allowing myself as I save for move/wedding. So, I put my name on it. Didn't think it was necessary, but okay..fine.

So this morning I find someone using my cream cheese...I ask about it.

'It was in the fridge'

Um...so is a lot of other people's either brekkie food (one girl eats mackrel every morning), lunches, etc.

You didn't buy it, it's not what the office normally provides.

You are either stupid or rude...considering recent events, I am actually going with stupid which actually makes me angrier.

I've learned I need to label my food or it disappears... Though I don't put it down to rudeness, I put it down to morning-half-asleepness (perhaps overly charitably!) People aren't switched on before their morning coffee...

Nope - don't buy it.
I would NEVER use someone else's food...and if there is something unusual in the company fridge from what we normally have, I ASK if it's something that the company has provided (I did this about mayonaise just last week actually, turns out it's provided as our client is Helmanns)

Then again - if it had been anyone else, I probably wouldn't be so fussed and just sent them a little email. But this is my ASSISTANT who I am doing her work as she is too stupid to do it herself. Or feels it's beneath her or something like that.

Sorry - rant over - for now...I am sure she will piss me off again.

just put your stuff in a carrier bag in the fridge - people tend to be happy to steal stuff when (in their head) it's not obvious it's yours (people have the habbit of missing your name on stuff)

If stuff's in a carrier bag, people's behavoir tends to change - as in they know they shouldn't go in there....
