What's your problem? Missing food

Someone keeps nicking my food at work.

There's a kitchen on my floor at work. Someone stole my Marks & Spencer's ready meal and this isn't the first time, as I've also had my homemade sandwiches nicked. I've stuck a note on the fridge door but no one has owned up. How do I stop this happening again? I can't believe my colleagues would do such a thing.

A: Next time, add a label:

'To whom it may concern,

You might like to know that I always spit in my sandwiches before placing them in this fridge.'

They won't know that you haven't.
