Food thief.

As I'm a mature student I live in a shared house with five other mature students. Up to now there's been no problems whatsoever.

On Monday evening I went to get my pack of lean minced beef out of the fridge, only to discover that some thieving toe rag had nicked it. This evening I went to get a pack of bacon out, and yes you've guessed it, someone had stolen it.

I've got no idea who it was, so it would be unfair to point fingers. I've asked all of them if they saw anyone eating the aferomentioned items, but of course they all denied knowing anything about it. It's just annoying that there's light fingered people around that you can't trust not to steal your stuff. If I catch the culprit they may well get a taste of a different type of food - a knuckle sandwich! image

  • Nah, just mix a decent amount of laxative in to one of your packs of meat and you'll soon find your culprit.

    Completely agree. At university a friend put chilli powder on their food and they soon found out who it was.

    The idea of being a student again with the associated problems makes me feel quite ill.

    What's the motivation after the age of 18?

  • Maybe the other people in the house are just trying to wind up the "Rickster" so that he can come out with his Beano Town phrases like " knuckle sandwiches"

    Im thinking to get out of doing real work????

    I did my degree while doing "real work" at the same time.

  • Really? Good job that's not what I studied then.

  • The other option is to put a pork pie in the fridge that is well past its sell by date and then wait for the results.

  • I had this problem at work (years ago); I was so annoyed I kicked the fridge door shut and broke my big toe... I was hopping mad image

    I then tried to drive home to find the Ibuprofen had worn off and I nearly crashed the car....

    I did a similar thing to the Lucozade incident above; the cheese went but nobody went sick....

    Mind you I read this last night at work just after I had eaten a Doner kebab + chips then had my spaghetti bolognaise that I brought in from home then followed by a couple of apple turnovers with cream (going cheap). Imagine my delight when I came home to a couple of warm croissants from Lady SideBurn... Hmmmm

    Is that a euphemism?

  • Easy tiger... I have just finished a night shift!

    My recommendation too, although the chilli suggestion is also good.

    There's a funny book about flat-sharing called "I lick my cheese" image

  • I did more than licking my cheese image
