Office politics are tough, but navigating the shared office refrigerator can sometimes get downright nasty. People put things in there and assume others will leave it alone, but that’s not always the case.
One new mom apparently had enough with the person (or persons) who kept stealing her Nestle Coffee Mate Natural Bliss coffee creamer and she decided to get some revenge. She was sick of seeing her creamer run out, so she left a little surprise for the thief. She wrote a little note on a post-it, and stuck it to the bottle that was sure to give the culprit quite a surprise. It read, “Good Morning! To whomever has been enjoying my coffee creamer all week… Surprise!!! you’ve been drinking my BREAST MILK Hope you’ve enjoyed. Cheers! -B”
She then left a positive note at the end, “P.S. It’s organic. So no worries”

We’re not sure if the woman did actually replace the creamer with her breast milk, but just the thought of someone drinking it, unbeknownst to them, is pretty awful. And giving up any of that liquid gold is something that would be hard to do! Hopefully it was a joke and she was just playing some mind games on the thief. It would seem strange that the person didn’t notice the difference between coffee creamer and breastmilk. Either way, it’s a lesson that won’t be soon lost, that’s for sure!
Many people found this little life lesson hysterical, and felt like the thief got what he deserves. Go to the store and buy your own creamer, or go without if you’re too cheap or lazy to do so is the overwhelming feeling of the group. However, others were very bothered that anyone would do this, and expressed their disgust at someone ingesting someone else’s bodily fluids.
What do you think? Are items in a company fridge fair game unless they’re labelled, or should people assume that nothing is theirs unless they actually purchased it and placed it there?
One thing is for sure, there’s one less person enjoying the office coffee these days, and the local coffee shop has one more regular customer!
