A pregnant woman got her colleague fired after she was caught stealing her lunch from the office fridge.



Writing on Reddit, the anonymous woman revealed she was left with no choice but to check the cameras in her office after her food she was bringing in from home was constantly getting stolen.

Despite her efforts to deter the thief with notes asking them to stop, the lunch went missing every day.

She wrote: ''I began labelling my food hoping that would deter the thief. It didn't. Eventually, I put a note on the fridge that said: 'Please stop taking my food. I am pregnant and breastfeeding and this is negatively affecting my health.'

''The thief was a middle-aged woman who doesn't seem to like me. She is making triple what I am making, if not more. After a week of this (I'd been bringing sandwiches and keeping them at my desk to hold me over) I had the IT guy send me a screen-grab of her stealing, one from each day.

'''Lunch Thief was up for a promotion. She's near the executive level, and once you get this high up, the interviews involve execs from headquarters flying down to meet up with the execs in our office to sit in on presentations from the interviewees.

''She was terminated. I didn't want her to get fired, I just wanted her to stop. If they'd ever talked to me, I wouldn't have wanted to get her fired.''
