Office worker 1 goes out on Friday lunchtime to the local supermarket. Right place, right time OW1 is there when 2 sirloin steaks are reduced from £10 to £5 and snaps them up. They have a sell by date of tomorrow.

Back in the office they are put into the communal fridge.

Time to go home they're not there!

On Monday Office worker 2 approaches OW1 to say how sorry they were they had picked up OW1s steaks, there were 2 of the supermarkets bags in the fridge on Friday and they picked up the wrong one by accident.

Should OW2

Offer to replace the steaks

Offer £10, the cost to replace the steaks

Or £5, the cost.


This actually happened to me, I’ll not tell you just now which worker I was.

Get them back and eat them :agree:.

Ignore the date they will be fine.Far too much emphasis put on sell by/use by/best by dates resulting in tons of good food being wasted every week.

£5 paid so £5 to repay, unless they offer to replace the steaks for you.

:grr:

******* chored the steaks. OW1 could have had a romantic dinner planned and the lack of quality meat could have ruined his chances of getting his nat king.

Never mind the offer, what about compensation :agree:

Are you suggesting that the thief offers to ride the person they stole the steaks from?

Accept a Fiver if I was the other.

If OW2 ate the steaks then he should give OW1 a tenner, if not should just give him his steaks back.

However, as someone else mentioned, in OW1's position I would tell OW2 just to give me a fiver.

Buy 2 replacement steaks.

The price is irrelevant.

Forgot about this, thanks for the replies. :agree:

It happened to me a few years ago, I don’t know what brought it back to mind.

Anyway it was my steaks that had disappeared and, having found them, it was going to be part of a special meal that night :wink: . We went out instead, which wasn’t my plan! :grr:

On the Monday morning it was the talk of the wash hoose :blah: , pretty much along the same lines as here. I’d also heard that someone in another part of the building was almost bragging about her ‘free’ meal. She wasn’t going to do anything! :grr::grr: She wasn’t well liked in the office anyway and had to be told by workmates that what she had done just wasn’t right. :wtf:

So she came through, said sorry (as though she really meant it :bitchy:) and flung a fiver on my desk, turned tail and as she was walking out one of my colleagues shouted something like ‘What about the money for the other steak?” to which there was no reply. :bye:

The gossip lasted for weeks after she left … not long after.
