Emily’s lunch had been stolen from the refrigerator three days in a row.
Late Friday morning, gagging, with a red face, the boss tore from his office and raced toward the water cooler.
A tablespoon of cayenne folded discretely between the ham and cheese on her sandwich had flushed out the thieving culprit rather nicely.

Very cool 55. What a terrific idea. Too bad I don't work anymore. I might have tried this myself. Maybe! :)

I love it. Once at work, I had a bowl of candy on my desk and someone always ate it all on the second shift. My desk was way over in the corner by itself and the bowl, or dish was not out in plain sight. I once put cat food treats in it and the next day I checked and they ate it too. The guys were animals.
