Pizza Thief

Pizza is one of my favorite foods. Unhealthy, yes, but tasty. That's why I ordered one last Friday at work when a few others were ordering out. So I had some at work, but I still had quite a bit left to take home for the weekend. Upon walking through the door at home, I realized I had left it at work. So I figured a co-worker would politely place it in the fridge for me and I'd have it Monday (today).

So I got to work today and around lunch time, I checked the fridge. No pizza. At this point I'm getting a little worried... So I went and asked my supervisor (he's usually the last one in the classroom) if he had seen my pizza on Friday afternoon. He gave me a blank look, then said he "yes...." I said, "Well, I realized when I got home that I had forgotten it, and I thought maybe someone would have put it in the fridge for me." He said, "It's gone." He didn't say why it was gone, he just said it was gone. At that point, I started to get a bit upset. Not because of what I paid for the pizza (only $3), but because of the principle. Then I had to drive to McDonald's and get some other unhealthy yet tasty food for lunch.

If you see someone else's food, and you realize that they forgot it, would you a) throw it away, b) eat it, or c) put it in the fridge? I hope most people would do option c. This illustrates one of the MANY reasons that this is the last week at my current job, and I was even more thankful today that there's only 4 more days to go!
