One way to stop a co-worker from taking your lunch out of the refrigerator is to label the bag “stool sample,” as one joke has it. “Someone stole @whaleysh’s lunch. Sorry bud. In the future label it ‘stool sample’ like I used to and NO one will touch it. I promise” was cited on Twitter on January 11, 2012. “No one has stolen my lunch at work since I started labeling it ‘Stool Sample’” was cited on Twitter on May 16, 2016.

I have never understood why people think stealing food isn’t really stealing. I guess some people must be compulsive eaters and this is just a symptom. Otherwise, I don’t get it.
I think simply labeling the food as something else might help in some cases. My mom worked in a lab and would slap biohazard stickers on paper bags containing tins of homemade cookies she didn’t want my dad to eat. Maybe if you just put your lunch in a brown paper bag and labeled it “stool sample--due at 5:50 p.m. today,” no one would go near it.

label it “stool sample”.
Too high a probability he’ll confuse it with his actual stool sample, and ruin his last piece of Texas Toast.
