From Under A Rock

All is not well in Lunch Lady Land. Over the past weeks I have noticed food missing. A packet of cookies here, a granola bar there. I mean it's thoughtless but no big deal. So my theory yesterday was to put the open boxes into the refrigerator since it has a lock. Case closed.
This morning I walk in all happy and skippy. It is not until I start setting up for the kids do I realize something is wrong. An entire case of Oreos was gone. That's 120 packs, a total of 240 cookies. What kind of scumball steals from a free lunch program? Who takes cookies from kids who would otherwise go hungry? I hope Karma gets that person. I try not to wish violence on anyone. But I hope that at a minimum they get a tremendous tummy ache and at maximum they fall off a curb and skin their knees. The sad part is that they will never get how terribly low their actions were. Poo.
