what do you do when someone else keeps eating your food, even after you've already asked them nicely not to?
You sad, sad motherfucker
eat their food
Just tell them you'll rip their fucking throat out and stab it with a fucking semi-frozen pickaxe then blend it and feed it to your cat, then rip their eyes out with a vaccum cleaner and stamp on them till they burst all over their blind ugly face and drip into their mouth. Then tell them you'll hack at their neck until the main artery is ruptured and that you'll make wine from their blood.
Either that or leave a little post-it note on the fridge.
Also, do whatever you can to ensure you don't live with this person for any longer than you need to.
she was a massive bullying bitch and so it never really got solved.
things i should ahve doen and you could try -
hide all her food and when she/he confrontys you about it say you'll give it back to her /him if she/he promsies to stop eating your food and tell em if they do ti again you're going to throw their food out completely
I hate conflict, especially in your own home.
Can't you just talk to them about it in a friendly way, tell them that you can either share all food and the cost of it all or have entirely seperate food and if anything is 'borrowed' it has to be replaced in a day otr something?
he'd come back pissed with all of his moronic football buddies and they'd plough through anything they could find in the fridge/freezer.
He actually had the audacity to say 'If my mates want a snack I'm not going to stop them!'.
After at least 10 increasingly blunt warnings and one fight, we broke his door open and took his television, laptop, hifi and anything else worth anything to the local Cash Converters-esque shop and distributed his clothes around charity shops. He had something of a breakdown and moved in with his parents.
you are a bad person
ok, the response was childish, but that guy's breakdown sounds like it's more to do with his general anti-social behaviour (disclaimer-I am massively speculating and there may be a very straightforward explanation)
no one should be saying he deserved to have a breakdown.
i was just saying that it can't be assumed it was directly due to the food stealing punishment.
and obviously the mature and reasonable option would have been to talk to some welfare/tutor person, but would that have been realistic for uni?
the only arrangement that works is to live with people you trust to buy their fair share of food and share everything
personally I'd shit in their pillow
of hiding all their food etc. Although it might just mean they eat MORE of your food because they don't have any....
I no thinking gud with brane on sundae
No-one really steals any food in either of the places I've been in.
it's always been hey, if you're out of something just borrow some of mine and when I run out of something I'll ask to borrow some of yours. It all evens out.
I live with hippies, clearly.
This is pretty much how it works in our flat, although obviously taking the last of someone's whatever is not really on, so we wouldn't do that. But if it was all the time, without being asked or anything, and if it was expensive stuff and they never had the same thing in for ME to steal back from them, I'd get a bit annoyed with it. It's all about respec', innit
and eaten all of my nice food so she can't.
I love him.
1. Restrict yourself to a certain type of food eg biscuits
2. Actually get caught a couple of times and play it like you're some kind of lovable Artful Dodger type character. "Blimey you've got my guvnah!"
3. Every so often bring some extra snacks for the living room or whatever. Obviously not anywhere near as often as you steal the biscuits.
and kaboom! You can now just plain old eat other people's biscuits without having to even bother sneaking around. If you're really good the other people in the house will start buying an extra packet of biscuits just for you! That's when you know you are the best. Good luck!
but take relatively small amounts from the middle of packets/cartons/bottles
get a little fridge and keep it in my room. after shouting repeatedly at the offender. post-it notes don't work.
Having house shared for years and years, in general if people are food stealers they won't change, so either get a fridge for your room, move or accept it I guess.
Cut your wrist open.
Spray the words 'DO YOU SEE WHAT YOU'VE DRIVEN ME TO?' on their walls with the last of your arterial blood spurting from your body.
Leave your corpse for them to discover.
where I was the victim of relentless pizza pilfering by Bernie Taupin's son. True story.
It's much better than everyone buying their own stuff; works out cheaper for all and no awkward 'Uh.. Can you replace the milk you stole?' confrontations.
Although for it to work, you have to get on with your flatmates reasonably well and know that there's not going to be one person who takes advantage by not doing their fair share of the shopping and eating more than their fair share of the food.
I have no food in my house...they do steal my beers sometimes tho
