Somebody stole my sandwich!

I wish I was kidding.  I mean, who does that?  I spent today and yesterday in a really nice new building in Crystal City, teaching a training class with a coworker for backup.  I brought my lunch yesterday (turkey sandwich and an apple), but I ended up getting something else at a deli downstairs.  Today, I didn’t bring anything, since I knew my lunch from yesterday would still be in the fridge.  I had a lot of work to do during the lunch break, so with about 20 minutes to go before class started up again, I went to the kitchen to grab my lunch.  Before I even left the kitchen, I looked in the bag and saw my apple, but no sandwich.  WTF?  I checked the fridge.  No sandwich in the fridge.  Who would steal a homemade turkey sandwich?  Maybe something from Subway, but a stranger wouldn’t know how I make a turkey sandwich.  What if I put something weird on it?  Or what if I had to take medicine with food and I’d mixed my mystery medicine in with my sandwich?  WHY WOULD SOMEONE STEAL MY SANDWICH?  Or why only the sandwich and not just throw the bag and apple away or something?  I don’t get it.  I can’t imagine stealing someone’s lunch like that.  Maybe if it was packaged, like a Smart Ones frozen meal or something.  But something homemade?  It wasn’t even exciting.  Turkey with mayo on bread.  How exotic.

So I had an apple for lunch.

    I’m sorry, but that’s really funny. Who puts meds in their turkey sandwiches? How serious is this disease? If I were a sandwich thief, I would NEVER think of that. 🙂 Ultimate retribution: death by sandwich. The autopsy found in the stomach contents a stolen sandwich and unprescribed meds in the blood stream. Serves ya right, sandwich stealer!

    Spokeit, I spent two days in an EPA building on Crystal Drive, across from the Hyatt.

    It was actually my coworker who used the meds in the sandwich scenario as the reason you’d never want to steal someone’s food. Maybe he’s done that? But your comment made me laugh. 🙂 I think I’m going to start calling you “Sandwich Stealer”.
