Upilfridgate

metrohumanx

Created by: metrohumanx

Pronunciation: up-PIL-fridge-ATE alt;UPILFRIDGEATE

Sentence: Hank the Shank was a model citizen, an adequate employee and an active member of his community. Unbeknownst to his co-workers, he was also the office food thief, stealthily swapping his unappetizing mozzarella sticks for someone's imported brie. Hank the Shank would UPILFRIDGEATE his bland baloney sandwiches for a slice of Cap's home made quiche when nobody was looking, and justify it to himself by leaving low-grade generic foodstuffs behind. His moral oversight resulted in the communal refrigerator filling up with industrial-grade munchies which remained untouched and unwanted. With each foodswap, his guilt and fear would grow, but he was unable to stop himself. Hank the Shank knew that if he was caught UPILFRIDGEATING, he would be shunned by his comrades and a fog of suspicion would linger over him like a noxious cloud of escaped freon. To a foodlum like Hank, the bleu cheese was always greener on the other side of the fence.

Etymology: UP+PILFer+refRIDGErate+ATE= UPILFRIDGEATE .....UP:from "upgrade".....PILFER:: steal ; especially : to steal stealthily in small amounts and often again and again;Middle French pelfrer, from pelfre booty.....ATE: past tense of EAT;: to take in through the mouth as food : ingest, chew, and swallow in turn;Middle English eten, from Old English etan; akin to Old High German ezzan to eat, Latin edere, Greek edmenai

Pronunciation: sten/o/grab

Sentence: Always on the run, Steve would swing open the company fridge to stenograb something quick and filling. Didn't matter to him whose name was on what or how big it was written, "KEEP OUT! AND THIS MEANS YOU STEVE!" No. As he had "places to go and people to see," he felt justified in stenograbbing from the fridge at least three times a week. Unfortunately one day, someone filled a danish with chocolate ExLax to teach him a lesson. He now brownbags it daily. (true story from my working days...poor janitor...was out for two days...and NO I didn't do it...)

Etymology: stenograph: A shorthand character/ write in shorthand. grab: Snap up: get hold of or seize quickly and easily.

Oh, Nosila! It wasn't me! I swear! Actually the entire office thought it was really a mean thing the woman did, but she thought he deserved it. Too cruel for me. - lumina, 2008-10-03: 00:08:00

Infilchraid

Created by: astorey

Pronunciation: in-fillch-rayd

Sentence: For the third day in a row, Terry went to grab her lunch from the office fridge to find only some grape stems and a smushed Kashi bar in what was once a cornucupia of delicious food items. She had been foiled by this infilchraider one too many times. She spent the rest of the dayfighting off hunger pangs while rigging up a Web cam in the refrigerator to catch the sneaky and merciless thief. Unfortunately for her, she was fired for violating company policy about Web cams at work, and the HR person who wrote the policy continued to infilchraid people's lunches at will. He did miss Terry, though, or at least her lunch.

Etymology: Infiltrate: to enter or move into an area + filch: to make off with the belongings of others + raid: a sudden short attack.

Sandswicheroo

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: sand switch er roo

Sentence: Hungry Harry made sure he got to the lunchroom early every day, before his co-workers arrived. His mission was to pull the old sandswicheroo trick. He always brought the same thing, a sandwich made of buttered white bread and swapped it for a more interesting concoction. He had previously enjoyed hummus and veggies on pita, pate on rye, hearty chicken salad, roast beef and provolone and his all-time favourite after holidays, turkey sandwiches. He'd swap then eat at his desk and although many complained, no one could prove he had done the old sandswicheroo once again. This was especially galling to his colleagues, who, like he, all worked at FBI Headquarters!

Etymology: Sandwich (two (or more) slices of bread with a filling between them)& Switcheroo (trick where one thing is sneakliy swapped for another)

Good definition,REMI! During 40+ years of work, I found it to be a regular occurrence- probably happening somewhere right now!

It happens to all of us at least once during our working life!

Happened with dip I brought in. Caught him in the act. Wouldn't be so bad if he wasn't double-dipping. And didn't have really poor oral hygiene. And I wasn't sure that it was his first offense and I had actually eaten the dip after him at some point. Yuck!
