This job's makin' me lose my lunch

sign: MISSING: Jose Ole chimichanga, chicken and cheese, real cheese
chimichanga: Have you seen me?
sign: My poor defenseless frozen chimichanga has disappeared.  I miss it so much.  I last saw it in the freezer the night of Friday, Jan. 30.  By Monday afternoon it was gone without a trace.  I thought it was a safe neighborhood.  If you have any information as to its whereabouts and would like to make things right, please contact me immediately.  Keep your meals safe.  Bless us all.
sign: Jonathan Hironaga cube 093
narration: May this never happen to you.  Don't let your loved ones out of your sight.

As you can see, something terrible has happened.

At my job there is a "kitchen area" with a shared sink, microwave and refrigerator/freezer. Friday night I left the frozen treat you see here in the freezer, trusting we would be reunited come Monday. I returned from the weekend to find out someone else had other ideas.

My cheap frozen microwaveable chimichanga was gone.

I checked the trash cans of all cubicles in the area for evidence; checked the offices too--no assumptions were made. (Necessarily sacrificing thoroughness for cleanliness, it was a visual-only search; I'm not one to root through garbage over a $1 burrito.) Nothing came of my investigation. I was dealing with a pro.

This is the actual sign I made and posted, but with low expectations of a satisfactory outcome. The perpetrators of these crimes rarely come forward voluntarily.

Maybe it was an honest accident and maybe it was extremely petty theft. Sometimes there's nothing you can do about bad luck (or bad coworkers as the case may be and is) but turn it into a joke. I was very short on time for a comic today. Life presented a solution.
