46. Lunch Thief
About three years ago, I was working in a pretty big factory. They hired through 5 different temp services, so the place was pretty much like a revolving door. People came and left without any warning, sometimes, it was hard just to find a familiar face.
So when someone started stealing my lunches, everyone became a suspect. After falling victim to the Lunch Box Bandit for a week straight — I’m talking about six 12-hour days with no lunch — I was fed up.
The frustration spawned several evil plans, but I felt the Carolina reaper would give me the fastest and most effective results. I spent all night making the best steak fajitas for lunch the next day.
I finally minced the reaper peppers into a nice pico de gallo and topped my devil fajitas off. I carefully placed my fajitas into a Tupperware bowl, garnished them with cilantro and limes, then covered them with a clear lid to display their beauty.
The next morning, about an hour, after I placed them in the fridge, a woman started screaming for help. I ran to the lunchroom to find the Lunch Box Bandit laying on the floor, gasping for air.
The reaper peppers triggered an asthma attack, and he had to be rushed to the hospital. He never said anything, and neither did I.
