Corporate Stupid

In order to combat the fact that my co-workers are thieving scum, signs have been placed on the two refrigerators in our microscopic break room. Instead of saying something sensical, such as “Stop stealing shit you thieving assholes,” they read:


Do not take items that you did not purchase.

This confuses me. Am I not allowed to take the home-cooked meal that I brought. Alternately, can I just take whatever I want and leave some money behind. Sometimes it’s better to just say what you mean.
