A distraught young woman stirred up Redditors recently when she shared the harrowing tale of how she nearly killed a coworker. The full story that follows is full of finger-pointing and misunderstandings. Buckle up!
She Has a Lot Going On
OP is a young woman who works a pretty standard day job in an office setting.
Some nights, she helps her friend with her Thai restaurant.
She Got Him to Give up the Secret
One of the Thai chef’s specialties is a peanut sauce that OP just can’t get enough of, even though she’s very picky about what she eats.
After some well-placed begging, she convinced the chef to share the recipe.
It’s One of Her Staples
OP was able to make the peanut sauce well enough at home to satisfy her tastes, so she has it occasionally.
She pours it over noodles or stir fry and takes it to her day job for lunch about once a week.
It Hits All Your Senses
One of the things that OP loves is the rich peanut smell, which really gets her juices flowing.
Her Food Was Gone
The company has recently hired a new group of employees, and OP has noticed that her lunches started disappearing.
She didn’t have any proof other than her food was gone.
There Was a Thief
Sometimes, OP would open her lunch box to find certain items missing, and other times, the whole lunch would be gone.
The Secret Sauce Went Missing
On one recent Thursday, OP took noodles covered with her special peanut sauce for her lunch.
But when she went to the fridge at lunch, the entire Tupperware container was gone.
She Made Do
OP was upset, but one of her friends shared a pizza with her, so at least she didn’t go hungry.
He Said She Was a Criminal
A few days later, after the weekend, OP’s boss called her into his office and accused her of trying to poison other members of the staff.
She Knew It Was a Problem
It seems that the boss’s daughter, who was one of the new employees, had “borrowed” OP’s noodles and went into anaphylactic shock.
She was severely allergic to nuts, which the girl and her dad already knew.
He Wanted Her to Pay
Luckily, the girl had an epi pen and was able to use it, but she still ended up hospitalized and struggling to breathe.
OP’s boss demanded that she pay for his daughter’s bills.
She Was the Thief
OP told her boss that the idea she should have to pay was ridiculous.
His daughter stole her lunch!
It wasn’t like OP deliberately fed nuts to someone with an allergy.
They Turned On Her
But now the boss is being hateful about the whole thing and has told OP’s coworkers about the incident.
Some of them witnessed for themselves and are giving OP mean glances and throwing snide remarks.
It Wasn’t Her Mistake
OP’s friend has already offered her a full-time job at her restaurant, but OP doesn’t feel like she should have to quit for a mistake that wasn’t hers.
She Could Have Died
But OP also feels kind of bad that the boss’s daughter had such a bad reaction. She could have died, which would have been on OP’s conscience forever.
Reddit commenters understand why OP feels bad for what happened to the boss’s daughter, but they remind her that she didn’t do anything wrong.
It was the girl who put herself in danger, they say, especially considering that she should have been able to smell the peanuts as soon as she opened the container.
