Worker shares PSA on how to keep coffee creamer at work

Recently, a TikToker went viral after sharing the various ways they tried to stop their co-workers from stealing their creamer. The first video involves adding soap to the milk jug; The latter iterations included mustard and apple cider vinegar.

Now another TikToker has gone similarly viral for sharing his tip to make sure his milk jug doesn’t get stolen – and a warning against attempting stunts like the ones in the videos above.

In a video with over 187,000 views, user @urgaybestfrannnx10 gives what he calls “unsolicited advice” and hints that the original poster for his prank could face legal trouble.

“I literally put tape around where you unscrew it and then put tape over it,” he explains. “If someone drinks [the original poster’s creamer]and they get really sick, you can get in a lot of trouble.”

“Stick it up, write your name on it, and make it difficult for them to get in,” he advises. “You will stop. I promise.”

While commenters below the video tried to claim that the woman had her right to add whatever she wanted to her own milk jug, @urgaybestfrannnx10’s statement of legal issues arising from this seems accurate.

After a video showing a woman adding laxatives to her creamer went viral, a lawyer stepped in to issue a similar warning.

“It’s a crime, don’t do it,” the attorney said at the time. “It doesn’t matter if you write ‘do not use’, you know they will drink it.”

“If you’re doing it with the intention of someone drinking it and getting sick, it’s illegal,” the attorney added. “Having your name on it will not be a defense.”

Still, some users at @urgaybestfrannnx10 have offered their own stories of similar workplace revenge.

“Some kept eating my lunch so I put a ghost pepper in my soup and it turned out to be an HR lady,” claimed one commenter.

“We had a lady at work switch hers to orange juice for a bit,” claimed another. “Obvious enough that people don’t drink it, but upsetting when you’re not expecting it.”

“I just filled an empty one with water after I was done with that and put it back, that fixed that,” shared a third.
