About a decade ago, I worked for a chemical company in New Jersey. I worked in the technical service department which comprised two of the approximately 60 labs. Nice place to work, good benefits, good wages, etc.. However, there was one "not-so-nice" thing about it; if you put your bagged lunch in the cafeteria refrigerator, it might NOT be there come lunch time. So, I ate out most of the time because it was VERY ANNOYING to have my lunch stolen. Now, I understand that cultures vary, but I never did quite get it that it was "OK" to steal someone else's meal. This reminded me of a passage from Paul's letter to the Thessalonians...
WEB: II Thessalonians Chapter 3
 For you know how you ought to imitate us. For we didn’t behave ourselves rebelliously among you,  neither did we eat bread from anyone’s hand without paying for it, but in labor and travail worked night and day, that we might not burden any of you;  not because we don’t have the right, but to make ourselves an example to you, that you should imitate us.  For even when we were with you, we commanded you this: “If anyone will not work, neither let him eat.”
OK, there are times when anyone can be strapped for funds; so I can understand the need for food stamps and welfare (personally, I think it should be limited to a two year period) but that does not make stealing acceptable. A something-for-nothing attitude will eventually bankrupt this country. I learned early in life that if I wanted something I was expected to work for it. Whether it was money for a date, a new shirt or even a dress pair of shoes, I knew it would be a waste of time to ask because the answer was always a NO! I think the inventor of the security lunch bags is a true genius, but I just wish I had known about them in New Jersey!!!
