Because It’s Funny
Anyone who works in an office setting and shares a refrigerator with their co-workers knows to write their name or initials on their food. Just in case. I did this while living in the sorority house because no one thought twice to take an egg from a carton that wasn’t marked and next thing you knew, you only have two eggs left. Not cool. That also happened with tampons, but let’s stay on course. Name or initials on your food – same goes for the work place. Unless it’s marked “community”. Those are the rules.
But some don’t like to play by the rules. These people, the rule breakers, want to live on the edge and be wild and crazy. So they never bring in their own lunch or condiments. They “borrow” food even though it can’t really ever be returned. Because it’s digested. And that gross. You can keep it.

It makes me laugh. But I don’t use Amy’s hot sauce. For obvious reasons. The warning is clearly marked.
