- A woman got back to the colleague stealing her ‘cream’ by revealing that the bottle has been containing breast milk instead
- She noticed that an officemate has been getting from her bottle for a week already
- The photo has gone viral since then, with more than 11,000 shares on Facebook
It does not matter whether you’re at home or in the office, if you leave a food inside the refrigerator, it was bound to be gone one way or another the next time you check on it. Naughty siblings, craving parents, or simply co-workers who were just too curious to try it would be to blame. It was a frustrating and hunger-inducing experience. Thankfully, someone came up with an ingenious idea to warn those who were tempted to get a free taste – by putting notes or labels on containers and bottles.
This has been a common tactic on declaring one’s own territory in terms of food. However, one woman found out that it was still not enough after she noticed how a sneaky colleague has been stealing from her bottle of ‘cream’ to add to their morning coffee for about a week already.
Determined to teach her officemate a lesson, the woman resorted to make use of the same method but in a more savage sense this time.
On the new note she wrote, it started innocently as she politely greeted the reader (or possible thief) a ‘good morning!’ It continued in a different tone though, appearing to be threatening until she revealed what the bottle actually contained – breast milk. Subsequent to wishing the stealer of enjoying the ‘cream,’ the woman assured that there was no need to worry as it was ‘organic’ and drew a smiley face at the end, signing the tiny paper with ‘B.’

The photo was initially posted on Reddit but spread on other websites soon as well. In a Facebook page called Breastfeeding Mama Talk, the post had become an instant hit as it has been shared for over eleven thousand times.
Reactions of web users vary as some claim to charge the person behind the lessening amount of ‘cream’ for the ‘great nutritional supplement they got for free,’ while others said that it was not unusual to make use of breast milk as a coffee creamer.
Coffee cream is a lighter type of cream mixed in a coffee drink to have a more flavorful experience. Others refer to it as non-dairy coffee creamer with brands such as Nestle, Carnation, and Coffee Mate producing it.
