The great peanut butter mystery

I came home yesterday to my bathroom completely torn apart, which was expected. They had to rip out the old tub, shower, sink and one wall. What was not expected was the use of my peanut butter. I found a jar of peanut butter on my counter open with what looked like finger imprints in it.

The logical conclusion is that someone was hungry and ate my peanut butter. I'm ruling out the cats since they have no fingers and do not like peanut butter. That leaves the contractors. I don't even know what to say because it's so weird. Who just uses someone else's peanut butter? I'm too much of a wuss to ask. I threw it out because I'm not eating finger tainted peanut butter.

Today I have put a bag of pistachios where the peanut butter was left yesterday. I'm conducting a nut experiment to see if they get eaten.

  2. Oh Willis... always showing your squished face!! Haha. Ginny... this was hilarious, I am a little more evil than you, I would definitely be hatching a secret plan whereby someone gets a little spiked with a little something. THEN you will have your culprit! But he might either be shatting in your bathroom or dribbling on your carpet... Love Elle xo

  3. That's actually a rather cunning plan to leave a different kind of nut out. My guess is that they won't get eaten though. Still, who, as well as eating someone else's peanut butter rather randomly, does it with their fingers?

  5. What is wrong with people!? My parents hired a plumber to install a new water heater one day. My mom came home at lunch to find a dude eating a sandwich in our kitchen (one that he made with our food, not his own), and he informed my mom that we were now out of mayo. WTF?!? Hopefully they hurry it up and quit stealing your peanut butter.

  6. That's freaking hilarious. I can't imagine going into someone's home and eating anything of theirs that wasn't offered to me!

    Maybe it was just a quickie protein pick me up?

  8. It's weird, but peanut butter can be used as a lubricant and gets rid of sticky things...

    Seriously. I have no idea why I know that.

    1. Someone told me that. I'm hoping that's what it was.

  9. This is funny. I used to have a roommate who would eat ALL of my peanut butter. Time after time. Even if I hid it or put my name on it.

  10. You should have put the peanut butter in the bathroom for when they come back. Only mildly passive aggressive. But also, that is disgusting.
