Thousands of social media lovers just couldn't get enough of his lengthy Twitter thread about his co-worker's missing shrimp fried rice and the person who got caught stealing it. 

Starting off the story at 1pm on Friday, Zak explained, 'Co-worker got his lunch stolen and they’ve agreed to let him watch the security camera tape. This is the most excited I’ve ever been at any job ever. Ever.'


While the initial tweet garnered over 277,000 likes and 4,300 comments in one day alone, Zak continued to detail the progress of the heinous crime.

After guessing that the lunch crime was a 'professional hit no doubt', turns out the shrimp fried rice thief was a little closer to desk than he thought - the lady sitting next to him in fact. Ludicrous!  

And to add salt to the wound (and empty stomach no doubt), she didn't even eat the thing!

Zak added, 'According to the video, this psychopath DIDNT EVEN EAT THE FOOD. She took it out of the fridge and threw and buried it in the trash.

'Her motives remain completely unknown. In lieu of what he saw on the tape he has decided to not to press the matter anymore. I can’t say I blame him. We don’t know what this women’s fully capable of.' 

Zak's thread, made up of 23 tweets went viral with thousands of tweeters locked in to the end to read about the lunch thief's chilling reaction afterwards.
