Cafeteria managers in an Indian city say that sticky-fingered customers  keep stealing spoons and that the losses have reached epic proportions.

The strange trend seemingly sweeping through the city has left several  different restaurants wiped out when it comes to their spoon inventory.

One particularly hard hit spot has lost as astounding 600 of their  spoons in recent weeks, necessitating a whole new supply to keep  business going.

"We have no idea what is happening. They are just disappearing," bemoaned one restaurant worker.
