How much money was in the "supplies" cup so you could replenish?
I already know the answer...

Actually, a few of them periodically give me $10 - $20 without me asking or
overpay for their roasted coffee orders ...

Is that too mean?

Vultures maybe, but were they thieves? Were the three thermoses sitting on
the desk for personal consumption or were they intended to be shared and had
the precedent of sharing them already been previously established?
 
Besides, to me that would mean I would simply have to brew some fresh for
myself rather than having old thermos coffee after the meeting!

Absolutely, that's office squatter's rules.  Anything on your desk is open
to abduction, and if you have just received a "pink slip", then your entire
cubicle/office is "open range" and available for complete depletion before
your chair even gets cold.  I've actually watched that one in action many
times.  Bone-picking actually comes to mind.
A great affirmation of your coffee if that's your home-roast-brew,

Well there are two ways to take care of this.
#1 put up a 'tip jar'  or coffee can or something with a note, if you 
like my coffee, then feel free to help pay for it so I may continue to 
share it with you.  
or
#2  Ex Lax, Lube Oil, Phenothalein, etc etc in one 'special' 
thermos....  you'll know who the thief is then heh.
Sharing is one thing, but when they don't even have the consideration to 
leave you at least one cup, then it's time to teach some manners.....

Wow!  What great vindictive ideas ...
Aaron and Rick got it right ... I do share and it is my homeroast /
homebrew, but leave a guy a cup of coffee if its still before noon!
I was going to put out a tip jar, but option #2 ...

Yeah, that's pretty low.  The bottom cup isn't even always the best one
depending on your brew method, they could at least leave you that one =/ =
 I
am betting a one time warning will end this - 'leave me at least a cup or
free rides on the coffee train are ovah'

http://www.supervisioncam.com- great software for just about any way 
you want to have a PC watch a camera.  I use it to run a 'driveway 
cam' so I can see when packages arrive.

that super cam looks very interesting, I think I might just get the 
program and use it next time one of my dragons lays eggs, or better yet 
when the younguns are hatching so I know and can take care of them w/o 
opening the incubator to see if there are any lil ones or not.
