I would have just taken it back without asking. As I was taking it back, I would have said "Please don't take my things".

I have done this at my own job plenty of times.

Not only were you not rude, you were a lot nicer about it than I would have been.

I would have gone in to her office, unplugged my heater, picked it up, and then on my way out, I would have told her that I didn't appreciate her taking something that belongs to me without my permission.

I would have done exactly the same, Mr. Tango, and have.  Though it was my fan that was misappropriated, not a heater.

i agree.

i get annoyed when people borrow my company-owned stapler and "forget" to return it to my desk, but to take *my* property? that is beyond rude. and supervisor was completely out of line.

By definition, yes, stealing is rude.

The matter has been sufficiently addressed, ergo, thread closed.
