A coworker was making himself sandwiches on the night shift when the cafeteria was closed. They warned him the first time and fired him the second. He was making $80K a year.

Sounds harsh but if you caught him stealing something he could easily afford on any wage (like a honey bun) what do you think he was stealing and not getting caught?

These sort of things are usually the tip of the iceberg, or maybe you caught it before it escalated. It starts with little things and before you know it laptops are showing up on ebay

I knew a guy who worked as part of a 2 man night floor cleaning crew in a Wal Mart that closed at 10pm. Just the 2 of them all night.

In about 4 months he probably fleeced $5,000 of junk or more. He was fired for getting a drink from the fountain machine in the food court and not paying for it.

Even had him on camera for it :rofl:

Cheaper to just fire him, rather than build a case against him and take it to trial for whatever else he probably stole.

Open Twinkies would have prevented this.

Was it at least a Morton's Frozen Honey Bun? That'd be worth it.

Back in HS, I could eat 4 of those suckers for breakfast. The only thing better today is the bakery ones at the donut shop in town.

It's not about the $1 in merchadise, it's about this individual's willingness to steal. As has been mentioned, what else are they capable of justifying in their own mind?

way back in the day i worked at a carwash and saw a guy get fired on the spot for taking a single quarter out of a customers ashtray. he said he just put it in his pocket to vacuum and then he was going to put it right back but the manager told him as soon as he put it in his pocket it was theft and a firing offense with no questions asked.

at the same car wash i was vacuuming a caddy and clogged the hose under the seat. i checked and found a thick envelope full of cash stuck on the end. i immediately went to the mangers office and had the owner paged and then made him count the money there in front of my boss. there was 15k cash. if they were willing to fire somebody over a quarter i damned sure wasn't taking any chances with a was of cash like that.

I worked 3rd in a grocery store right out of high school. The stock crew was stealing the place blind. They would even order stuff like spaghetti sauce and diapers by the case so they could steal them.

I worked 3rd shift in another grocery store where the other cashier was stealing cigarettes and dip by the case. She would also "ring" up groceries for her friends so that a $500 order cost them $20. ATF arrested her in the parking lot while she was putting a case of Marlboros in her car. She would steal about four cases a night.

I found out later that they had watched me, too, but that the worst thing I did was read magazines on the clock between customers during the dead hours after I had all the stocking I could do done.

When I went to the Army Whirlybird skool there was a guy every night on QC and always doing crap details and he had his wings. One day I asked some butter bar what is up with Mr. Happy. He said the guy is getting kicked out of the Army for stealing a Butterfinger from K Mart. :faint: I saw him every night for ovrer 3 months then he was gone.

Low dollar thefts will add up over time...The Advance Auto I work at took a $420 hit just on Mountain Dews & Pepsi's from employee's stealing them & another employee giving them to commercial shops...While $1.89 may not seem like much up front, it adds up over time.

When I worked at Walmart, a cashier was accused of stealing a donut. She said they dragged her in for questioning and all (to the office at Walmart not "downtown"), said they were going to fire her. Thankfully she dug around in the trashcan and found the receipt.

Years ago I fired two of my managers for falsifying their time sheets. This was back in the day when we still used paper time sheets. During my interview process I always mention that this would be grounds for immediate termination. They thought I was joking....... I wasn't.

They just couldn't comprehend that putting hours down that you never worked was stealing.

The question isn't what he got caught stealing, the question is what did he not get caught stealing? If he steals once, he's willing to do it again. So why run the risk of him stealing something worth more than $1?

The grocery store I worked at counted the cigs every night. I'm sure that must have been based on past stealing.

Had someone buy land near me when I was a kid and I was riding my horse everywhere. Felt weird when the cops told me they had been renting a house at the end of the road, and watching everyone because that landowner was growing MJ. Told me they knew I wasn't involved, and to let them know if I had any info.

That reminds me of a tobacco farmer I know. He was listening to the police scanner one night and was thinking they sounded like they were close to his field. He finally rode out there to see the cops getting up a lot of marijuana...right next to his field. He said he never even noticed it when he was working his crop.

Marijuana crop, not addictive, kills no one, cops pulling up plants in the dark.

Back when I was an Operations Manager for a prominent sporting goods store, we had a janitor that came in a couple times a week to clean the bathrooms and floors. I let him in the store as usual then went about my business. Well one day, the district loss prevention guy came in and went to his office that has the camera monitor in there. He later calls me to his office and shows me a tape of the janitor walking over to a register and taking a 10 cent piece of candy out of the bucket and eating it without paying for it. He brought the guy in the office and fired him on the spot. I pleaded with the LP guy to just give him another chance but he dropped the hammer on him. I felt so bad for the guy...

When I used to work for a supermarket I saw lots of guys fired for stealing. One, a butcher, lost a $50K a year job because he stole a 6 pack of beer. When I was working the nightshift the crew went on break, and there were 5 0r 6 of us standing in line at the register to pay for or food. A couple guys opened up their sodas and started drinking while they were waiting too check out. Security busted them, and they were fired. They had every intention of paying, they just started drinking it before they paid.

The security guy got his ass kicked in the parking lot at the end of the shift. Strangely, no one heard or saw a thing.

Back before my dad retired from the Army and we were stationed at Ft McClellan (now closed, this would have been early 90s) I was going into the PX one day and saw the MPs escorting a young bootcamp recruit out, the guy tried to steal some of those elastics that you use to blouse your pants into your boots and a small can of boot polish.

For something like that if he really was short on money I'm sure something could have been worked out or had he asked almost anyone probably would have bought them for him. I just wonder if he wanted the 'thrill' of stealing.

I've never shoplifted even a nickel's worth of stuff, but many times I have opened a drink while waiting in line at a convenience store. I didn't even think twice about that being wrong and still don't.

Sounds like they may have wanted those guys gone anyway and that was just a foolproof excuse.

I have been told by a student, (caught stealing on campus) that the politicians in DC do it every day, so it must be OK.
After reviewing the tape, seeing her take the laptop, I tried to instill on her how serious this was. She tried to pull that "wait till my parents get a hold of you" bull.
She was taken to the Campus Police Office, then to the Magistrates office. She was charged. Her parents were NOT happy with her.
