doctornamtab if we look at ourselves honestly, most employees are thieves and they don't even know it. every paid minute an employee is on the clock
drawing wages that is spent lingering at the water cooler, taking personal calls or using the Internet for personal business is theft.
many people put paper clips or pens in their pockets to take home, little things they feel are irrelevant and will never be noticed. that is theft.
some workers will use office equipment (copiers, fax, etcetera) for non-work related business. some workers will toss their outgoing bill payment mail
into the company basket to get free postage. that is theft.
there are employees that arrive late, take longer lunch than is given, or sneak out early. that is theft.
i suspect many people who are condescending to you may be guilty of theft themselves but they rationalize it away. a lie is a lie. theft is theft.
i once had a co-worker who ripped our employer for everything he could. his logic was that they deserved it because they way they ran their business.
i worked there a long time, and it truly did seem they went out of their way to avoid making a profit. we wondered if the (USA headquarters we worked
at) was nothing more than a huge tax write-off for the 'mother' company in Japan.
the bad thing about theft is it catches up to you. one may think they are slick and they do not even realize other people notice. employers have
cameras everywhere. when people find out they can't trust you, well that is a sad thing. you take the risk if you feel its worth it, i'm sure you
realize there may be a price to pay one day.
