OPP: Manager Skimming Off The Top
Today’s OPP comes from Candy:
YI!!! I work at a pretty expensive restaurant and I recently discovered that one of my managers has been stealing. I think she knows that I know and because of this, has been making sure I get the best tables night after night. I love the extra cash because it has allowed me to get out of debt and start saving again. On the other hand, I feel guilty because the restaurant's owners are the nicest people in the world and I feel I should tell them what's going on. I'm torn and don't know what to do. If you were me, what would you do?
If Slacker and Steve were her and discovered a manager was stealing, they probably wouldn’t say anything, especially if it was benefiting them in some way. They think she should continue to cash in.
Man, this is a tough one for me. Knowing myself, if I discovered someone was stealing, I wouldn’t have the guts to tell the person they were stealing from just because I would be afraid of the consequences if the person stealing found out and decided to get revenge. In Candy’s case, I would be especially scared since she thinks the person knows she found out. So, I would take the extra cash and play dumb if ever asked. At least she gets some benefit out of it. Right?
What do you think? Do you have any advice for Candy?
