    jewels's MP3 N/A N/A

    So I had this great job, a car and everything. I don’t know what was crossing my mind at the time I guess nothing and in no way am I proud of what I did. I loved my work so I don’t know what the heck I was thinking. Gradually over I would say a month time period I put money on our store gift cards, put no money in the register and went and bought items for myself and friends. the total of what I stole was around $600 it wasn’t all at once and I know what I did was wrong. I lost my job got arrested and have a court date. I’m not sure what’s going to happen yet but the money is paid back already thanks to my parents (now I just have to pay them back). But just a heads up to learn from my mistakes and stupidity. With one stupid little action you can loose all your privileges and your life and it takes work to earn all those things back.

    This same thing happened in my store. This girl was caught "returning" items and putting around $100 on a gift card. Eventually she got caught because she used her employee discount while purchasing items with the gift card. Our lp can track down everything we do through our employee discount card. She was fired and fined. She also told on another guy that had taught her how to do this. He was also fired and fined.
