Nurse with bad ethics

  1. 6
    Ok, a coworker brought in some bagels and cream cheese at the start of her shift, which happens to be night shift. Two dozen bagels, not sure how much that costs. A day nurse, on her way home, stopped in the breakroom and decided to take ALL the bagels and cream cheese home. Someone stopped her and said "Nurse x" just brought these in. Nurse Shady said "if they are in the breakroom they are fair game".

    Now it has come to light that whenever there is food served, nurse shady often grabs 6 subs or whatever and tucks em in a bag to take home so she does not have to cook. She has gotten chewed out by a medical device rep once for taking a whole pizza that was for a lunch and learn that had not happened yet. She is also suspected in stealing cans of soda etc from others lunches but no one has seen her in the act.

    Would you trust Nurse Shady? I must also explain that she drives a Cadillac SUV and her husband is a CPA. They just got back from a Hawaii vacation, they are not broke and trying to feed their children. I think she is a theif and is probably stealing a lot more than just food.

    She seems to show no remorse and even awareness that her actions are totally off-the-wall. Would I trust a person like that? Of course not.

    Also, as an aside: A person who drives a Caddy and goes on vacations could easily broke because he/she's stupid with money.

    nurse shady, needs a dosage of my medicine, let me explain i was moonlighting at a facility for a wk. and every day my lunch would disappear, even though it had my name on it. long story short, i baked some brownies however, i used a whole box of ex-lax laxatives and waited to see the perpetrator run the whole night to the bathroom. needless to say, from there on she never stole my lunch :d

    Never in a million years would I trust Nurse Shady. If I was the NM I would find some way to can her. If she thinks that it's okay to hoard food and not share fairly, what else does she do or not do. It's pretty low to think taking all the food is okay, especially when she's not hurting for money!

    That's so funny- I was just having a conversation about this today. I have heard that in work settings where there are commual refrigerators it's like a common thing for there to be "that guy" who steals from people's lunches. I find this behavior completely baffling and it's even harder for me to wrap my mind around the idea that it's *common*!

    What is WRONG with people??

    Especially since she got stopped with the bagels and had a chance to say, "Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realize," save face, and return them. This person has no ethics at all. This is sociopathic behavior.
