So much for my peaceful day off...
Just got a call from work. All the money is gone.
Apparently, someone (suspect is one of the waitstaff) helped themselves to all the money in the store. Thing is that I've had my suspicions for months, just never had reason to act on them. But, on the same day the Area manager retires from the company, $500+ disappearing in the time frame from when he left the store and when the night shift leader arrived seems like a good reason to act now.
Add in the fact that she just had a trip to the ER and he (the driver she's dating) just smashed the front end of his truck into a telephone pole at the same time that this chunk of money vanishes.
Both of them are likely to be fired, which means the store will be even more short-handed than it already is, which means I'm not likely going to get a peaceful workday for the next month.
