In case anyone is keeping track, it was 109 here in Hooterville yesterday. Luckily, I was inside most of the day. Here's a question for you. Suppose that you work in a place where a coworker, Larry, is charged with locking up at night, when the business closes. Another coworker, Katie, arrives early in the morning and unlocks the doors. The manager comes to work after the business is open and leaves before it closes, so she never opens or closes. One morning Katie comes in and finds that Larry forgot to lock the door the past evening when he left. She checks the business over and finds nothing out of order. No harm, no foul, as they say. What does Katie do? A) Nothing. It turned out okay. B) Tell Larry what happened so he can take better care in the future. C) Call the manager and tell her what happened, "just in case". D) B and C. I'm none of these people, but I know what happened. What do you think? Lastly, I've posted before that I love the old-time cowboy music and poetry. I was looking at some things today and I found Baxter Black's tribute to his old dog. I was reminded of my friend Reya and her dog Jake. For Reya and Jake. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

She flipped out and tore Larry a new one in front of everyone, if I know my managers.

I'm betting on D. But if I'd been Katie I would have taken the A train...

B

I'd pick B (to do something and cause the least waves).

B is what I would want to do, but I'm a tattler (can't help myself) so I'd probably do C too. Be glad you don't work with me!

Julia said...

Depends how much I like Larry. I'd probably pick B and breathe a big sigh of relief because nothing was missing.

Steve said...

I'm opting for D, which is the option I probably would have chosen myself. I'd hate to rat Larry out, but at the same time, I wouldn't want to be the one who DIDN'T tell the manager, you know?

Oh man. I can't believe I missed this, so interested in the ethical dilemma was I.

DUH.

Thank you, Merle. Really it means so much it does.

That's some 'stache that dude sports. Wow.

That Baxter Black tribute is AWESOME!!! Thank you for posting it. I had the privilege of knowing Jake, and I think that he would have approved.

Thank you also for visiting the Bodhi Tree yesterday, and for what you said while there. I would have thought that most people would have written me off as a Blogger by now, and I'm so pleased to find that not to be the case.
