Really Dani? Complaining about your employer while feeding your 'addiction to food & shelter' is stealing? As in prosecutable and possible time in jail stealing? Unprofessional I buy, grounds for termination - certainly; but stealing?
I respect Manager/Career Tools's commitment to presenting the reality of the workplace and if this is the prevailing attitude, I am glad to be forewarned, but it seems a bit extreme to equate this behavior with criminality. This seems an extension of the mindset (e.g. Dave Ramsey) that being late ten minutes is stealing from the company while working an exempt employee late with no notice is not stealing from them despite the unequal power in the relationship.
Thanks for hearing me out. I'm obviously bothered enough by this that I've nixed the chance of ever working for anyone that reads this forum because I've branded myself with a Scarlet 'T' for Troublemaker. I'd be interested in the opinion of other forum members.
