I just found out via text that my son and his roommate got their wallets stolen last night out of their room.
They were on the desk (I told him to keep it with him or in his lock box) and Ash had his debit card with over $130 in it plus the $100 we gave him for a parking pass. He had more than that but I guess he has used it.
Mr. Funny cancelled the card (flagged as stolen) and his driver's license wasn't in it so he is out $100. The card was used by him yesterday for the last time so that was good.
They could have forgotten to lock the door, or they walked off and the door didn't catch and someone walked in right after they went around the corner, (they are pressurized doors and close slowly)
Either way, I wish he didn't leave his stuff out and they were very lucky not to lose their expensive computers or all of the supplies I sent or even his clothes and extras.
I hope this is a learning experience for them.
I do like Carrie's answer of how often they call reflects on how many goodies they get. Nick and I were grocery shopping last night and he wanted me to send Ash some cut-up watermelon and grapes and berries. I am sure that is exactly what he wants! Nick, on the other hand, finds fruit to be better than candy.
I, of course, have more things to worry about now and drinking in the daytime is starting to sound really appealing.
And Kimber, I would love for her to quit or to fire her but she writes the schedule, does the ordering and works long hours sometimes and if she goes, we have to take over (the 2 of us) til we train someone to replace her. We are open 7 days a week and that would really be a pain plus her 2 kids would quit too. We are working out the kinks and doing some hiring and we need a backup plan for if she does quit but Mr. Funny is going to let her know that we are the ones on the mortgage and she needs to enforce our rules and policies and if she doesn't want to, she can move on. Personally, if she left, it would be a blessing in disguise.
We give her a generous salary plus bonuses for watching labor and she would not make that anywhere else.
She was here, along with most of the employees, when we bought the place and the previous owner (who now cooks for us) had warned us about her but we always tried to make her feel trusted and loved.
She really isn't a bad person but she has a husband who was in jail years ago and now "can't find a job" (wants us to give him one- never going to happen) and many other problems plus she smokes like a chimney and has health and weight problems and was dealt a bad life card.
On the up side, I did find some super soft tanks at Walmart yesterday (there are 2 on a hanger and they are $6 for both) made from organic cotton and they are a dream to sleep in.
And I love to sleep.
I really have a lot of things to do and the lawn service is coming (Mr. is busy and the jungle is growing) so I have to go pick up dog toys and the hose and some furniture but I will be back later.
