In Your Darkest Extra Hour

| Working | June 26, 2014

(I’ve already worked the daily maximum hours allowed at my job when this occurs.)

Coworker: “Hey, [My Name], I’m gonna need you to come in for a couple of hours to cover [Another Coworker].”

Me: “I’m sorry, man, I can’t. I’m already maxed out. I’ll be in tomorrow, though.”

Coworker: *typing in the background* “It’s cool. I just fixed it so you can come in. I erased the last few hours you worked so you should be cool to do what I need.”

Me: *in disbelief* “You just erased a few hours off my timecard? Do you know how illegal that is?”

Coworker: “Oh, relax. Who’s gonna find out anyway?”

Me: “How about [Boss] when she shows up tomorrow morning?”

Coworker: “You worry too much; she’ll never know. And besides, it’s my word against yours, anyway.”

Me: “No, it’s actually your word against mine; the surveillance system, and the recording of this call that will prove to [Boss] who’s telling the truth.”

Coworker: “…”

Me: “Also, just so you know, those are both backed up off-site and can only be accessed by [Boss] or her boss.”

Coworker: “…”

(Oddly enough, for some reason, that coworker mysteriously quit before the start of next shift.)
