This Is Why That Video Is Thirty Minutes

, , , , , | Working | December 19, 2018

At the company where I work, all employees are issued a corporate credit card. Before getting it, we have to watch a thirty-minute video explaining the rule that we cannot, under any circumstances, use the card for anything except pre-approved work expenses. They go into great detail, with numerous examples, about how it’s a zero-tolerance policy and how those who violate it are always immediately terminated, with no exceptions. It’s honestly painful to watch, given just how repeatedly they beat you over the head with these two simple points.

We had a new lawyer start at the office on Friday. Lo and behold, on Monday we got a notification that he’d used his company card to buy concert tickets. His justification, “I didn’t think it would be a big deal, as long as I paid it back!”
