In his defense, if I made such a monumentally stupid mistake like that, I'd probably have to spend some time at a bar too.

I hope he enjoys his new job making license plates.
 
2013-03-28 10:22:47 AM
His ass is fried, extra crispy.

So the sports cars doors were stolen?
 
2013-03-28 10:52:47 AM
That should be FORMER KFC employee
 
2013-03-28 11:12:43 AM
That's $50 he'll never get back.

Did anyone try out their pot pie...

I figured I would give it a shot.  So it's just the pie crust on top, nice and flakey... but the rest is the tin.  And the damn "pie" isn't filled up all the way.  And the damn thing is freaking hot.  You have to wait an hour to even try to eat it without burning yourself.  And they freaking charge way too much for what you get...

Serves you right for trying to consume KFC.

Most money I've ever carried at any one time was when I worked for a retail company. I was still in highschool and for one reason or another the store manager trusted me to carry that nights deposit which had to the tune of around 90k dollars in it. How you could trust a 16 year old with that amount of cash astounds me to this day.

Long story short, people in retail and food service are often pretty dumb

Have you never had a pot pie before? What did you expect, some sort of french culinary dream?

Crappy franchise owner to boot, I'd guess.

When I worked chain store minimum wage job in high school, if I closed I had to follow the manager to the bank and witness the deposit (well *a* deposit anyway).  Less likely employee is gonna be jumped at 11 PM in a bank parking lot and tends to discourage stuff like this from happening.  Crazy concept.

This.

I worked at a couple of fast food joints when I was younger and deposits are done on a daily basis.

I can't even imagine a reason for having two days worth of deposits.  Maybe a snowstorm and you can't get to the bank?  Then there wouldn't be much to deposit anyway.

Bad management if they didn't figure out that the deposits weren't being made daily.
 
2013-03-28 11:33:55 AM
I've worked for at least three companies where employees have tried this sort of thing. "Oh, I got robbed in the parking lot" or "They were stolen out of my car" or "I left it on the counter JUST FOR A SECOND and someone grabbed it and ran".

Yeah, they all got fired.

mscleo: I can't even imagine a reason for having two days worth of deposits.


Banks are closed on Sundays, and various holidays. Some places don't use the sealable drop bags, and have to actually take the deposit in. My store will sometimes, expecially on Thursdays, oddly enough, be really busy in  the morning and the manager won't be able to go.

Personally, two days, maybe three, is the most I will let myself leave. Any more than that and I get nervous about the money in the store.

St. Hubert's pot pies come close. And their chicken actually has flavour. Only thing I stop for in Quebec apart from refilling my tank on the way to and from T.O.

Perhaps if said employee was paid a living wage he could afford to "buy" a car with locks.

Since no is the answer...fark the employer.   If it is their money they need to pick it up.  This is not a Step and Fetch It rerun.
 
2013-03-28 11:38:43 AM
When I worked fast food, you made the deposit EVERY night.... six days!? There is a bit of a operational procedure issue here.

The town I grew up in to this day has a weird thing where all the bussinesses save resturants close at 2pm on Thursdays. I could see not making a deposit if you didn't want to use the drop slit. Miss Friday for some reason, Sat and Sunday ok unless you are making the drop before noon on sat I get not making it especially if say the manager isn't there and you've got an assistant that follows rules to the letter. That would give you 5 days on a Monday. Then again with cash tallies being deceased due to increased use of cards do you still have a big reason for daily or near daily deposits?

Sounds like you got a bad deal.

The pot pies at our KFC are awesome - and pretty damn big for $4 (something like 800+ calories).

Best item on the menu in my opinion...
 
2013-03-28 11:51:31 AM
Final note if you are in a position to make the cash deposits at the bank you can probably come up with a better way to skim cash off the business.

Meh. I work retail, but it's office supply, not food service. We don't usually drop more than a couple hundred bucks at a time. (If that.)

Anyway, we'll usually leave the saturday/sunday drops in the safe and deposit them all on monday, since we're way understaffed on the weekend and nobody is interested in either coming in early or staying after clock-out time to walk it over to the bank. (Dude, that's, like, 3 whole blocks.)

On a $11k day, we will still have a near $3k deposit, so...yeah, that's kinda a lot of scratch to leave around.

If you owned a sports car with no locks, would you loan it out to someone who goes on bar binges and loses store cash?

Dumbass needs to get a taser in the junk just for thinking we'd be stupid enough to believe this story.

When I worked at Gamestop, we only did deposits twice a week, and being a retailer that sold high-value electronics and other devices, we usually had quite a bit of cash on hand- deposits would be tallied and counted at close of business, and put in a safe, to be deposited on a day when there was enough staff to cover the store in the morning, so the other (usually me) could do a bank run.

Reminds me of a neighbor I had at one time.  Not even sure what he did for a living, but he came knocking on my door one night  around 10pm to tell me that his car was broken into and the receipts form the business where he worked had been stolen.  He warned me to keep an eye on my vehicle...cuz...robbers.  Now, I only knew the guy's first name, didn't know where he worked, he had never been to my house; in fact, my ONLY interaction with him was waving as I drove in or out of the neighborhood...and he's warning me to watch my car (cuz...robbers), in a nice, low crime neighborhood.

After he left, my wife asked me what was going on, and I told her "I don't know, looks like Ben stole money from his boss and he's trying to cover his ass...or something."

I was going to say "define employee, you mean manager right?" but this thread has taught me it's normal to give this much money to an employee. I've only carried a few hundred/a few thousand when I was running things - but I have almost no retail experience.

Huh. I would think a fast-food chain would be depositing every day, maybe not. Anyone who works/worked fast food want to weigh in? Not that it really matters, I'm just interested.
