Veronaz -  There are cameras everywhere and they are watched (how we busted a private nurse for one resident going into another resident's apartment) and everyone knows we are watched.

Mime -  My direct supervisor is awesome.  He is funny, easy going, expects hard work but works just as hard along side us.  I got lucky after my last boss, who came straight from the bowels of a very hot area!

Yeah, some people don’t know how much we (general) are being watching everyday, everyplace……I guess that’s the point.  I read something about a person getting arrested for making threats via a payphone – thinking they were being slick.  Nope.

It’s good you have a great boss.  For instance, if boss was buddy-buddy with that co-worker, things would have been different,

Bosses from the bowels……what a thread that would be.  ::shudder::

Yes, I think we should start one..

Oh yes, I would have some winners for that thread...
All will be well, and all manner of things will be well.

SS coworker was supposed to split the time but she left at 2 30 and didn't come back till after 5 so she only did a half hour

This was when I would go to the boss and say "Is everything okay with SSCoworker?  She was supposed to relieve me for parking duty at X;00 but didn't come outside until after 5."

And s/he could say "Yes, I sent her on an errand, sorry about that" or "I will find out."

She just seems to be digging that hole deeper and deeper!

As for the whole gifting issue; my grandmother was in a small nursing home, maybe 30 beds. And it was private pay, so most of the residents were fairly well off...but they way they did gifts was if you wanted to, and it was completely voluntary, you could give  to the office, and they would then pool and distribute it to all the staff.  I know sometimes too, others brought food for all to share.

But if we had done that, and found out that one staffer had appropriated it for herself, we too would have wonderred about what else might have gone missing from Grandmas' room.

My daughter works in a multi level of care retirement home. She isnt allowed to accept anything from a resident - unless it is being offered to everyone, not cookies, candy - nothing.They cannot accept a monetary gift directly from the residents at all. she gets a Christmas gift/bonus that comes from the residents contributing to the fund and it is dispersed out based on job, time on job etc.

What part of v_e = \sqrt{\frac{2GM}{r}} don't you understand? It's only rocket science!

She was off the clock at 2 30 but said she would be back (she asked for the OT and it was approved) and I was supposed to do 3- 4 30, her 4 30- 6...she did 5 20 to 5 50 then she came in to get food.  Boss told her to punch out because she was done helping...she was mad and whined all today about how all her extra work is never appreciated.  And, although it was hard, I managed not to blurt out "You'll get a pat on the back when you actually do something other than moan and groan."
