    I've used the photocopier for personal reasons and posted with office envelopes for personal reasons

    I even used our express post envelopes once or twice eeek. Don't know how happy our shareholders will be with that.

    We started at 6am in construction, I used to set the boys off after toolbox and then go to the town pool and swim 2k. I kept my phone and two way radio at the end of the lane and used to answer radio and phone calls from the pool. We work 6 days a week is no time for exercise. Also on the same job I used to climb the local hill (the pyramid in cairns) and if somebody needed me I would say I was getting fuel and bolt back down.

    Really I could go on.. I have SO many.

    Hahaha this thread is hilarious!

    I was buying books for the kids at my work and snuck in a book for myself.
    A whole $8! And I felt so badass doing it.

    (Never mind the fact that I buy things for the centre all the time out of my pocket.)

    All I'm going to say is.. They give a strict time limit per room and in order to finish a room on time sometimes I had to cut corners, nothing overly gross, but my supervisors scared me stiff and I knew they b!tched endlessly if you were too slow for their liking.. So really it's their fault, if you look at it that way. 😬

    Edit - Obviously I don't work there anymore, it wasn't for me obviously, I lacked the care I needed because I hated it so I left.

    I used to work at a winery. Sometimes I helped label the wine and I'd accidentally stuff a label or 2 up because we were allowed to take the duds home 😝

    We are supposed to leave our phones in our locker, and have a watch on at all times- work with kids.
    I only own one watch and cannot justify buying another, and it's not suitable for work.
    So, I use my phone.... and check in with DH during toilet breaks (max twice a day).

    I worked in a supermarket when I was younger and broken Easter eggs and blocks of chocolate used to get written off as damaged and thrown out. Occasionally on a slow Sunday night we would "accidentally" break some chocolate so we could eat it. Now I see it as stealing, back then it was a genius way to get free chocolate.

    When I used to work FT, I used to have to use my phone twice a day as I had to set an alarm for when one of my students needed her diabetes meds. I figured the importance outweighed anything else.
