    It actually says in our code of conduct that you can photocopy personal stuff etc as long as it isn't excessive or interrupts with your work. In saying that there was a policy come out that panadol isn't considered first aid so you can't take work supply of that

    I printed and made my wedding invites on night shift. It was on vellum?? Paper and I could only print one or 2 at a time otherwise the printer would start smoking. I didn't care if it blew up, just didn't want to set the fire alarm off at 2am!!

    The only naughty thing I do at my work is when the chef has made peanut butter chocolate slice (it is soooo good!) for the residents, I will take a piece for a resident that I know won't eat it and is in their room, then when I get there and they decline it.... ohhh I guess I just have to eat it then.
    But even with that excuse I would get in big big trouble if I was caught.

    Why? Wouldn't they just chuck it?
    Maybe you should bring it back, say they don't want it, and ask if you can eat it?

    I'm a bit of a goody-two-shoes, but probably the worst I've done is told the boss I'd put in calls when I actually hadn't (of a hound-a-grieving-family nature, so I don't feel bad about that at all).
    I've also made coffee pit-stops while out in the company car.
    We're allowed to charge phones, use Facebook and private email at work.
    In my past (young) life doing bar work in a nightclub I'd occasionally have a drink or two myself, but I didn't want to steal so I'd buy a little bottle of something, leave it in a locker and one of the floor staff would pour me a drink every now and then. I'm almost positive my boss knew, there were cameras everywhere.

    What a bunch of dodgy biatches. I may or may not have availed myself of the high quality printer at my work for my engagement and wedding invitations

    When I was 19 I got up close and personal (just making out) with a fellow staff member when we were working. It was night shift (with nothing to do for most of the shift) and we had been chatting and getting to know each other, flirting, etc. When he kissed me, I didn't stop it. In the days after, he turned out to be a bit psycho and started stalking me 😐

    I've misappropriated some supplies ie gloves, pens, post it notes and sterile dressings.

    I've also used the printer for personal use and work phones for the Occ calls.

    Sure. I totally agree with you.

    But commenting negatively or sarcastically and in doing so changing the tone of a thread is a choice as well :-) There is, of course, another choice people can make.

    I obviously can't and don't want to control what people choose to contribute, just explaining what my intentions were originally.

    I agree, but I just want to point out that if someone admitted to committing fraud, murder, etc here, it would change the tone. To some, invasions of privacy are just as bad, and expressing that we feel so isn't us being judgemental or trying to take over the thread. It's a legitimate response to something.
