So, I got sick yesterday and was cashiering when I had a long line of folks wanting to check out @ the grocery store. So, I quickly reached behind me grabbed a couple of swigs of juice before I puked everywhere.
Well it was coming out anyway - so I asked the boss to check for me, since I was the checker in the deli @ the time. When I came back to my register he asked for my receipt and I asked him if I should go pay for it now, as I was just in the bathroom getting sick. He said "just hold off!" Then brought me back to this office and said "no tolerance".
To which I always have my receipts. Well I slipped this one time because of being sick and now I am not sure what they will tell the next prospective employer.
I guess to sum up all of the above - what can they legally say to the next prospective employer...if anything regarding that incident? I am @ a loss because I was really trying to be do the right thing and I got caught red-handed because of being sick. I understand policy but it was a $1.79 drink and I had $$ in my pocket.
