Is it possible to be addicted to a cell phone? In our business we have a rule no cell phones in the building, mainly because a manager was attached to her cell phone.Monday a friend dropped something by our store and I was gone. I asked her to check and see if the cell phone was on a table in my office or at the front desk. Sure enough it was in the office.
Tuesday I put on my "dective" hat, met my fiend at a restaurant down from us. I could sit on a bench and see our store. Not 10 minutes after I leave I see her going to her car, retrieving her cell phone. Took off my "dective" hat, put on my "owner" hat and we walked back to our store. I walked in and she ignored me, pretending to be busy. I could not find the phone anywhere, but I knew she brought it in. By now she is out on the circuit, and buzz, buzz goes the cell phone. She had hidden it behind a stapler and the pc tower. I called her in the office and asked her why and her response was "I wanted to see who called". Until I told her to go put the phone in the car she made no effort to do it. Her response was "sorry"!She had about an hour and a half until we closed but she couldn't wait. I asked her about Monday night and she denied it. Then she spotted my friend in my office. Busted again. Lying and breaking rules all for a cell phone. A cell phone is going to cost her a job. Amazing the theory that rules are made for everyone but me!
