Aunty Bella: Miss. Temptations in the Workplace

african-american-woman-worriedThis BellaNaija reader is facing some serious temptation in the workplace and she needs your advice – should she indulge or stay away?

Aunty Bella is our agony aunt column on BellaNaija. We launched this column in the early days of BN and periodically feature issues sent in by BN readers. 
We hope the BN family can offer insightful advice.

I graduated from the university last year and I intend to further very soon but for the main time I decided to get a job at a very huge establishment as the cashier, we sell every technological advancement you can think of: laptops, scanners, photocopying machines, printers, airport seats, office seats, cables, calculators, computer games etc.

Most times we sell up to 4 or 6 million Naira in a day.

We’re 6 in total – four guys and two girls. The other girl is something else, she steals everything, she sells and pockets the money, she’s everywhere. She makes her salary in a week or sometimes two weeks. It’s irritating and yes it’s annoying. To be honest, I feel tempted to do the same, I mean if you think about it everyone steals, from politicians, pastors, businessmen and women, everyone.

I’m the cashier and I can do so many things there but I’m scared and my conscience won’t let me but at the same time I’m jealous of this lady, I mean who wouldn’t be? I can’t report her to our bosses, it’s out of the question, but please what can I do? Should I shun my conscience and go with the flow? What if I’m caught?

The shame alone would kill me, please fellow BN readers help me, this temptation is too much.
