Nobody knows whether you're going to get fired except your boss. So go to work tonight and find out.

Completely agree with both of these posts.

You sound extremely young (your words plus the fact that you can't find the apostrophe key). If you are, it's time to grow up and take some responsibility for your life and actions. If you're not, then I'm the one "smh."

Go to work. Don't compound one bad choice with another one. You have a job and you are scheduled to work. Go work. You obviously know what would have been the correct decision by the way you are worrying about the potential consequences of your action. No one here can tell you if you'll be fired or not. Go to work, be responsible, and consider your choices and how they impact your life situation and the person you are becoming.

Mod cut.

Why do you keep arguing your case here? You were in the wrong and you know it, or you wouldn't be worried you'll get fired, you wouldn't be defending yourself so hard, and you wouldn't have posted in the first place (though if you honestly thought you were going to get responses saying "yeah man, keep it!"... well...). So, if it's such a big deal, again: why not just turn in the money? Then you do not have to worry, and you are not lacking anything you didn't have to begin with.

(And if you think it'll go any better for you getting fired for being a no-show at your job... good luck to you. And if you have "smh" for someone who lost something that was theirs and now you feel entitled to it... well... I don't believe in karma but I always hope it comes along for people anyway, and I hope you lose something important to you and watch someone else pick it up and keep it because 'finders keepers smh.")

I would call the manager immediately. Perhaps you could say you saw the $100 bill on the floor and thought it was yours but when you got home you have two $100 bill in your wallet and realized it didn't belong to you. You could say you wanted to notify him in case a customer came in looking for the money. I would try to preempt the boss confronting you.

If you don't go in you will look guilty especially if a customer has claimed they lost $100 prompting them to view video.

Im not young, my phone isnt on autocorrect. Mod cut. I came here because i do in fact feel guilty, not for you to say keep it. Its done, I kept it and put it towards my car repair. I didnt ask what should i do, I asked if anyone knew the possibility of being fired within this situation. I dont even feel comfortable coming to my boss about it now, its too late. Its a big deal because like i said earlier, this hasnt happened to me before.

You took money that you knew wasn't yours. I don't see a lot of ways that can be interpreted nor can I see any excuses that justify it.


I don't know what you thought people here were going to tell you.

Yes you could be fired if video clearly establishes that you took money that didn't belong to you. It doesn't matter whether you clocked in or not. I don't know if your story of picking up money that you dropped is credible and consistent with what could be on the video and/or witnessed by others. So whether or not you are fired will depend upon that. There is a chance that the $100 loss is undiscovered so the video is not viewed and/or goes unreported. But you are taking a chance.

Well to admit to a theft she will most likely be fired and possibly prosecuted. I am only suggesting a course that will allow her to give the money back, possibly keep her job and learn her lesson. Otherwise, I suspect she will simply keep the money and take her chances.

Finding it at work changes the dynamics, and yeah, I'd hand over the money to the store management. What if a customer comes in and asks for it? They'd go to the management, not walk around and ask each employee.

This doesn't have to weigh on your shoulders, or be a matter of guilt. You can always explain that you thought it out, and decided that the right thing to do was pass it on to them. That removes the likelihood of firing, helps the possible customer (should he/she return), and elevate you in standing. Three good qualities, in addition to getting rid of your guilt and paranoia.

Not sure. You could always say it was yours given the situation which seems plausible.
