When we owned our restaurant, we expected the employees to give their friends extra food, soda, etc., and also eat the ‘mistakes’. However, when it came to whole hams vanishing, that was a different matter.
We didn’t have cameras, back in the early 90’s, so had to be devious ourselves to find out what was going on.
Finally the day came when the dishwasher took out the trash. My husband went out after he had come back in, and went through the dumpster.
There is was, wrapped up in loads of foil, and several bags. We had our culprit, and the ham returned to where it belonged. The guy got fired, and I am pleased to say that the hams didn’t go missing again.
