I am a tech in a urology floor, I have had my ups and down and made my intention to transfer floor known to my HR and director. I agreed to work until the end of the current schedule. On 25th December, the Xmas decorations are already being taking down and hanging in the nursing station are socks filled with candy with dr names. Walking the hall way I saw a nurse with unit secretary eating candy and taking it away from the socks and I joined the party. They had pen in them and being in nursing school
, I went hunting for the pens. We shared the candy among some nurses and kids that came visiting the patients. I took some candy for any kid I see and I honestly don't eat them at all.
Fast forward to 30th dec, rumors started that they are about to fire some worker for stealing candies and I was shook. I said I took some cos I didn't know it belongs to any and decoration are already being taken down and candy was inside the Xmas socks.
Called the HR this morning and he said " your manger said you can't transfer cos they caught you camera stealing candy, you need to settle that because is a big problem".
I dont even even know how to defend my actions, the nurse with me has gone to face panel about this and tomorrow they wil call me. How can I explain being fired over candy???
