“What goes around”
A donut My first job was as for a moving company. The previous owners had left the books in a mess, so the new owner, a former attorney, hired me to straighten things out. He also hired a CPA and a new dispatcher who I will call Tim.

Tim decided to help me out by making some collection calls. One woman owed $800 from two years before. Tim made many calls and even rang her doorbell to collect the money. Then, all proud of himself, he went to the new owner to report his success. The owner took the cash from Tim and put it directly in his pocket, without so much as a thankyou.

The owner continued to pocket money, then several of our paychecks bounced. I called it quits and so did Tim and the CPA.

Four years later, I heard that the (former attorney) owner was being sued by many employees and that he was probably going to jail for tax evasion. LINK
