Have you ever brought home items or office supplies from the office?

What a coincidence! Just last night while we were watching a tv show, there was a commercial about this issue. It stated that this particular act is one form of corruption. I've got to admit that I'm guilty of this. But I don't entirely believe that bringing home office supplies from the office is a form of corruption. I'd like to make a point here if you'll let me. For instance, there are days when we have too much workload and we are beating deadlines. So, in order to finish the task before the set deadline, we have to continue working at home and bring other office supplies along. I think it's but right to use the office supplies from the office to do your work. In fact in this particular case I've mentioned, it seems that an employee who brings paperworks and does these at home is the one on the losing end; mainly because he or she is sacrificing a part of her quality time for her family just to finish her office tasks. Also, this employee is normally not paid extra for the overtime rendered at home. There are also times when an employee himself provides for her own supplies at the office, which he doesn't reimburse his expenses from the company.

Yes I do. I brought home some floppy drives which they condemned because they thought it was defective. I took them to my friend techinician and he said they were still good. I returned them to the office and told my superior about it but she told me it was up to me to give it or to store it back in the office.
