http://058a2ae9.seriousurls.com (NOT A REF LINK) this guy was doing his boss a favor by working overnight to get the store ready for some martha stuart reps and he didnt want to leave his dog alone at home and so he brought it with him and left him in the EMPTY day care area which he continuously checked in on the dog.. they fired him for theft of services because he was using the daycare which is a business service!! i think this is nuts! he was doing his boss a favor for doing the shift and no one was using the area and no one was taking care of or feeding the dog the stores food so whats the big deal? customers can bring in their pets all the time! if there was a sitter that had to watch his dog too or his dog ran around tearing up stuff then yeah but considering it really did not cost or make them lose anything i think its crazy.. what do you think? the guy was eventually given his job back but still!!

Hey moonlit! I sure hope that this moron who fired this poor man is fired for his being a complete azzhole! I hope that this store gets many letters and maybe is picketed until this man gets his job back! First of all, this is a store that allows people to bring their pets into! Second, this man did absoulutely nothing wrong! He was doing the store a favor by picking up this overnight shift! All he did was bring his dog into the store where pets are allowed and checked on him once in awhile which doesn't constitute breaking any rules! He still was working! So what the hell is wrong with this? I really hope that either this moronic azzhole who fires him rehires him or some other wonderful pet store hires him instead because he is such a loyal employee!

it said he was rehired but i dont know about his boss and what happened to him.. heck i dont know if i would want to go back since its almost as if the boss framed him in a sense! i would be so paranoid everyone was after me!

Just another example of an anal boss who probably doesn't deserve his job....I mean give me a break...he was doing them a favor and look what he got....kind of gives you reason not to trust anyone anymore....
