I actually worked with Ben and really, really like him. Tragic; too bad NO retail store will pay their employees enough to keep them honest!! Sorry about your decision Ben, but NOTHING hidden will not be disclosed - just remember that my friend. I think you will have some time on your hands now to think about your choices, I am just sorry you elected to go down this path....

I worked with Ben too, It made me frustrated because as a supervisor people looked up to him. Plus he was younger then me, I actually listened to him.
It makes me wonder Why? he would do something like that.
Also he seemed like a really nice guy. But you could easily read his face when something was wrong or he wasn't feeling good.

Honesty can't be bought. Your attempt to shift some of the blame from Ben is moronic. Bet you're a thief too.
