My Brother's Salesgirl Is Stealing from Him, Should I Tell Him? by Manoftheyear: 10:37am On Jan 12, 2021
Good day guys, happy New year to everyone, please I will make this post as brief as possible.

My brother asked me to help him look after his business when he wants to travel for Xmas, and it happens that I know much about the business, and he have a salesgirl too whom from my observation is a single mother though she is still very young.

Now this is the problem, since I started coming to that shop, I noticed this girl used to do some uncertain things (wuru wuru), so I decided to be more watchful and that's when I found out what she has been doing in the shop. I have caught her red handed in this act.

The first occasion was during last week Tuesday when we were about to close for the day and I was going through the sales book only for me to realized that the items we sold earlier in the day, the quantity in the book was different from what we actually sold, she minus some quantity and I called her to it and she acted as if it was a mistake, I acted as if nothing happened.

Second incident was last week Saturday, I was in the shop and one woman came to the shop with an Item she bought from our shop, so I was in my corner not minding them but I realized she came to complain of something to her and later bought another thing, I saw the item she came with so after the woman left, I called the girl and asked her when the woman bought that item, she said it was on Thursday, so after sometime, I went to the sales book to check if she wrote it, but I was shocked when I went through the whole week sales but I couldn't find it. I kept my cool, till in the evening when we were about to go and i asked her to show me where she wrote it, only for her to be going through over and over again, I asked her, I thought you said you sold this thing on Thursday and she said no.

Now because we have closed for the day, she wrote it as Monday sales, but I keep wondering if it was only this item that the woman bought. Even is she sold it on Thursday and forget to write it down, the Money would have reflected after the close of the day, but it didn't, that means she intentionally stole the money. She is the one with shop keys and she opens the shop before i come every morning.

Now my problems are

1. I love minding my business

2. It's my brother's business which he entrusted to me to look after for him, so if after finding out all these things and still keep it to myself, if anything goes wrong in future I won't forgive myself.

3. This lady is a single mother and very young, I assume this is the only place she gets what she's using to take care of her herself and her baby, I really feel for her and I know she is going to loose her job if my brother gets to know about this.

Please what should I do?


Please forgive my errors, I'm not perfect

The problems you listed are actually your answers.

Problem 1. Mind your business, what your brother does not know will not kill him besides you didn't say his business was doing badly because of her.

Problem 2. Forgive yourself.
Because

Problem 3.
She is a single mom who is vulnerable.
It is better she is cheating your brother to sustain her baby than she engages into prostitution.
If she dies from HIV or her baby dies from malnutrition because you made her lose her job or blocked her access..will you be able to forgive yourself?

She is young and attractive....you could as well start a relationship with her so that you can cater to her.
That way, what she steals is still within the family.

So in summary;
Mind your business and don't tell your brother. Forgive yourself for not telling your brother because the culprit is a single mother who needs to do what she is doing if she and her baby will survive.

1. You claim you want to mind your own business, but the fact that you were put in charge of the shop in your brother's absence makes that shop your business.

2. Being a single mom is not an excuse for stealing. As long as she's being paid her agreed salary.

3. The only reason I can think of that would make you be wondering whether to tell your own brother or not about his salesgirl that his robbing him blind is if you're sleeping with her.

1...Talk to her like a brother-sister conversation, let her know that you're aware of what she's doing and let her know that if she doesn't change, it'll cost her "her job" (of course she'll still do it, but the fear of being caught will be there so she won't over do it, she go use sense).... that's if you're pitiful and u don't want to be the reason someone joy is taken cool


2...Tell your brother and let her get the Bleep out of his shop since she's greedy.... that's if u don't give a damn undecided, but I won't advice u to do this because country hard and everybody deserves a second chance undecided and there is no guarantee that new employee won't do the same (even worse)

Manoftheyear:


Yes I'm pitiful, but at the same time I don't want something that will affect my brother's business because that my bro no dey too dey shop. And na that girl dey hold the shop keys

Since u don't want her to lose her job

Tell ur brother to be watchful and monitor everything anytime he's around, warn ur brother wella

Don't act like you caught her red handed to ur brother just tell him to keep his eyes open


Although being a single mom isn't an excuse for stealing but country hard undecided

Put urself in ur brother's shoe...if u you're the owner of the business, can u do with her staying, if yes....fine

If no...let her go undecided

this is really hard....I'm sure if u tell your bro,he might relieve her of her duties and thereby making things worse for her but theft is theft....she's doing this at the detriment of your Bros business......when your brother arrives(that's if he stays in the shop everytime)find a way to tell him to get hold of the sales book to be sure every sales was recorded cos sometimes the sales girl might forget to write down the sales which might result to excess or loss by the end of the day... especially when he wants to balance the account....so for that reason,he should be more vigilant...but don't tell him straight up that the girl stole from him.

You claim you are want to mind your own business, yet you were put in charge of the shop in your brother's absence. That shop IS your business.

Is being a single mom an excuse for stealing? Is she not being paid?

Lol, come of it bro, nothing like that ever happened. I'm just being a human

I want you to be understanding with this one..

Tell your brother to increase her salary...

While you are there try and maybe give her daily incentives...

Street dey every where...

Very few people fully depend on their salary...


Or you can just call her and tell her you know what's up...
Tell her to stop...
Then dey put for am small small...

You don't have to tell your brother.

Though being a single mother is not a justification for her action, it's just greed.

All you should do is warn her against such act from repeating itself, and strict punishment will be taken if caught again.

The problems you listed are actually your answers.

Problem 1. Mind your business, what your brother does not know will not kill him besides you didn't say his business was doing badly because of her.

Problem 2. Forgive yourself.
Because

Problem 3.
She is a single mom who is vulnerable.
It is better she is cheating your brother to sustain her baby than she engages into prostitution.
If she dies from HIV or her baby dies from malnutrition because you made her lose her job or blocked her access.

She is young and attractive....you could as well start a relationship with her so that you can cater to her.
That way, what she steals is still within the family.




You can't be this insensitive......



There are many ways you can make it while working in a provision shop without having to steal from the shop....



Being very nice to people can have them drop her tips.....



A shop attendant got a Federal government job because he often assist a man take his items to his car without seeking for money.... He was too nice that the politician called him and handed him an appointment letter....

Stealing is wrong and shouldn't be tolerated in any way....
