My father was a CPA and specialized in auditing. He was often hired by companies who were trying to figure out who was stealing from the company. The first thing father always asked for was a list of people’s vacations over the last year. He told me that most often the embezzler was the person who never took a vacation and seemed like the most loyal and hardest working person in the company. If this person went on vacation and gave up control they might be exposed. I was amazed how often this theory proved true.
In my life, I’ve done my best to show employers that I am not an embezzler by being lazy, disloyal, and frequently on vacation.
