GOING’ROUND AND ‘ROUND
Nobody was embezzling. It was just a minor accounting anomaly which occasionally caused me problems.
I approached the bookkeeper. She said she wasn’t authorized to modify procedure. The Office Manager was always hip-deep in alligators. At the weekly progress meeting, no-one wanted to accept responsibility.
The CFO said to get his secretary schedule a meeting, and we’d ‘discuss it.’ I finally got the Documents Clerk to include a line-item in the annual shareholders’ report. Suddenly the President was all about transparency.
The squeaky wheel really is the one that gets the grease.
