I fucked up reeeeally bad (Caught stealing at work)
I made a series of idiotic decisions, and got caught.
I work in a coffee shop that offers prepaid gift cards, customers load cards, use that as cash. I, for the past few months, have been falsely adding tips to these card transactions, and got busted this afternoon. I was basically told that they had been wondering why my afternoons were so much smaller than the other people's for awhile now, and after printing out all the transactions they noticed that there were tips on almost all of the gift card transactions, and that they were large tips. I was given the option to quit, they will go through everything tonight, tell me how much I owe them, and I meet them tomorrow with the money, or they will print everything and go to the cops. I am absolutely fine with repaying everything, it was a stupid, stupid decision, and I feel terrible about it. I was stressed about money, but that is no excuse. My only worry is that I will not have enough cash to give them, and they will not be willing to deal. Is there any room for me to negotiate a payment plan here? The evidence they have seems terribly circumstantial. Essentially, they don't think I was rightfully being tipped that much, but there isn't really any way to prove it without going to each individual person and asking. Again, I am fine with repaying it. I know I was a moron. Help would be appreciated.
